Priced from £20,995 for the entry 125bhp 1.8-litre petrol model, it's £1,000 more than the equivalent MX-5 in SE trim. However, if you opt for the £22,995 158bhp 2.0-litre model, there is an £800 saving against the MX-5 in Sport Tech Nav.

Both models of the Sport Graphite Edition support 17-inch allow rims powder painted dark grey in color. Black leather heated seats along with a 5.8-inch TomTom integrated SatNav with bluetooth compatibility in addition to limited edition insignia around the interior and exterior of the car.

The Sport Graphite offers a variety of the paint options, which include Aquatic Blue Mica, Zeal Red Mica or Aluminium Silver Metallic, all of which come fitted with the contrasting Meteor Grey folding hardtop as standard.

The steering wheel also sees some customization; it is fitted with dark grey glossy spokes to match the dash and finished with unique grey stitching along with the handbrake and the seats. The pedals are also changed to alloys and at an extra fee MX-5 branded floor mats can also be fitted to the car.

The performance figures for the special edition MX-5 remain the same and no other mechanical changes have been made. The 1.8-litre model does 62mph in 9.9sec and goes on to a top speed of 123mph, while the top spec 2.0-litre model will get to 62mph in 7.9sec and reach 136mph. Both cars return 39.8mpg and 36.2mpg respectively.

The Sport Graphite is now on sale with 0 percent interest option that Mazda is currently allowing customers to avail.
