We (My wife and I) took our time and
checked out a number of performance
cars. When considering the thrill to
price tag ratio, no other car came close.
The engine looks no bigger than a
beach ball,but with a 9000 rpm redline
and 'snake in a rat-hole' handling, it's
more than enough!
My kids have plenty of room in the
back and I feel they are well protected
with the side curtain air-bags
To sum it up, the head turning good
looks of the RX-8 got us interested, the
pure fun of the ride sealed the deal.
