Mazda MX-5 Jasper Conran

The Jasper Conran MX-5 was a UK special edition for the year 2000. This model was created in collaboration with British fashion designer Jasper Conran. The car was based on a standard 1.8iS so featured a 5-speed gearbox with LSD. There were two specifications available, 400 in Brilliant Black with black leather interior, and 100 painted in the unique Platinum Silver with a red leather interior.

Both cars featured luxury interiors with Wilton carpets throughout and high quality Connolly leather for the seats, door panels, and tonneau cover. The interior also features several aluminium silver accents around the air vents, instruments, door handles, and centre console.

The 3-spoke Nardi steering wheel was given new silver trim and a silver gearknob and handbrake handle were also added. The standard Mazda stereo was upgraded to a Sony CD MiniDisc unit and the interior also gets a numbered badge. The exterior changes included unique design 15" BBS alloy wheels, and an exhaust tailpipe trim.
