MX5 MK3 Luggage Rack

MX5 MK3 Luggage Rack :

Revo-Rack Black £229.95 / $319 / 265€

Revo-Rack PA £269.95 / $385 / 320€

Revo-Rack is a completely new type of MX5 MK3 Luggage Rack that eliminates the risk of paint damage, caused by steel clamps or straps on the boot/trunk lid edge.

With the Revo-Rack car boot rack no metal touches your MX5's boot lid only soft rubber vacuum cups these use the pressure of the atmosphere to secure the rack to your Mazda's boot or trunk. We manufacture the Revo-Rack ourselves and offer two finishes powder coated black or hand polished and anodised. Both racks are made from the same T5 aluminium and magnesium 25mm tube.

The rack fits both the soft top and folding hard top MK3 and sits 7.5cm off the boot lid. Please read what our customers think of Revo-Rack here

Revo-Rack has been independently tested by TUV Italy part of the global TUV testing and certification business. The rack went through speed, braking and force tests, to ISO 11154:2006 the international standard for car roof bars and the European Directive for general safety 2002/95/CE. Revo-Rack passed all these tests : It won't fly off.

The Rack Frame :

This MX5 MK3 luggage rack is manufactured from 25mm/ 1" 6063-T5 tubing this is an aluminium and magnesium alloy ( it will never rust ) As a result the rack frame weighs only 1.672kg / 3.6lb  The cross bars are machine welded in place to ensure consistency, the rack is powder coated black. The rack measures 900x420mm  /  36"x17"

The Supports :

The rack is secured to your MX5's boot/trunk lid using three 120mm vacuum cups,  rated by the manufacturer as capable of holding an 18kg/40lb load each.

Vacuum cups employ the force of atmospheric pressure to grip a surface: When a vacuum exists between the cup and the surface on which it is attached, the weight of Earth's atmosphere holds the cup in place with incredible force. Unlike suction cups that produce a vacuum as they pull away from the surface, Revo-Racks vacuum cups use a hand-actuated pump to efficiently remove air from between the rubber pad and the attaching surface thus creating a much more reliable hold. Because the full face of the pad is brought into contact with the surface, distortion is reduced, allowing the cup to be used with very little risk of damage.

The Revo-Racks vacuum cup's pump feature a plunger with a red line, which serves as a vacuum indicator. Introduced in the1960's, this safety device is still recognized as one of the most reliable warning systems available. A few strokes of the plunger evacuate the vacuum pad, causing it to seal securely to the attaching surface. When the cup is attached completely, the plunger stops moving and the red line is hidden within the pump. A visible red line indicates if air has leaked back into the pad, making vacuum insufficient to use the cup. However, if the red line becomes visible while the cup is in use, a check valve allows the user to re pump the cup without losing the remaining vacuum.

Lifting on the release tab near the edge of the pad allows air to refill the evacuated space, so that the vacuum cup detaches completely. The racks sits 7.5cm / 3" off the boot/trunk lid

Soft rubber cannot chip scratch or mark paintwork

Optional third brake light integrated into a luggage strap, required on the MK3/NC as any rack will obscure the third brake light. £9.95 / 12€ or purchase a spacer kit to raise the rack 2.5cm so the light can still be seen under the rack.

We have just completed our second long road trip with the Revo-Rack on the MX-5. This time we did 3,800km, mostly at high freeway speeds, but also plenty of curvy roads, and the rack held fast in all the wind blast and lots of lateral forces. Top up or top down, there was never a worry with the rack and luggage.

We couldn’t be happier with our purchase.

Check out this review of the Revo-Rack on a customers blog.


Huge shoutout to the people across the pond at Revo-Rack. They didn’t pay me or anything to endorse them, but the rack is honestly the best possible solution for adding storage capacity to the world’s favorite roadster. It left no marks and I am sure it would work well on other vehicles too. At around $300 the rack seemed expensive at first, but it worked flawlessly and even kept all that camping gear rock steady into triple digit speeds at one point. Plus it’s something that I’ll continue to use in the future.

Dear Anthony,

We are back in Holland after a trip of nearly 5000 KMS through France and Spain....You can see how we packed.
As you can see I used straps for extra safety. The rack was doing very well only one time I had to pump one cup extra.
