2005 Mazda RX-8 Manual 4dr Coupe (1.3L 2rtr 6M)


I have owned 2 Mazda RX-7 FC3s and One FD3s and I love these rotary rockets. Since I've learned of them I switched over from pistons. Yes, people have their preferences, but i enjoy driving a different engine. I love it to death. Sure it has lower torque than a 350z and eats up a bit more gas but its a risk I take and don't even question 'cause I enjoy the pure driving experience I get from driving it. It's great on twisties and city driving in NYC. I love the car, don't get me wrong I like 350z, G35, 'Vettes and Mustang but the rotary is so nimble and agile. It's styling took me a while to get used to it but its unique and has been compared to Italian cars design by Road and Track.

Best Features

Rotary interior, styling.

Worst Features

More torque.
