Mazda Motor Corporation announced the launch of the special edition Mazda Roadster Blaze Edition for the Japanese domestic market. Mazda’s world-renowned lightweight, open-top sports car has been newly outfitted with top-quality interior and exterior features. The Mazda Roadster Blaze Edition takes its name from related words such as “sparkle,” “blinding light,” and “fiery color,” and the images they evoke. It reflects these expressive words in its exterior, which has been enhanced by the addition of special parts, such as forged alloy wheels, which were produced by BBS Japan Co. Ltd. The Blaze Edition also features many chrome and clear parts and an exclusive deep wine-red body color, Radiant Ebony Mica. In contrast, a combination of sand beige and black leather is used extensively for the interior. Accented with various alloy parts to maximize the high-quality feel, the Blaze Edition is both sporty and elegant.
The manufacturer’s suggested retail prices (including consumption tax) for the soft-top models starts from 2,840,000 yen ($23,995) and for the Power Retractable Hard Top models from 3,040,000 ($25,685). The Blaze Edition soft-top model is available from all Mazda and Mazda Anfini dealers throughout Japan, with the Power Retractable Hard Top (PRHT) version following in April 2007.
