We knew it was coming but we didn't expect the Mazda MX-5 Miata Special Edition's to be available in Racing Orange.
The Mazda MX-5 certainly has a history to be celebrated. The little 2-door sports car has charmed the pants off of many and, to say thank you, Mazda is releasing the Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition.
The launch vehicle is painted in Racing Orange, which will only be available for the Anniversary Edition, with an abundance of orange trim such as orange piping and louvres inside. There will also be a raft of changes under the skin, with the limited-slip differential from the Club trim, front shock tower mounts, and Bilstein shocks for the manual model.
To make the MX-5 30th Anniversary model even more special, there are unique Rays ZE40 RS30 forged alloys on each corner with orange brake callipers peeking through. The convertible vehicles will possess black cloth tops, while the body colour will find its way to the RF retractable hardtop's roof.
All vehicles receive a 30th Anniversary badge highlighting the car's serial number.
Numbers will be limited to three-thousand globally, with 500 of the Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary editions landing in the U.S. The Japanese firm is now accepting registrations on their website for those interested in owning one.
Here's a quick history lesson for you wondering why the Racing Orange; It represents "sunrise and anticipation," says Masahiro Moro, Mazda's North America chief, who also said it nods back to the racing version of the Miata of three decades ago.
Price is set to start from $35,915 for the manual 2019 Mazda Miata 30th Anniversary edition with Alcantara-lined Recaro seats and those Bilsteins included.
