Mazda Roadster in Guinness World Records

Mazda Roadster has been certified as the world's top selling light weight open two-seater sports car model by the Guinness World Records of the U.K. The production of the Roadster was started in April 1989. Cumulative production is 565,779 units (as of the end of June 2000), and still growing. Roadster is known as MX-5 in Europe and Miata in North America.

The Roadster made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show in February 1989. Since then, the Roadster has gained strong support among users worldwide who love sports cars. There are a number of fan clubs in Japan and overseas run by Roadster enthusiasts.

The Guinness certification was obtained in May 2000 after applying to Guinness World Records last November when the cumulative production of 500,000 units was marked. "This certification means that the Roadster required only ten years after the start of production to "prove itself established as the world's top brand of sports cars," said Mark Fields, President of Mazda.

According to the Guinness World Record Limited, the keeper of the Records will now consider this record for entry into the world's biggest selling copyright book, Guinness World Records itself.

The Guinness Book of Records published by Guinness World Records Limited is a world-famous book that records feats accepted as the greatest in the world in various fields, including sports, culture and industry. Guinness published its first edition in 1955.
