Mazda's 30th Anniversary MX-5 comes in new Racing Orange

The debut took place on Thursday at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show, which was fitting considering it was at the same show back in 1989 that the original NA-generation was first shown to the world.

The 30th Anniversary Edition MX-5 Miata wears a special shade of Racing Orange paint, which Mazda says is an evolution of the yellow hue that adorned the original '89 Club Racer show auto.

Aptly named the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition, the vehicle features one of the only things that Miata fans across the world have been clamoring for since the introduction of the current ND generation: more color. It comes with unique Rays ZE40 RS30 forged aluminum wheels, orange brake calipers and a 30th Anniversary badge that features the car's serial number.

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.

The unique hue is also used for the car's brake calipers, and throughout the interior, including the stitching, seat piping, vent surrounds, and door trim.

Available for both the soft-top and RF variants, the 30th Anniversary package is clad in exclusive Racing Orange exterior paint that pays homage to the yellow MX-5 Club Racer unveiled 30 years ago.

Mazda made no mechanical changes to the Miata for this special edition, and that's fine with us. A six-speed manual gearbox is standard, as are Bilstein dampers, strut-brace and limited slip differential.

Previewed last month, Mazda has now shown in full the 30th Anniversary Edition at the Chicago show. Just 3000 of the 30th Anniversary Miata will be sold worldwide, with only 500 coming to the United States. Mazda offered this model in four basic configurations: soft top with automatic transmission, retractable fastback with automatic transmission, soft top with manual transmission and retractable fastback with manual transmission.
