30 Years of the Mazda Roadster (English Edition)

The English edition of the “30 Years of the Mazda Roadster,” which was first published by Miki Shobo in December 2019 is now available. The content is the same as the Japanese version. This is a book that has been produced for overseas Mazda distributors, and will not be distributed to general bookstores throughout Japan, making it a rare collector’s item. MZRacing produced the English version from the outset, taking charge of all editing work, including the English translation itself. The entirety of the English translation was carried out by native English speakers living in Japan who have extensive experience in the automotive industry. It makes for a perfect gift for overseas friends.


This limited edition book outlines the evolutionary process that led to the four generations of Mazda Roadster / MX-5, while collating information on the transition and development of limited-edition vehicles, testimonies from engineers and related parties, and events. The answer to why the roadster has long been supported by owners and fans is contained within this book. This book acts as a standalone, comprehensive historical record for all roadster owners and Mazda fans. All-color, hardcover, 240-pages.
