    Mazda Japan has just announced that it will launch the Spirit R version of the RX-8 on November 21st in Japan. Like for the RX-7 back in 2002, the Spirit R marks the final limited edition version of the rotary four-door. The car, based on the Type RS 6-speed manual (or Type E automatic) comes with bronze 19-inch wheels, leather trimmed red and black interior, a pair of Recaro seats, red brake calipers and other smaller visual details. Mazda continues to state that development of the rotary engine will not cease, so we can only hope to see more of these Wankel powered sports cars in years to come.

    hmm..i agree with you more than you could guess...but you have to credit mazda with keeping it alive as long as possible....rotaries are really thirsty engines, maybe thats what prompted them to let go of it..

    yes i completely agree
    3 of my mates got RX8
    one sold couple of months ago

    a tank would last them abt 250kms

    you can get a v8 and would do the same and gives you more power
