10 Minutes! That’s all it Took for the Mazda MX-5 Miata Anniversary Edition to Sell Out
The Mazda MX-5 celebrated its 25th birthday on February 10 2014 and as a gift to its loyal customers and fans, Mazda announced that an anniversary edition of the iconic roadster would be released.
The news was announced back in April at the New York International Auto Show and as with all good special editions, there was obviously only going to be a set number available. That magic figure was 100 and Mazda opened a dedicated website back on May 20 to gauge interest, which was supposedly going to stay open for 11 days or until 250 potential customers had registered.
The reality, however, is that within just 10 minutes, 250 interested people had signed up. Mazda will now contact them all and the first 100 verified customers will be able to pre-order the MX-5 Miata 25th Anniversary Edition in stunning Soul Red.
The company’s official press release stated: “Upon verification of purchase intent and transmission selection, the customer’s information will then be forwarded to the dealership of their choosing to finalize the transaction.”
Also, did you know that the MX-5 currently holds the Guinness World Record for the best selling two-seater sports car of all time? Well now you do. Furthermore, the MX-5 is estimated to break the one million sales barrier next year – no wonder the limited edition sold out so fast!
Even though it’s too late, you can still discover more on this story by reading the official Mazda Press Release. Don’t feel too disappointed though as a regular model Miata will cost you a great deal less and will undoubtedly provide a serious amount of enjoyment nonetheless.
Just to tease you a bit more, here’s a Youtube video showcasing what you missed out on:
