Mazda Motor Corporation has released the Mazda Roadster BLACK TUNED, a special edition version of its two-seat sports car, for the Japanese market. The special edition Roadster (known overseas as the Mazda MX-5) is on sale at all Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealerships throughout Japan.

The Mazda Roadster was originally launched in 1989 and is currently sold in approximately 60 countries around the world. Total production stands at over 900,000 units.

The special edition BLACK TUNED Roadster is based on the premium 'RS RHT' and 'VS RHT' model grades that feature Mazda's power retractable hard top (RHT). The BLACK TUNED theme is reflected in special features including a Brilliant Black roof and door mirrors, and Gun Metallic 17-inch alloy wheels. Interior quality is also enhanced, with the seats and steering wheel covered in black leather with sand-coloured stitching.

Three external body colours are available, including two exclusive colours – Spirited Green Metallic and Velocity Red Mica – and the optional Crystal White Pearl Mica.
