Arrow Mazda Releases Special 'Prestige Edition' Roadster for the ...

Hiroshima, Japan, Oct 1, 2007 - (JCN Newswire) - Mazda Motor Corporation today announced the launch of the special edition Mazda Roadster Prestige Edition for the Japanese domestic market. Mazda's two-seat lightweight open-top sports car (known as the Mazda MX-5 in overseas markets) has been newly outfitted with premium features including black genuine leather seats and alloy wheels made by BBS Japan Co. Ltd. The Prestige Edition goes on sale from today at all Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealerships throughout Japan.

The Mazda Roadster Prestige Edition is based on the Roadster RS RHT and Roadster VS RHT - the premium grades of the Mazda Roadster Power Retractable Hard Top range. This new top-of-the-range sports car appropriately features heated bucket seats with black genuine leather upholstery, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels forged by BBS Japan Co. Ltd., stainless steel scuff plates and front fog lights. Additionally, a front strut tower bar (cowl connecting type) and Mazda's Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system are specially added to the six-speed automatic transmission (AT) model.

The manufacturer's suggested retail price (including consumption tax) for the Mazda Roadster Prestige Edition is 2,950,000 yen for the six-speed manual transmission model and 3,050,000 yen for the six-speed automatic transmission model. Sales will be conducted on a made-to-order basis.

Base models:

Roadster Power Retractable hard Top RS RHT (six-speed manual transmission version) and VS RHT (six-speed automatic transmission version).

Special equipment:

- Exclusive heated bucket seats with black genuine leather upholstery and door trim

The high quality, refined leather bucket seats are exquisitely crafted and highlighted with bold grey stitching. The seats enhance the black interior design and match every body color.

- Driver's side ratchet lever seat lifter

A lever on the side of the driver's seat can be used to adjust the seat height by 30 mm.
