Mazda - 750 out of 1,000 special MX-5 Miata will be sold in UK

Mazda UK today unveiled the fact that they have secured 750 out of 1,000 cars of the 25th anniversary MX-5 Miata for their customers in the UK.

Last month, we reported about the special edition car made to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their famous MX-5 Miata (known as Roadster in Japan).

Only 1,000 cars in total will be available all over the world.

Mazda allocated 100 cars for the American market and 25 cars for the Japanese market. In both of the countries, the special MX-5 Miata cars were sold out just a few minutes after the advanced order started.

Honda has developed a low-cost, automatic valet parking system which uses parking lot surveillance cameras to help park cars automatically.

In this demonstration, when a car is left in the drop-off area of a parking lot, it receives information about which spaces are available, then drives itself to an empty space and parks. This system can automatically park multiple cars efficiently. Honda sees a lot of potential in a system such as this, especially if it is implemented in the large parking lots of suburban shopping centers.
