new york 2015 mazda mx 5 miata club edition set to bow

Coming next week, Mazda will unveil its most aggressive version of the new MX-5 Miata when it brings the MX-5 Miata Club Edition to New York.

Though little information was given about what the Club Edition will bring to the party, Mazda says the model will amplify the driving experience already found in the standard model, “harking back to the early lightweight sports cars that inspired it, but serving as a beacon for the future as a thoroughly modern, sophisticated package.”

Speculation points to the Accessories Design Concept from the 2015 Chicago Auto Show for inspiration, as well as the current Club Edition, including black wheels, limited-slip differential, and an appearance package.

      "…the current club trim is essentially an appearance package with limited-slip-differential and sport suspension…" And 6-speed transmission, fabric top on the soft-top variant. The reason I bought mine, was that it had every performance option, without the unnecessary stuff. I do also like the appearance package. Wee can hope that the new one will at least be tuned for a few more ponies than the standard 155.

    I'd like to see a hatchback coupe version, along the lines of the MGB GT or for that matter, the original RX-7. No hurry, Mazda, I won't need it for quite a few years.

      People have been demanding one of these for probably 25 years. Mazda even produced (literally) a handful of the NB version and declined going into full-scale production. Don't worry, they're not hurrying.

    I still dislike using the word "bow" for "debut." From Merriam-Webster: - to cease from competition or resistance: submit, yield - to bend the head, body, or knee in reverence, submission, or shame

      @FormerFF >>Remember, this site is called “The Truth About Cars”, not “The Truth About Grammar”. And the Truth is the Mazda MX-5 Miata Club edition is set to debut, not to exit.

    Drop the Renesis in there as an option... Makes more power and still revs to the moon while being light... Seems like a no brainer...
