Did you know... everyone loves the Mazda MX-5 Kuro? Why? Because this special edition pays homage to Mazda's racing credentials. These include the MX-5 GT4 from the British GT Championship, the SKYACTIV diesel racing engine for Le Mans, and the MX-5 GT Concept road-legal track car. As such, the Mazda MX-5 Kuro looks more hard-core than the rest of the production range. The black roof and mirrors, diffuser-style sports bumper, and gunmetal wheels ensure that. These complement its heated black leather seats and the three sporty finishes: Velocity Red Mica, Crystal White Pearlescent and Brilliant Black. Peter Allibon, Sales Director for Mazda UK, revealed: “Special edition models of the MX- 5 are incredibly popular in the UK, and now the Kuro offers a unique combination of sports focused exterior styling - and sophisticated leather interior fittings - in a sports car that remains unrivalled as an exhilarating drive that can also be used everyday.”

The Mazda MX-5 Kuro is available in two forms, the 1.8-litre Convertible and the 2.0-litre Roadster Coupé. These produce 126PS and 160PS respectively, and rocket to 62mph in 9.9 and 7.9 seconds. Both have Dynamic Stability Control and Traction Control systems for safer handling, and the tin-top version has a limited slip differential and extra air- bags too. Prices start at £18,495 for the Convertible and £21,995 for the faster Roadster Coupé. Modest sums for fantastic cars. No wonder everyone loves the Mazda MX-5 Kuro.
