Mazda to Produce 1,000 Additional RX-8 Spirit Rs
The special edition was such a big hit primarily due to the car’s long-lasting appeal and rotary engine, but also the special touches added to set it apart from lesser models. It gets larger brakes with red calipers, special wheels, new headlights and foglights, exclusive SPIRIT R badge and special Recaro Sports Seats with red stitching to name a few.
It is a shame to see the RX-8 dying off along with its rotary engine, without a clear promise of it being reborn. Hopefully, Mazda will keep developing its rotary engine technology to power the RX-8 successor.
