The Chicago motor show has hosted the reveal of the 2019 Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition.
The original MX-5 was revealed at the same show way back in February 1989.
Differentiating the MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition is the Racing Orange exterior paint which was developed in-house, Mazda says the colour “evokes the breaking dawn of an exciting new day.”
Other features include RAYS forged alloys wheels (RAYS ZE40 RS30) developed exclusively for the MX-5, Bilstein dampers, Brembo front brake calipers and Nissin calipers at the rear.
In keeping with the exterior, Orange highlights are found on the vent surrounds, seats, steering wheel, door trims, dashboard, gear shifter and the parking brake lever.
The interior has been fitted out with Recaro seats and Alcantara on the door cards, dashboard and the centre of the seats.
Being based on the 2.0-litre GT variant, the MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition will pack 135kW of power and 205Nm of torque.
Production will be limited to 3000 units worldwide, including both soft-top and retractable hardtop models. Australia will receive an allocation of just 30 examples, all of which will be soft-top models.
Australian pricing is yet to be confirmed. Stay tuned!
