haha

1.3 litre but uses too much fuel. and repairs cost a bundle.

Still quite good luxury inside. But i would say totally over rated. and if your close to 6 feet tall or over forget it u wont even be able to get in its tiny inside made for 5 feet men.

Excellent

I've owned rotary engines before and I missed them. Driving the RX8 just reminded me how sweet and smooth they are to use. It's a great car.
Brilliant car. Fast as a whip. Engine sings at revs. Back seats are impractical but very usable (6'1"son fits OK)
Limited space in the boot but I didn't buy it to haul stuff around. Some quality issues like strange rattles.

Great car...but expensive

Great ride.beautiful car but rotary engines are not the cheapest. Poor fuel economy and expensive in general. But if you have the money...extremely worth the buy . Great handling, so fun to drive and very enjoyable.
Great handling, beautiful shape, fun!

Excellent

There is NO other car like it on the market, fabulous Rotary RENESIS Motor, Stunning looks and features, seats 4 people and a true sports car. Mazda at their finest.
Sexy looks, Great Packaging for the high price. Handling second to none, Brakes among the top 10 in the world...Value
Why the retail price is so HIGH, Same car in the US $25K, Japan $29K on Road.

Why when the Yen has doubled in value why are Japanese cars SO EXPENSIVE?

Good

This review is based on a weekend test drive, not an actual Mazda RX8 owner. Great looks and the benefit over Nissan's 350Z competitor is the genuine two back seats which can 'comfortably' seat 2 small to medium size adults.
very head-turning looks, both on exterior and the interior. I must have received immeasurable looks and many, many comments during the time i was driving it. The engine and throttle are very responsive, as are the brakes. Excellent performance and true road hugging stability at all speeds (though i never exceeded ~100 km/h)
went through about a tank of petrol in two days, though granted i was driving the car like a sports car.
