Limited Edition Mazda RX-8 Hits Town
A very special limited edition Mazda RX-8 rotary sports coupe will make a special public appearance at the 2008 Melbourne International Motor Show.
The Mazda RX-8 Rotary Engine 40th Anniversary model builds on the exclusivity inherent in the world's only rotary-powered sports car with performance and styling modifications designed to further enhance the RX-8's uniqueness.
Only 200 examples of the RX-8 Anniversary model are now on sale in Australia, priced at $55,840.
The RX-8 Anniversary model features the award-winning RENESIS rotary engine, with 170kW of power and 211Nm of torque mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
This limited edition model builds on the RX-8 leather pack model's already high level of specification with unique leather and Alcantara* interior, leather wrapped steering wheel, gear shifter and handbrake handle, and specially-designed 40th Anniversary badging.
Handling and performance rise to another level thanks to standard fitment of Bilstein shock absorbers and urethane foam-filled front suspension cross member.
Other exclusive features of the Anniversary edition include distinctive high-gloss 18-inch alloy wheels, silver engine cover, a floating rear spoiler, sunroof and blue reflector fog-lamps.
These features are in addition to the pillarless Freestyle door system that allows easy access to the spacious interior that comfortably seats four adults.
Other standard features include a premium Bose® sound system, ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD), traction control, Dynamic Stability Control (DSC), cruise control, power windows and mirrors, climate control air-conditioning and 6 airbags.
It all adds up to a sports car like no other.
* Alacantara is non-woven suede made of microfibre by Toray Industries, Inc.
