Mazda RX-8 (231ps) 4d (2003/53) - Owner Review

Acceleration plus sharp handling - wow! Reviewers often say you have to work the engine hard, but it loves to rev so it never feels like hard work.

Thirsty engine (but if I wanted fuel economy I'd buy a Micra!). Servicing very reasonable.

Redline of 9000RPM gives lots of room for acceleration!
