It features an icy blue paint finish,16-inch silver alloy wheels, a silver windscreen surround, silver wing mirrors and silver headrest hoops which give the Arctic model a distinctive look.

All versions will also have a numbered limited edition badge on the dashboard.
It is the second MX-5 to wear the Arctic badge which was last used on the second-generation MX-5 in 2005.

We’ve had a long history of producing distinctive limited edition MX-5s that allow customers to drive a sports car with stand-out looks and enhanced standard equipment.
“The new MX-5 Arctic’s exclusive looks and great value mean it’s sure to be a popular choice when it arrives in dealerships early next year.”
