“Along with the privilege of exclusivity and being among the first 1,000 to take delivery, owners will be able to enjoy our latest entertainment, safety and luxury technologies — many of which are unique among sports cars,’’ said Jim O’Sullivan, president and CEO of Mazda North American Operations.

New Miata Club Edition Makes Waves at New York Auto Show

The Mazda MX-5 Miata has made its reputation as the world’s best and most iconic two-door roadster—not as a throaty and angry muscle car. At the New York Auto Show, however, Mazda just revealed the Miata Club Edition, which the automaker touts as the “most aggressive” Miata ever. While it still doesn’t have a crazy huge engine, the styling of the new Club Edition hits much harder.

Miata Club EditionBasically, if you want a Miata but you want it to look just a little leaner and meaner, the new Club Edition is the way to go. It still features a 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine—good for 155 horsepower and 144 lb-ft of torque—so it won’t guzzle gas like an angry muscle car, but it might just look a little more like one.

The new Miata does come with a bevy of performance improvements in other areas like suspension, handling, and more—so the Club Edition definitely ups the driving experience for those lucky enough to get their hands on one.
