Mazda celebrates 30 years of MX-5 with Anniversary Edition

Orange you sad Mazda’s MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition is sold out

Therefore with 1989 marking its 30th anniversary, Mazda was hardly going to let the MX-5's big 3-0 pass unnoticed.

In addition to the Vitamin C color scheme, the 30th Anniversary Edition gets a set of 17-inch Rays ZE40 forged aluminum wheels that were specially developed for the Miata and are based on the wheels found on the MX-5 Cup race auto.

After 30 years and more than 1 million units sold, Mazda feels that the MX-5 has grown into more than simply Mazda's creation.

Launched as both a tribute to these MX-5 fans and as a mark of the high hopes the firm has for the future of its sports auto, the 30th Anniversary Edition is exclusively offered in the newly developed Racing Orange body paint, a strikingly vivid colour that marks out this special MX-5. There's also Alcantara trim on the seats, the door cards, and the instrument cluster.

Mazda made no mechanical changes to the Miata for this special edition, and that's fine with us. The limited edition Miata also welcomes Apple CarPlay and Android Auto into the model's fold. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, as are Bilstein dampers, strut-brace and limited slip differential.

Want one? You'll have to move fast, as only 3000 cars are available worldwide.

How will you be able to spot the 30th Anniversary Miata on the street once they are delivered to buyers? That makes the softtop just $960 more than a standard Club with the BBS/Brembo/Recaro package, while the RF is only $10 more than a regular Club with the package. The only options are whether you get a retractable top or soft top model and if you choose manual or automatic transmission. Only 500 examples were coming to the States, and all 500 of the cars were snapped up, and reservations closed in four hours. The order books open today, with prospective owners able to place their order on a special website with a deposit of $500.
