Mazda is probably wishing now that they had planned a more generous run of 30th Anniversary Edition Mazda MX-5 Miatas, because it took four hours for all 500 examples allocated to the U.S.to find homes, out of a global run of 3,000 cars.
Mazda originally debuted the MX-5 Miata at the 1989 Chicago Auto Show, so it's only fitting that the Japanese automaker has chosen to celebrate the 30th anniversary of that vehicle by making the world premiere of the MX-5 Miata 30th Anniversary in Chicago.
You can have in both the regular soft-top body and the newer RF retractable hard-top version, both of which showed Racing Orange paint at the Chicago Auto Show. According to Mazda, it's a throwback to the 1989 MX-5 Miata Club Racer. For us, the other primary way in which the 30th Anniversary differs from a regular model is the Recaro bucket seats with orange piping and Alcantara. Complimenting this is a set of RAYS ZE40 RS30 forged alloy wheels. A Bose sound system is also along for the ride, and the Mazda Connect infotainment system has both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto standard.
