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.
Distinguishing the 30th Anniversary MX-5 from any other MX-5 is the Racing Orange paint job and a set of Rays alloys, orange brake calipers, Brembo brakes and some 30th Anniversary badging.
The vehicle rides on specially-designed black RAYS ZE40 RS30 forged alloy wheels and Bilstein dampers. To celebrate the milestone, Mazda makes a fitting return to the same venue at the Windy City with a commemorative model, aptly named the MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition. The 30th Anniversary Edition model is based on the sporty Club trim level (specifically, the Club with the BBS/Brembo/Recaro package), which adds performance features such as Bilstein dampers and a limited-slip diff.
The much-anticipated 30th Anniversary version of the delightful Mazda MX-5 Miata is here. There's also a special build number plaque and some orange highlights inside and out.

Trump Says No Meeting With China's Xi Scheduled 'Yet'
The ASA says it's the only way US soybean producers can regain commercial access to China, their most significant overseas market. Without one, the U.S. will increase the tariffs on US$200 billion of Chinese goods to 25 per cent from the current 10 per cent.
As previously teased, the special MX-5 gets a bright Racing Orange finish, and gets shod with bespoke forged aluminium Rays wheels. The 30th Anniversary Edition also features Apple Carplay and Android Auto as standard. Mazda is limiting the edition to just 3,000 units.
Like all 2019 Miata's, the 30th Anniversary Edition relies on a 181-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine for motivation. Pricing starts at $34,995 for a stick-shift soft-top, while the RF starts at $37,595. Later on, Mazda realised the Miata name still had brand resonance, so the company compromised and it became the MX-5 Miata in North America, a name it carries to this day.
While never a major seller, the pint-sized two-seater also known as the MX-5 captured the hearts - and checkbooks - of those who wanted something that put the emphasis on pure driving fun, inspiring a wave of imitations from Mazda's Japanese, German and USA rivals.
