Mazda adds new features to RX-8


Mazda Motor Corp on Monday launched a revamped four-door, four-seat rotary-powered Mazda RX-8 sports car for the Japanese market.

Standard equipment across the entire RX-8 range has been updated with popular features that provide added comfort and convenience. The updates include rain-sensing windshield wipers and Mazda’s auto-light system (which switches the headlights on automatically according to ambient light conditions). Two additional exterior body colors, silver and gray, reflect the RX-8’s high quality and accentuate its exceptional sports car styling.

Retail prices range from 2.63 million yen to 3.180 million yen.

Foreigners can get a grant from the government for an ejector seat, if they promise not to come back.

A great car propelled with a great engine. I drove rotary engine cars in the 1970s. Unfortunately the rotary engine still is a bit too thirsty. This 1.3 l wankel uses 20% more gas than my 3.0 l V6. For lovers of a real sports car that however should not be a barrier. It wasn't for me in the 70s when gas was cheap! Here is photo of my old R100:

Like most of the RX series, part aren't cheap. I remember my dad telling a guy who had an RX-7, an exhaust system cost several hundred pounds more than a regular one. The guy fell over aghast at the price.
