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.
