Mazda Motorsports Reduces MX-5 Cup Hardtop Price
Track-Only Exclusive Part Reduced to $3,085

IRVINE, Calif. (April 20, 2017) – Mazda Motorsports announced an adjustment in the price for the track-only, removable MX-5 Cup hardtop. The hardtop will retail for $3,085.00, reduced from the originally announced price of $4,420.00

“Thanks to hard work by our engineers and vendors, we are happy to announce a reduced price for the MX-5 Cup’s available hardtop, providing customers an even greater value for what is already one of the best bangs for the buck in motorsports today,” said David Cook, business development manager, Mazda Motorsports. “We want to see as many Mazdas on racetracks in as many series possible, so this will undoubtedly help. For customers who have already ordered their top at the original price, we will provide them back the difference.”

Already, more Mazda vehicles are raced on any given weekend than any other make in the U.S., from Spec Miata series and autocross to the Global MX-5 Cup racecars and KODO Design-inspired RT24-P DPi prototypes campaigned in endurance racing. Mazda’s goal is to be a trusted and chosen motorsports partner for all levels of motorsports, from amateurs to elite professional drivers.

Orders for the new motorsports hardtop started last month and are being accepted exclusively through Mazda Motorsports. Deliveries will begin later this month.
