  • 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary Edition

The gorgeous paint colour for this limited run MX-5 is known as Racing Orange, and it's exclusive to the Anniversary Edition.

"After 30 years and with more than 1 million examples sold, Mazda feels that the MX-5 is no longer its own creation", Mazda says in a statement.

Apart from special colors and wheels, MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition will also feature orange Brembo brake calipers up front and matching Nissin brake calipers at the rear. The 17-inch forged Rays wheels are unique, too, inspired by the wheels on the MX-5 Cup race vehicle and painted gunmetal gray.

It's painted in a distinct Racing Orange hue which Mazda claims "evoke the breaking dawn of an exciting day". 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.

Arguably the most beloved drop-top in the history of the automobile, the Mazda MX-5 comes full circle to celebrate its 30 anniversary at the Chicago Auto Show.

The G7 also supports Motorola's 15W TurboPower charging spec, which promises nine hours of battery life from a 15-minute charge. The standard Moto G7 features a 6.24-inch Full HD+ display with a waterdrop-style notch and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection.

Amazingly, it's 30 years since the MX-5 was launched in 1989, and Mazda weren't going to let that pass without an anniversary model.

Inside, there are Recaro seats with orange accents along with Alcantara on the door trim and instrument panel.

Besides giving it a unique orange paintjob, as well as a cool set of alloy wheels, Mazda was also busy making tweaks on the chassis and suspension. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are standard here.

Just 3,000 cars will be produced globally, and production includes both the convertible and RF models.

Mazda say they are going to produce 3,000 30th anniversary models, but as the United Kingdom is one of the world's biggest MX-5 markets 20 per cent of those will be heading to Blighty - 400 MX-5 Convertibles and 200 RF models.
