  • Mazda RX8

    I am really excite by this concept. It looks great, has a neat door system, and has one of the best N/A engines ever created IMO. But the only problem is that uncertainty of power. I heard 280, and it has 250. What will it be?

    I hear 250hp. I will wait to see one in the skin, but I think that the RX8 could be a great car. For competition though, I will stick to the FD RX7. In fact, I'm kind of moving towards getting one.

      I think you should Shaman. But the only complaint is the reliability. My dad had the original 84 Savannah in red. God I loved that car. But in the Winter of 89 it died. Reliability really hurt those cars rep, and I think the new Renesis engine will improve that. I have about 20K right now for a new car, and should have 30K by the time the RX8 comes out. I want either the RX8 or Zcar. Any ideas?

        You know the C111 Mercedes? I read the Jan 2001 R&T and it has an article about it. The car has 350bhp from a 2.4 liter 4 rotor N/A Wankel engine. That car has a whopping 145bhp/l......I wish they had made that car, that would let S2000 lose it's shine today.

          Hmm. I don't know. The RX8 is a neat car. Reliability is poor, yes, but you can seriously improve things by keeping everything cool. The heat is the #1 problem with the turbo RX7s, but I doubt it will be a problem with the RX8.

            Yeah, I heard the turbo's were the real trouble makers.

            I have a desktop diecast model of the C111 on my computer desk. Sweet car, made to pioneer Mercedes' wankel engine.

              I've heard about this car which I'm not positive I've seen pictures of it?? Was it in the autoweek a while back or do you have any links to it?

                  I know where you can find the picture of the Need for Speed IV version of the car.....

                  go to here:

                  and find the NFS 4 cars and find the AAA class C111....

                    I thought he was talking about the RX8. The NFS car looks exactly like the C111. Either way you should be able to tell what both cars look like now.
