Remember the good old days of Mazdaspeed? For those who want to get their fill of performance parts without having to jump through multiple hoops of dealing with importation and all, Mazda Philippines has inked a deal with AutoExe, a Tokyo-based tuning company that specializes in Mazda vehicles.

AutoExe carries more than just flashy cosmetics, including actual performance-enhancing parts like brace sets, exhausts, suspension, and brake parts.

These were developed by former Mazda works driver Yojiro Terada, more famously known as “Japan’s Mr. Le Mans” for his numerous appearances in the endurance race, and Takao Kijima, known as “Mr. Roadster,” who has worked on the suspension and chassis work on the NB MX-5 and the FD RX-7.

Mazda Philippines is celebrating this occasion by introducing the limited-edition MX-5 AutoExe Edition. Only five units will be offered for P2,200,000 a pop.

It’s based on the MX-5 MT with a black soft top and black leather interior.

These will be fitted with P115,000 worth of AutoExe parts, such as the tower brace set, the member brace set, the MT shift knob, the carbon key cover, and a special AutoExe badge.

The official launch of AutoExe in the Philippines will take place before the end of the year, with more parts for other vehicles to be introduced. And as we were told, installing these parts through official Mazda dealerships will not void the manufacturer warranty, giving enthusiasts a bit more leeway to personalize their vehicles.
