MX5 1.8 ICON

Mazda MX5 1.8 ICON special edition for sale by a long standing MX5 Owners Club member.

A limited edition of just 750 released in 2000, this car is now becoming quite rare.

3 owners, current owner since 2012. The car has done 28600 miles.

Asking price: £5,500.

Purchased from MX5 specialist Supercar Classics in Cheshire.

Paint is Art Vin Rouge - a very attractive deep metallic burgundy/maroon. Interior is cream leather with wood trim and really nice cream dials with chrome bezels.

The paintwork is in exceptional condition, the front end barely has even a stone chip. The black cloth hood is in fine order and includes a glass heated rear screen. The interior is also excellent with brand new floor mats - the original Icon special car mats are also included although they need a little restoration. Mechanically it is in top condition and will be sold with a new MOT - it drives and handles as you would expect and pulls away really well.

Soon after purchasing the car was given a full professional underbody protection treatment by Chassis Clean in Cheshire. They had the car for four days - it was thoroughly steam cleaned and inspected, then a combination of Dinitrol ant-rust and underseal treatments were applied to all the underbody surfaces and cavities including the chassis box sections. A combination of this and the fact that the car is garaged full time when not in use and has only very rarely been caught out in any rain, means the underbody is in exceptional condition - some recent photos are shown below.

The wheels are not original, they are 16 inch Lenso BSXs with Falken 205/45/16 tyres. The originals wheels are available if required.

The suspension has been upgraded with Spax adjustable coilovers at a cost fitted of nearly £1000. The original shocks and springs are available.

The exhaust back box has been replaced with a stainless steel one from MX5 Parts.

A Mazda chrome boot rack has been fitted and is included with the sale.

This is a really nice car that has attended many MX5 club events and has taken us on some memorable holidays but it really could do with being driven more and have a new owner enjoy it.
