At this year’s Chicago Auto Show, Mazda celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Miata with a 30th Anniversary Edition model. The Japanese automaker is only making 3,000 30th Anniversary Edition Mazda Miata models with only 500 reaching the U.S. Except Mazda has already sold out of the model in less than a day since announcing the special edition model. It’s no surprise the Miata would sell so quickly.

Those who were able to place an order online for the special Miata get a host of unique upgrades over the standard roadster. The most striking upgrade is the Racing Orange exterior paint color. Other enhancements include ray forged aluminum wheels, Recaro seats, Brembo from brake calipers (in orange), Nissin rear brake calipers (in orange), a nine-speaker Bose sound system, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto in select markets.

Orange is a major theme with the 30th Anniversary Mazda Miata, which is included in the seat accents, door trim, dashboard, and shift lever. Manual-transmission models receive Bilstein dampers. The powertrain remains unchanged. Power comes from a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine making 181 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. A six-speed automatic gearbox is also available.

The 3,000-unit run includes both the hardtop and soft top models. The Mazda Miata 30th Anniversary Edition should begin arriving at dealerships this June.
