MAZDA is releasing a special edition MX-5 for sale in February and only 400 are being offered for sale in the UK.

It's called the MX-5 Arctic, will set you back £20,995, and Mazda says it aims to brighten up winter days with its exclusive blue metallic paintwork and bright silver design cues.

Based on the 1.5-litre 131bhp SE-L Nav, the MX-5 Arctic's silver details are pitched to contrast against an icy blue paint finish.

It also comes with 16-inch silver alloy wheels, a silver windscreen surround, silver wing mirrors and silver headrest hoops which give the Arctic a distinctive look

The interior of the Arctic special edition features silver cup holder rings and chrome scuff plates, while the upgraded equipment list includes heated leather seats, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers and rear parking sensors.

All versions will also feature 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.

Jeremy Thomson, managing director of Mazda Motors UK, said: "We are delighted to offer another special version of the award-winning MX-5 convertible. 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."
