Mazda reveals striking MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition


Mazda has pulled the covers off its celebration of three decades of the MX-5, or Miata Roadster, in the form of the 2019 Mazda MX-5 30 Anniversary Edition.

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.

February in Chicago isn't normally what you'd call convertible season, but on a cold and blustery morning nearly 30 years ago to the day, Mazda took ragtop fans and, indeed, the rest of the auto industry, by surprise with the debut of the original Miata roadster. And to mark the occasion, the company has devised this, the MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition. We regret to inform you that Mazda appears to do these things in five-year increments, having created the 25th Anniversary Miata back in 2014, just 100 of which were allocated to the U.S. The upside, if any, is that you now have five years to save up for the 35th Anniversary Miata due in 2024.
