Countdown to New Mazda RX-8

 

1st June, 2008

2008 Mazda RX-8 (overseas model)

The revitalised Mazda RX-8 range will be arriving in Australia next month. The new RX-8 employs a myriad of mechanical upgrades under its familiar body style, all designed to enhance the model which has been on the market since 2003. It is the world's only rotary-powered, four-door sports car.

Mazda Australia has now confirmed that the new RX-8 range will consist of three models one of which will wear the GT moniker.

The new Mazda RX-8 GT will spearhead Mazda's charge into the next decade of rotary exhilaration when it hits Australian dealerships in July. Specially tuned sports suspension with light-weight 19-inch wheels and a wide range of modifications to the RX-8's RENESIS rotary engine will raise handling and dynamic prowess.

The original Mazda RX-8 redefined the sports car genre when it debuted in production form at the 2003 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It was a sports car only Mazda could make A Sports Car Like No Other.

The Mazda RX-8's lines and compact proportions incorporated an innovative four-door body with room for four adults. This combined with the RX-8's unique RENESIS rotary power-plant capable of revving to 9,000 rpm to captivate car buyers and critics alike.

Some 170,000 have now been sold around the world.

When setting the goals for the new Mazda RX-8, Mazda's engineers chose not to mess with the original model's formula; instead all efforts were focussed on honing its performance and styling. Mazda RX-8 Programme Manager Noboru Katabuchi named this the pursuit of "Sophisticated Dynamism".
