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.

This year, the beloved Mazda MX-5 Miata turns 30, and to mark the Japanese roadster's birthday Mazda has introduced the 2019 MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition. A special badge with the production number keeps track of which is which, and each auto will come, too, with Rays ZE40 RS30 forged aluminum wheels and Recaro seats. Maybe Mazda will surprise us with a Mazdaspeed Miata redux in the upcoming years. "It belongs to the fans around the world who have supported the development of the model".

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 vehicle, 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. 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.

Instead, the remake was overseen by writer Tyler Burton Smith and Norwegian director Lars Klevberg. Though we don't get a good look at the titular doll, we do see some of his handiwork at play.

Live photos of the special Miata in Chicago are now in the gallery.

Mazda will offer the 30th Anniversary model in four flavors: soft top with automatic transmission, retractable fastback with automatic transmission, soft top with manual transmission, and retractable fastback with manual transmission.

The 30th Anniversary package will be available on both the standard roadster and the Miata RF. Just 3000 of the 30th Anniversary Miata will be sold worldwide, with only 500 coming to the United States. The order books open today, with prospective owners able to place their order on a special website with a deposit of $500.
