2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Launch Editions Sold Out

2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Launch Editions Sold Out

Ok maybe they didn’t sell out as quite as fast as we thought they would, but sell out they did.

Mazda says its allotment of 1,000 limited edition 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF Launch Editions are all now spoken for. More than 500 loyal customers placed preorders during an invite-only period starting September 26. The remaining cars sold out in just 13 hours when preorders opened to the general public October 3.

Two-thirds of customers went with a manual over the six-speed automatic.

The Launch Edition retractable power hardtop features an Machine Gray Metallic color with an exclusive hand-painted black roof and Auburn Nappa leather seating. Special badging is also a given.

Mazda just starting building the new MX-5 RF last week and the first deliveries are expected in early 2017. The fastback will also come in standard-production Club and Grand Touring trims.

MX-5 RF Club models equipped with the six-speed manual transmission can be further optioned with the Brembo/BBS Package that includes a front shock-tower brace; side sill body extensions; forged, lightweight BBS 17-inch wheels; and Brembo front brakes with wider brake pads for greater heat dissipation during spirited driving. The package also includes red-painted brake calipers.

MX-5 RF Grand Touring models feature heated leather seating surfaces, Adaptive Front-lighting System, High Beam Control and Lane Departure Warning.

For 2017, all MX-5 Club models will come standard with Blind Spot Monitoring and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, regardless of their roof option. Previously, these features were available only on MX-5 Grand Touring models.

The manual Club model starts from $32,390 including destination. The manual Grand Touring model from $34,660. You’ll have to fork out an additional $130 for advanced keyless entry on most trims.
