Rather than bake a cake, however, Mazda has chose to celebrate as it has done for numerous roadster's milestones before: by building a limited-edition anniversary version.

So, what else do you get with this special model, besides an awesome shade of Racing Orange paint? Now based on a version of the RX-8's platform, the MX-5 Mk3 looked much smarter than its predecessor and came with 1.8 or 2.0-litre engines. The brake calipers and interior vent louvers also get a coating of Racing Orange paint. The bespoke Alcantara RECARO racing seats also sport piping in a similar orange as well. Those brakes are set behind a unique set of dark-finish, 17-inch Rays wheels, and cars equipped with a manual transmission get Bilstein dampers for improved handling. "Yellow is good match for sports cars, but rather than simply reusing this color, this new orange evokes sunrise and anticipation to celebrate the future of MX-5".

As for the powertrain, it goes largely untouched.

Even if there isn't more power, there's some choice upgrades to bump up the smiles per mile.

As far as other options, there aren't many. Since the 30th Anniversary uses the Grand Touring spec auto as a base, it already comes with a decent kit. If you want the soft top, it'll be $34,995, and if you want the RF, you're looking at $37,595. Or you can (probably) find one of the 25th Anniversary editions on the used market. The auto was to be a very limited edition run with only 3,000 units offered globally. Of those only 500 will make it stateside while 600 head to the UK.

Pricing for the 30th Anniversary does command a bit of a premium too. Mazda offered this model in four basic configurations: soft top with automatic transmission, retractable fastback with automatic transmission, soft top with manual transmission and retractable fastback with manual transmission.
