Manufactured at Mazda's Hiroshima plant, the MX-5 debuted in 1989 at the Chicago Auto Show and was conceived and executed under a tightly focused design credo, Jinba Ittai, meaning ‘oneness of horse and rider’. Widely noted for its small, light, technologically modern, dynamically balanced, and minimally complex design, the MX-5 has frequently been called a spiritual successor to 1950s and '60s Italian and British roadster sports cars, with the Lotus Elan used as a design benchmark. As the best-selling two-seat convertible sports car in history, the MX-5 has been marketed globally, with production exceeding one million, as of early 2016.

The Jasper Conran MX-5 was a UK special edition for the year 2000. Created in collaboration with the British fashion designer Jasper Conran, the limited edition cars were based on a standard 1.8iS with a limited-slip differential. There were two specifications available, 400 in Brilliant Black with a Black leather interior, and 100 painted in the unique Platinum Silver with a Red leather interior. Wilton carpets are featured throughout and high-quality Connolly leather for the seats, door panels, and tonneau cover. The interior also features several aluminium silver accents around the air vents, instruments, door handles, and centre console. The three-spoke Nardi steering wheel was given new Silver trim, and a Silver gearknob and handbrake handle were also added. The standard Mazda stereo was upgraded to a Sony CD MiniDisc unit and the interior also gets a numbered badge, with the exterior finished with unique design 15" BBS alloy wheels and an exhaust tailpipe trim.

Manufactured in 2001, the MX-5 offered was supplied new via JCT600 Mazda of Leeds, being registered new on the 17th of March that year. Finished in the Brilliant Black paintwork with the Black Connolly leather interior upholstery and hood, the Mazda is fitted with the 1840cc straight-four engine allied to the five-speed manual transmission. In single lady ownership from new, the Jasper Conran has covered a mere 36,550 miles from new at the time of consignment. Accompanied for sale by a history file that contains the owner's manual and stamped service book which illustrates two stamps, there are a further eight service invoices present in the history file. A collection of other invoices is also incorporated in the document file, along with a selection of previous MOTs, a current V5C document, and a no advisory MOT certificate until November 2023.
