It's been 27 long years since Mazda began manufacturing one of the most iconic roadsters to ever take to the road. And all these years later, car lovers will flock to the Goodwood Festival of Speed to see the one-millionth Mazda MX-5 being put through its paces.
The landmark car was built in Hiroshima, Japan, earlier this year before being taken all of the way across the world to England for the famous annual celebration of power, performance and motorsport. The Goodwood Festival of Speed will take place between 23rd and 26th June at the Goodwood Estate near Chichester, West Sussex.
Fans of the car, which still holds the Guinness World Record for the best-selling two-seater sports car of all time, are expected to travel in their droves to the popular festival to celebrate the history of the MX-5.
Jeremy Thomson, Mazda Motors UK managing director, said: "The MX-5 sits at the heart of Mazda's brand and it embodies all that is great about our cars. Its character has strengthened the bond between Mazda and its customers for more than a quarter of a century.
"The production of the one-millionth MX-5 is a landmark and it's great that we can celebrate this with MX-5 owners and fans at the Goodwood Festival of Speed."
In order to thank fans for their continued support over the years, the Japanese manufacturer plans to send the one-millionth MX-5 to fan events all over the globe.
Visitors of the Goodwood Festival of Speed are in for another treat as the Mazda MX-5 Speedster and Spyder concept cars will also be joining the one-millionth car.
Fans will also be able to experience the all-new Mazda MX-5, which has been crowned World Car of the Year, take on the legendary Goodwood hillclimb on Thursday 23rd June.
Mazda certainly knows how to look after its fans!
