The Mazda RX-8 is a sports car that seats four and can handle cargo. The rotary engine is super smooth, simple, high-revving and almost indestructible. It's complemented by a beautiful 6-speed gearbox, great brakes, and steering that talks to your hands. The RX-8 is a great sports car with an innovative approach and admirable engineering.
