    Always Puts A Smile On My Face! — Excellent car and great fun, you'll get through lots of fuel, but you'll have a smile on your face. Keep an eye on the ignition coils though and don't buy a second hand one without a compression test! Also looks amazing :D

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Performance

    Cons: Reliability

    Fun Car — acceleration slightly slower, braking is acceptable, handling is its strong point. In terms of building, no flaws at the moment but the best part is that it's a mixture of saloon and sport car. 2 tone interior... in terms of fuel, well its cheaper than a ferarri.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: fun, 4 door sports car, great handling...

    Cons: Its a wankel

    Awesome Car... For Car Enthusiasts. — The Mazda RX8 is an enthusiasts car to the core. I had my RX8 for 3 years and loved it. The Wankle Rotary Engine puts out a torque 215hp to the preloaded rear diff. This car loves hilly curvy roads and has no problem showing up stop light racers! The cars interior is stellar. The red on black leather package is super cool. Downsides to this car are the gas milage and oil burn. It sucks fuel like a private jet and burns oil. It's a fact. I gues you could say its like owning a boat, there are two days you are happy the day you buy it and the day you sell it.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Speed, Performance, Fun

    Cons: Horrible gas milage, labor intensive ownership
