This car was significant to Mazda for a number of reasons. The first turbocharged Miata, it was the most powerful version ever offered by Mazda at the time, sporting 180 horsepower. This is also the 700,000th Miata to emerge from the factory, and was the first to be sold without the familiar Miata badge on the back, only showing MX-5 as it is called in the rest of the world. The MAZDASPEED MX-5 was built for two years, with a mere 5,142 produced.
