I had no idea that Le Mans car existed, but I find myself wanting one.

Somewhere.
I always thought the Le Mans celebration model would have been more suited to an RX7 (or even a Cosmo) since, you know, rotary power.

I know someone in AUS with a NB Coupe. A yellow type A. There is a 2nd one here as well, a red one. Both were imported at the same time,

There is one rare model missing from that list. Australian only MX-5 SP from 2000/2001. Most powerfully Mazda backed MX-5 ever sold and there were only 101 of them built.

Nice article, although I hate to admit it I do have a soft spot for this car thanks to Gran Turismo but I don't drive it enough, I just wish we had some more versions of it but now I know about the Le Mans edition I guess I have to go livery hunting to see if it's in GT Sport as feel inclined to race
the Roadster GT League event again with it.

Fun fact, they didn't strip down the paint on the Le Mans editions before painting them. One guy came across a black NA 5 and whilst he was doing some body work on it sanded it down to come across the orange paint underneath.

Also, there's a 30k miles Coupe for sale at the moment - for £30,000!

Unsurprisingly that one (in Hong Kong?) has been on sale for a little while now. They're rare, but when I've seen them come up actually in Japan they're not £30k cars just yet.
