All 500 of the 2019 Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition models allocated for the US have been allocated hours after the ordering system went online.
The 2019 Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition was unveiled last week at the 2019 Chicago Auto Show.
Only 3,000 anniversary models will be sold worldwide, and all have exclusive Racing Orange paint, which Mazda says is a homage to the yellow used on the MX-5 Miata Club Racer displayed next to the just-debuted first generation MX-5 at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show.
According to Mazda, “Rather than simply reusing this color, this new orange evokes sunrise and anticipation to celebrate the future of MX-5.”
All 30th Anniversary Edition models have black 18″ forged RAYS wheels, Brembo front brakes, Recaro seats, orange interior highlights, orange brake callipers, a 9-speaker Bose sound system, and a 2L I4 with 181hp (135kW) and 151 lb-ft (205Nm).
A 6-speed manual is standard, and a 6-speed auto is optional. The 30th Anniversary MX-5 is US$34,995 for the convertible soft top, while the RF folding hardtop is $37,595.
The reservation system remains open just in case any of the 500 buyers decides to opt out.
