The One-Millionth Mazda MX-5, a commemorative model celebrating the production of 1 million units of Mazda’s iconic two-seater convertible sports car, has returned to the company’s Hiroshima headquarters.
Mazda organised the One-Millionth MX-5 tour to celebrate with fans the achievement of 1 million units and to say thank you to everyone who has supported the model over the years. Over the course of the tour the car was exhibited at 35 events in Japan, the U.K., Spain, Germany, Belgium, the USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, and more than 10,000 MX-5 fans signed their name on the bodywork.
The car was on display in New Zealand during February at the Leadfoot Festival and Mad Mike’s Summer Bash at Hampton Downs.
Mazda New Zealand Managing Director, David Hodge, said the MX-5 was extremely popular with people queuing up to get the chance to sign this iconic vehicle.
“It was great to see New Zealand signatures join others from all over the world and it really brought home the fact that people from different countries, cultures and generations have supported the MX-5 for more than a quarter of a century.”
The One-Millionth MX-5 took part in the parade at the Hiroshima Flower Festival on May 3 and will be on display in the lobby of Mazda’s Hiroshima headquarters from May 8-12.
