Just days ago, Mazda announced it was taking orders on its all-new 2017 Mazda MX-5 RF Launch Edition, with production limited to 1,000 units this year. After the first 500 MX-5s were made available for pre-order to loyal Mazda owners, the remaining units were offered up to the general public. Demand for the sporty convertible was strong and immediate, so much so that all had been snatched up within 13 hours of being made available.
Mazda noted that two out of three buyers (67%) opted for the manual transmission in their MX-5 RF. The company also announced that all 1,000 buyers of the car will receive an exclusive Tourneau luxury watch as an added gift.
As previously reported, production on the MX-5 began last week, with the first completed units expected to be delivered to lucky buyers in early 2017.
