2017 Mazda Miata MX-5 RFFunctional and flexible, this one is also limited!

Beautiful, passionate and yet simple and elegant, the 2017 Mazda MX-5 Miata RF made a quite dramatic debut at this year's New York International Auto Show. Demonstrated with exclusive color combination and some sweet tweaks, the Grand Touring-based vehicle will definitely be pushing Mazda's boundaries even further!

Something more: this show car is expected to become the offspring of a special limited lineup of just 1,000 units, bearing the name of MX-5 RF Launch Edition. Cool.

And here's what we know so far

Mazda North American Operations will notify a special group of customers about the offering of the limited edition and exclusively will offer the vehicle with numerous tweaking features, one of which is the choice between SKYACTIV-MT six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox.

Along with this and the exclusive Machine Grey finish, the lucky buyers will be granted with a custom-designed and numbered 42mm Tourneau watch to complement the limited run. Sweet.

And what about for the rest of Mazda fans?

Well, they will miss... nothing. All these "exclusive" features will be available for purchase, along with numerous more tweakable stuff: the Grand Touring trim level will be available, Auburn Nappa leather interior and badging, Club trim level and more.

This is what we know so far. Hopefully, there will be more news and more stuff revealed as soon as possible. Meanwhile, stick with us!
