Mazda MX-5 (Miata) 30th Anniversary Edition arrived in Australia, and promptly sold out. The Racing Orange paintwork stands out in the crowd. In fact, it screams “look at me ploise Kimmoi”.

Of the 3,000 MX 5 (Miata), there are a mere 30 in Australia. They were all sold within hours of being announced on the Mazda website. If only all car makers could have such success.

10 cars went to Victorian buyers, 9 for NSW, 4 to QLD, 3 for the ACT, 2 for SA, and a lonely 1 for the Apple Isle.

MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition  is based on the manual 2.0L Roadster GT. It gets fancy Rays ZE40 RS30 forged alloy wheels, which were developed exclusively for the MX-5 in cahoots with Rays Co., Ltd. They were inspired by the MX-5 Global Cup Cars. Their dark, brooding colour is offset by crisp clean edges with laser etching spelling out “30th Anniversary” loudly and proudly around the rim.

Racing Orange painted Brembo front calipers and rear Nissin calipers can be seen through the wheels, with a special anniversary badge outside just in case you missed the bright orange paintwork..

The cabin is festooned with more ornage. There is orange piping and stitching on the Recaro seats, steering wheel, shift lever, dash and door. Plush Alcantra trim on the is also unique to the 30th edition.

Mazdas finally have standard Apple CarPlay/Android Auto throughout the range.

MX 5 drives with a perfectly balanced 50:50 weight distribution. Steering is sharp, with ride that is firm yet compliant. There is plenty of room in the boot for a couple of bags, but storage in the cabin is snug. There are a couple of cubby holes
