Mazda today unveiled the 30th Anniversary edition of the 2019 MX-5 Miata at the Chicago Auto show and it is an orange beauty.

The history of the announcement and location go way back. Back in 1989, Mazda unveiled the first MX-5 Miata at the Chicago Auto Show and it went on to become one of the most popular and iconic roadsters ever. To commemorate the 30-year celebration of that fateful announcement, Mazda returned to Chicago and unveiled a special 30th Anniversary edition of the 2019 MX-5 Miata.

Mazda will offer the special edition Miata in the soft top and RF models that is based on the the Grand Touring trim. That includes the brand new Skyactiv G 2.0-liter engine that produces 181 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque that is more than enough to rev up the light frame through twists and turns.

The most eye-catching feature of the 30th Anniversary Miata is its new paint job which comes in a vibrant Racing Orange finish that pays homage to the original yellow Miata that debuted in 1989, according to Mazda.

Other nice details the car will pack include Recaro sport seats wrapped in alcantara, 17-inch Dark Gunmetal wheels and an infotainment system that support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

Unfortunately, Mazda will only make 3,000 units, which will be marked by a badge. If you want to scoop one up, you better do it sooner rather than later.

The Mazda MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary will start at $34,995 for the manual soft top and go up to $37,995 for the automatic RF variant.
