Seat has announced the launch of a special anniversary edition of its famous city car, slated to roll onto European dealerships in June. The new model will commemorate the 30th birthday of the most exported Spanish car of all time.

April 27, 1984 was the date when the first Seat Ibiza was driven out of the factory, before going on display at the Paris Motor Show shortly thereafter. A mainstay in the Spanish car maker's catalog, the Seat Ibiza has been sold over 5 million times during its three decades of existence.
The latest iteration of the Ibiza, introduced in 2008, was conceived by Belgian designer Luc Donckerwolke and marks the debut of a more sporty line.
For the time being, the manufacturer has not provided specifications or other details on its special 30th anniversary edition. A few images have been released, however, showing a new exclusive exterior color and a commemorative badge. This special edition is expected to go on sale in June.
