683 of these. Now that’s a parade.

Picture 683 Mazda MX-5 Miatas from all over Europe gathered in one space. This image was recently a reality on June 15, 2013, creating the largest parade of Mazda vehicles ever. This parade of popular sports cars took place in the Netherlands and beat the previous record of 459 Mazdas set in Germany about three years ago. The parade was led by a third-generation MX-5 race car driven by Dutch television spokesman, Allard Kalaff, while Mazda’s European boss, Jeff Guyton, rode shotgun. We proudly sell the stunning MX-5 Miata here at Biggers Mazda in Elgin, and thought this parade was an event for the ages.

A Celebration to Remember 

1,400 parade participants enjoyed an exciting afternoon together, sharing a good meal and viewing demonstrations by racing teams that use the Mazda Miata. As a thank you to the Mazda fans who took part in this record-breaking event, free inspection tips for maintaining Mazda vehicles were presented to the crowd. In order to celebrate this new Guinness World Record, 250 Mazda MX-5 Miatas came together for a drive-in movie. The owners of the vehicles voted on the movies they were interested in watching by blowing their horns. The crowd blew the loudest for the movie Arbitrage starring Richard Gere and watched this winning selection on an outdoor movie screen throughout the evening.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata

The Mazda Mx-5 Miata is a fun two-seat convertible with a 2-liter, 4-cylinder 167 hp engine. The Sport, Club, and Grand Touring are three trims that are available to meet a variety of lifestyle and budget preferences. The Miata is a safe convertible with an efficient fuel economy of 28 mpg highway that is ideal for the daily commute. It also has a roomier cabin than most convertibles, making it a sleek yet comfortable vehicle option.  If you’re looking for a car that is simply a blast to drive, the Mazda MX-5 Miata will exceed your every expectation!
