Mazda has unveiled the MX-5 Roadster Coupe at the Auto Africa Motor Show. This unique sports car features a power-operated retractable hard top.

The MX-5 Roadster Coupe is a brand-new counterpart to the third-generation MX-5, which was launched last year. It has the same performance and styling as the soft-top model.

But at the same time, it comes with a unique power retractable hard top ? according to Mazda the first roadster yet with an electrically retractable hard top. Roof operation takes just 12 seconds once latch is released.

It has the same all-alloy 2-litre engine as the normal MX-5 producing 118 kW at 6 700 r/min and 188 Nm of torque at 5 000 r/min.

The price tag for the MX-5 roadster coupe is R269 990.
