Mazda MX-5 Berkeley

The MX-5 Berkeley was a 1997 limited edition for the UK market. The car was the equivalent of the Japanese SR Limited model, with a production run of 400. The Berkeley name comes from the luxury Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge, London and at the time Mazda ran a competition to win a weekend break there.

  • 15" 5-spoke alloy wheels with locking wheel nuts
  • Sparkle Green metallic paint
  • Berkeley exterior badges
