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

Officially making its world debut at this year's Chicago Auto Show, the same venue where the original MX-5 debuted three decades ago, it's a limited special edition that comes with exclusive features inside and out. Maybe Mazda will surprise us with a Mazdaspeed Miata redux in the upcoming years.

Based on the 2.0-litre GT model, the MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition has 135kW of power and 205Nm of torque to its name. You could say that the special edition is for fans who feel like they have been friends with the Miata forever.

Mazda originally debuted the MX-5 Miata at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, so it's only fitting that the Japanese automaker has chosen to celebrate the 30th anniversary of that vehicle by making the world premiere of the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary in Chicago. Cars coming to the States might not have sequential numbers, and buyers don't get to choose their number. Every example will be painted Racing Orange and feature orange piping and orange interior louvers and accents, and they'll also be fitted with the Club trim's limited-slip differential, Bilstein shocks (manual only), and front shock tower mounts.

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 vehicle.

Live photos of the special Miata in Chicago are now in the gallery. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard on the 30th Anniversary model. The Miata already is one of our favorite cars on the market, and it was made even better for the 2019 model year with the addition of a new, higher-revving engine. Never mind. All 500 were spoken for just four hours after the order books opened. The soft top model starts at $34,995 for the six-speed manual and goes up to $37,995 for an automatic RF.
