2008 mazda rx8 for sale 1
Fast Facts:

  • The RX-8 has a near 50:50 weight distribution, which was accomplished by placing the engine behind the front axle and keeping the fuel tank ahead of the rear axle
  • Came with a Torsen limited slip differential as standard
  • Hood and rear doors are aluminum, and the driveshaft is made of carbon fiber on 6spd models
  • Racers claim that rotary engines naturally expose lost horsepower as they age. Car and Driver tested this theory in their 2004 RX-8 long term road test and found some truth to this statement. The test car, with 40k miles on it, consistently clocked a 0-60 time that was over half a second faster than what was achieved when the car was new
Key Model Year Changes:

  • No notable changes for 2008. This was the final year of the 1st generation (SE3P) RX-8. The following year (2009) began the facelifted 2nd gen
  • 2009 saw many changes, notably the Renesis Gen II engine, redesigned rear suspension, chassis stiffening, change in final drive ratio (from 4.444 to 4.777:1), bigger fuel tank, and much more
  • The previous year (2007) saw a 6 disc CD changer added to the Bose stereo as standard. This was also the first year of Stormy Blue Mica paint
