The new Mazda MX-5 30th Anniversary Edition has gone on sale in the UK, with prices starting from £28,095 for the latest limited number version of the firm's popular sports car.

The UK, one of the world’s biggest MX-5 markets, will receive 550 cars of the 3,000 global allocation. 370 will be soft top convertibles and, with 180 hard-top RF models. Distinguishable by its black, dual-tone roof, the retractable Fastback ‘RF’ is priced from £29,895. First deliveries of both versions will take place this summer.

• Mazda MX-5 25th Anniversary Edition review

The MX-5 Anniversary Edition is finished in an exclusive ‘Racing orange’ paint colour and features forged aluminium wheels (commissioned by specialists RAYS), Brembo front brakes with calipers finished in orange, Bilstein dampers and a host of numbered “30th Anniversary Edition” badges.

Like most special edition MX-5s, the engine and gearbox remain untouched. This new model uses Mazda’s 181bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder Skyactiv-G engine, sending drive to the rear axle through a six-speed manual gearbox.

Inside, this limited edition MX-5 gets orange accents and Alcantara swathing around the cabin, dashboard and gear stick, Recaro seats, a nine-speaker Bose sound system and support for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.

Revealed earlier in the year at the Chicago Auto Show, this new model’s debut follows in the footsteps of the original MX-5, which was also revealed at the Chicago expo in 1989. Since launch, the MX-5 has sold more than one million units worldwide, over 130,000 of which have found UK homes.
