Mazda RX-8 "Sport Pack"
Mazda is offering a new optional Sport Pack for all RX-8 models sold in the UK. The sport pack is priced at £350 ($714 or €502) and it consists of an Eibach lowered sports suspension kit, bright silver 10-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured aerodynamic side skirts, a satin-silver fuel filler cap and body-side RX-8 graphics. We really dig the 18-inch alloys but we can’t quite decide if we like the graphics or not. But what the hell; if we lived in the UK we’d just buy it as is and take off them of later on if we found it them a tad too "70’s".
MAZDA RX-8 WITH ‘SPORT PACK’ AND 0% FINANCE
Four-seater, four-door sports coupé with sensational looks and practicality
New special ‘Sport Pack’ (worth over £1,700) available for £350 on all models
0% finance on all standard, limited and special edition models until 31 December
The revolutionary Mazda RX-8 four-seater, four-door sports coupé is now available with 0% finance and a new optional Sport Pack priced at £350 – offering a customer saving of £1,400. Available for all models, the Sport Pack comprises Eibach lowered sports suspension, unique Bright Silver 10-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured aerodynamic side skirts, a satin-silver fuel filler cap and dramatic body-side RX-8 graphics.
The Mazda RX-8 with Sport Pack can be ordered in any of the six regular exterior colours, while the graphics are available in a choice of silver, charcoal grey or white, allowing customers to contrast with, or complement, their choice of body colour to suit their personal taste.
Two regular Mazda RX-8 models are available and both are powered by an ultra smooth-revving RENESIS rotary engine. The standard £21,500 Mazda RX-8 model features the 192ps engine with a five-speed manual gearbox, while the £23,000 high-power RX-8 model is fitted with the 231ps unit and a six-speed transmission. The 192ps model accelerates to 62mph in 7.2 seconds, while the 231ps model takes just 6.4 seconds.
Thanks to its unique blend of high-performance rotary engine power, perfect 50/50 front/rear weight distribution, rear-wheel drive, sports car dynamics and generous interior space, the Mazda RX-8 has helped boost Mazda sports car sales to record levels. Together with the Mazda MX-5, the RX-8 accounts for one in every five sports cars sold in the UK – earning Mazda the title of ‘Britain’s Favourite Sports Car Brand’.
