The final Mazda RX-8 is here
Next summer sees the end of the Mazda RX-8, what better way to see it off than to create a special edition RX-8 Spirit R.
Mazda will be creating a limited run of 1000 Spirit R’s, which will be based on the RX-8 Type RS, or Type E if you prefer automatics.
New to the fold will be unique Spirit R badges, front fog lights, black bezel rear lights and piano black transmission tunnel trim. the RX-8 will be available in a choice of three colours; Aluminum Metallic, Sparkling Black Mica, and Crystal White Pearl Mica.
That’s not all, the RS trim version will feature red and black leather Spirit R Recaro seats and unique 19″ bronze alloys. The automatic Type E version will get sports suspension, larger brakes and a set of 18″ gun metal grey alloy wheels.
Mazda CEO, Takashi Yamanouchi adds:
