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

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

What can only be described as an online stampede for the 30th Anniversary Edition took place shortly after Mazda started accepting orders following the car's debut at the Chicago Auto Show this week. The slightly less bad news? There may be 3,000 of these Miatas for worldwide consumption, but only 500 are reserved for the US. But these things work like waiting lists during the college application process, so don't get too emotionally invested in it.

How will you be able to spot the 30th Anniversary Miata on the street once they are delivered to buyers? That's right, the MX-5 (Miata if you live in some parts of the world) has hit the big three-oh.

Previewed last month, Mazda has now shown in full the 30th Anniversary Edition at the Chicago show.

The legendary, oh-so-loveable MX-5 has now turned 30. GT models replace 16-inch.

In addition to Racing Orange, the MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition features forged aluminium Rays wheels developed exclusively for the MX-5 in cooperation with Rays Co Ltd. and a 30th-anniversary badge displaying the model's serial 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. The only available option is a six-speed automatic transmission, replacing the six-speed manual, and adds $500 the roadster's price, or $400 to the RF.

The vehicle had some unique options and features that made it so attractive to buyers.

Hard to believe, but it's been 30 years since the original Mazda Miata flipped up its headlights and said hello to the world.

If you're keen on ordering one of these, you'll need to act fast.

Each auto will be individually numbered, and reservation holders will be able to select their number out of 3,000, unless it's already taken.
