I would really, really, like this car! I am hoping or possibly dreaming of owning a Mazda RX8 sometime soon after the new year. I don’t think that ‘Santa’ makes these in his toy factory , So I guess, I better get saving those pounds £££!
I’m that keen to get one, I have already been checking out the insurance costs and to be honest, it’s actually quoting a cheaper premium than my first year of driving a 1.1 Litre Citroen Saxo.
Mazda distribute two models of the RX8, one being 231bhp and the other 192bhp! Even the latter model is still incredibly powerful running on a 1.3 Litre rotary engine! Thinking about it a bit more, um, after Previous Experiences With Artic Lorries, I think I would probably have to drive this car a bit more cautiously / carefully / sensibly!
Which brings me to why I’d really like to own one of these cars. I love the interior and twinned with the fact that, for its ‘type of car’ its very competitive priced!
The speed does not attract me to the car, but I bet it will not rattle like a tin can at 70mph like my current death trap I am buzzing around in.
