This NB-generation Miata might not look like much, but it's actually rarest special edition MX-5 ever built. It's one of just 50 Club Sport models, and one of 25 fitted with a soft top. And it's for sale.

The Club Sport was introduced for the 2003 model year with some encouragement from the SCCA. Basically, they were Miatas with no options, and some standard features removed to save weight and complexity. There was no power steering, no air conditioning, no stereo, and no windblocker. Bilstein suspension was standard, as was a limited-slip differential. There were only two colors available: Pure White or Classic Red. Half of the cars got a normal folding soft top, while the other half got a removable hard top, with the soft top removed from the factory. This car is one of the former.

When the Club Sport was new, it carried an MSRP of just $19,995 thanks to the lack of features—around $2500 less than a normal NB at the time. Mazda forced dealers to sell the car at sticker, meaning they couldn't tack on any "market adjustment" charges because of its rarity.

Because the Club Sport was designed to be turned into a race car, it's likely many of them have been. This one seems to have been spared that fate, sporting minimal modifications. Someone seems to have installed a factory radio at some point, as well as a roll bar—both easy to take out if you're a real purist.

And with only 92,000 miles on the clock, this Club Sport barely looks broken-in. EuroMotors LLC, a dealership in Lee, Massachusetts, is asking $7500 right now for the car on its website. The Club Sport is the rarest and most interesting Miata ever made, with less examples built than McLaren F1s or Pagani Zondas. Though it may not look much different than your average NB, it's special. And that's worth something.
