Try a test drive - awesome car - trying to convince the Mrs to swap her MX-5 for one. That engine is so linear, I though well this isn't a patch on my Golf until I realised that I was well into 3 figures on the local private test track - ahhhhm.
The other thing that was a laugh is that the sales guy didn't realise that it has a change up chime, as we are valued customers (Kate has had a number of Mazdas from the group in the past)we were allowed out to play on our own [}] I found the chime in 2nd joining the M27.
Yeah I heard it goes all the way to 9000 revs. Id like to get one to trash for a while, the MX-5 is a nice roadster but not really a mans car. I saw some pics of the RX-7 it looks real nice anyone know when that's out?
My mate got one of these last thrusday...he took me for a spin in it last night....Very odd is all i can say. The engine makes a strange noise (sounds like it battery powered), it seems to handle very well and corners very flat with minimal body roll. The interior is nice enough, but not to my style.
Heard somewhere that the RX8 is actually 2 engine glued togather. 2 x 650cc each giving out 115 bhp. That is just mad. Also a 1 year old one will sell for the same price as a brand new one because of the waiting list.
