Duran Duran and the MX-5 Miata both made their world debuts in the 1980s and captured the hearts and imagination of an entire generation,” said Mazda’s Russell Wager in a release. “In 25 years, both the car and the band have evolved while staying true to their roots.  It is this combination of authenticity and endurance that makes the pairing of the MX-5 and Duran Duran so appropriate for this reveal.”
