The SEAT Ibiza is celebrating its 30th Anniversary this year, and they have brought out a special 30th Anniversary edition (pictured) to celebrate this.
The first ever Ibiza came off the production lines on the 27th April, 1984 and this car is the one that changed the fortunes of the Spanish automobile manufacturing company. This first Ibiza was then taken on to the Paris Motor Show and the rest is history.
The Ibiza is SEAT's best selling car ever and this stylish supermini car has sold over 5 million units since its introduction. Like all SEAT vehicles, the model name is taken from a Spanish place, and this model is named after the Spanish holiday island Ibiza.
SEAT had some help developing the first version from Giorgetto Giugiaro's Italian design company Italdesign, Porsche and the coach building company Karmann. We have a full review for the Ibiza which you can view by clicking here.
We are currently in the fourth generation version (2008-present) and there have been several changes to the vehicle since its introduction. The current version is very sporty looking and was designed by the Belgian designer Luc Donckerwolke.
The 30th anniversary edition is expected to be released in June this year but SEAT have yet to provide any specifications for this special edition model. As can be seen from the image above, it is available in a limited edition exterior colour and it will have a commemorative badge too.
