Spirits Sore at Mazda

Post by Rope-Pusher » Sat Oct 08, 2011 8:19 pm

Mazda will close out the RX-8 sports car's run in Japan with a Spirit R edition, the same way it brought the curtain down on the RX-7 in 2002. (SHHHHH - Don't Tell Noob!)

But the RX-8 Spirit R won't make it to U.S. showrooms. That's OK. The changes are mostly cosmetic.

The package includes curtain and front side-impact airbags, red-painted brake calipers and black trim on the transmission tunnel. Buyers who take the manual transmission get Recaro bucket seats and bronze-colored 19-inch wheels. Go with the automatic, and you get an interior adorned with red stitching, a sports suspension and 18-inch alloy wheels.
