This years marks Mazda’s 100th birthday and to celebrate the occasion, Mazda has announced a new lineup of special edition models that are inspired by Mazda’s first passenger vehicle, the 1960 R360 coupe.
“Each vehicle has been developed with an aspiration to look ahead, while also remembering and respecting the rich Japanese heritage that has guided the brand.”
The 100th Anniversary Special Edition models will be based on the upper trim levels and take design cues from the 1960 R360 Coupe, which had a two-tone scheme of a white body contrasted with a colored roof and matching interior hue.
Each special edition model is painted in Snowflake White Pearl Mica with red accents. The front fender will also get a “100 Years 1920 – 2020” badge and the wheel center caps feature the 100th Anniversary Special Logo in red and black. Inside there are red leather seats and red carpet, while the headrests feature a 100th Anniversary Special Logo.
Lastly the 100th Anniversary Special Edition models feature a unique logo that celebrates Mazda’s past, present and future.
Mazda hasn’t announced the US availability of the 100th Anniversary Special Edition models, due to the coronavirus pandemic.
