Mazda is celebrating three decades of the Miata at the Chicago Auto Show, where the car first debuted back in 1989, with the 2019 Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition. Not with a hardcore racing setup, nor a limited run of hardtop coupe models, or anything wild like that. Just this orange color.

The color is called Racing Orange and bespoke to this special edition, and it’s part of the anniversary package that also includes orange brake calipers (Brembo in the front, Nissin in the back), orange-accented Recaro seats, dashboard, shifter, and door trims, 17-inch Rays aluminum wheels, a mechanical limited-slip differential that’s exclusive to cars with a manual transmission, a nine-speaker Bose audio system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and a 30th anniversary badge.

Should have been green with tan interior.

Orange was not a factory color in 1989 and green/tan NA is peak Miata.
