IRVINE, Calif. (October 3, 2016) – Mazda North American Operations (MNAO) today announced the preorder for the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Launch Edition is now open to the general public. With a majority of the MX-5 Launch Edition cars already spoken for by loyal Mazda owners, a limited supply is still available for customers to visit MX5RFPreorder.com to submit a $500 refundable deposit toward purchasing one of the remaining 1,000 limited-edition vehicles.
Deliveries of the MX-5 RF Launch Edition will begin in early 2017.
“The MX-5 RF Launch Edition has a personality all its own, and stays true to the legacy of pure driving pleasure,” said Robert Davis, senior VP, U.S. Operations, MNAO. “The preorder is a great opportunity for current and prospective customers to join us as we usher in a new era for the beloved roadster. This helps pave the way for when the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF makes its way to dealerships next spring.”
Pricing for the MX-5 RF Launch Edition starts at an MSRP from $33,850 for the SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual and a MSRP1 from $34,925 for the six-speed automatic transmission. The special edition vehicle is based on the Grand Touring trim level of the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF. It features a Machine Gray Metallic exterior paint color and Auburn Nappa leather interior trim with a hand-painted black roof panel. No other U.S.-bound MX-5 RF model will have the black top or Nappa leather interior available for 2017, much less in the same vehicle.
The only option customers will need to select either the SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic transmission.
