This car is so slept on and under rated because it came with a trash power plant. Look at these lines and the design language, mazda did it right on the Rx8 series 2. I feel like this car needs about 380hp and it would be a pure menace! I've driven this car over 59k up and down this pacific west coast, it's seen track days at 3 different tracks on this beautiful west coast, it's be battled through countless back roads in Northern California, it's done endless drift days, it has also been put on its electronically limited "155mph" allegedly. It's been crashed, it's taken my kid to school, it's taken myself and my wife to work for 8 years, it's been lend out to my mother when she's in town and it can come out in the middle of the work week and spin 245 pirelli p zero's @ 38psi on heavy ass vskf's with it's shockingly low 150lbs tq... I have gotten everything out of this car. Everything. But people swear rotary is unreliable... little do they know this is all 100% factory. Only one transmission job was done in this cars life time and I'm still beating on the original oem clutch that came in the car, 59,812 miles later this thing still takes wild clutch kicks. #mazdausa @mazdausa did they're thing when this #R3 #Mazda #rx8 came out and it was the perfect car for me to utilize when I rolled it off the line with 3.1 miles on the dash.
