2009 Mazda RX-8 R3 on the track

March 5, 2010

Presentation of the new mazda RX-8 R3. New bilsten shock absorbers, new 19″ wheels, new interior with recaro seats , new multimedia interface with bluetooth connection and many more.

IMHO the best add-on is the new lubrication system to enhance the reliability, which was a downside on the previous mazda RX8 model.

NEW Mazdaspeed Kit for 2009 RX8

November 29, 2008

New bodykit from Mazdaspeed for the 2009 RX8 . I think it looks better than the R3 version, especially in the front where it’s the best looking RX8 ever. Also it’s got a wider rear spoiler than the R3 version, better looking wheels and NEW improved sport seats like the ones found in the AMG mercedes versions.

Mazda Rx-8 R3 review

October 25, 2008

There is a version of this 5-year old sports car..The latest rx8 continues with an updated version of it’s signature rotary engine which uses twin spinning rotors, instead of pistons to provide the same as performance from a capacity of just 1.3 litre. The result is an engine that offers different power outputs according to which gearbox you choose. The standard 6 gears manual develops 170kw power at an incredible 8200 revs per minute, while the all new 6 speed AT, pumping out 158 kw at lower revs.

The downside of this car is the V8 style consumption, you will have to drive at lower revs to achive the 12litres /100km which the mazda can manage, and that won’t be easy because you really have to rev the car to make it go.

Never mind, because a number of suspension changes means that the Rx8 R3 has even greater steering and corner capabilities than before making it a TRUE DRIVER’S CAR.

Fans can spot the changes by the larger front end intake, bigger head lights, re-styled tail lights, different rear spoiler, btw which i dont like, better exhausts and new 19″ forged alloys. Inside you will find improved front seats, a revised instrument panel, more standard equipment, an upgraded stereo system with ipod plugin, paddle shifts for the automatic gearbox version.

This is a sports car and family runabout all into one.

PACKIGING INNOVATIONS – ULTIMATE PERFORMANCE RX-8 R3

RX8 unique technology - Rotary engine

October 25, 2008

 

Launched in 2003, the Mazda RX-8 hit the global market with a serious bang. The RX-8 has won more than 50 global awards since its release including 2003 RJC Car of the Year in Japan Australia’s Wheels magazine’s Car of the Year for 2003, 2003 International Engine of the Year, 2004 Singapore Car of the Year, the 2004 U.S. Best Sports Car and UK Car of the Year 2004. It was also named on Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best list for 2004, 2005, and 2006. All together, Mazda has sold nearly 167,000 RX-8s around the world.

 

For 2009, Mazda will further the evolution of the four-door, four-seater sports coupe, giving RX-8 a refreshed exterior and interior design, enhanced performance and a new R3 sport package for the ultimate driving enthusiast.

Unchanged is the core of the RX-8 – a high-powered, lightweight and perfectly balanced machine powered by the world-renowned twin-rotor RENESIS rotary engine.

“Dating back to the Cosmo Sport released in 1967, every sports car ever developed by Mazda has had the same fundamental mission – to provide car lovers with a vehicle that’s fun-to-drive, exciting to look at and easy to own,” said Tetsu Nakazawa, Mazda North American Operations’ RX-8 vehicle line manager. “The 2009 RX-8 embodies that mission, conveying the unique and distinctive Mazda brand DNA to the fullest.”

To enhance the highly successful RX-8, Mazda engineers focused on innovation in three key areas for the 2009 RX-8: styling, performance and packaging. “The enhancements made to RX-8’s exterior, interior, packaging and performance takes it to a whole new level of visual and driving excitement,” remarked Nakazawa.

STYLING INNOVATION – REFRESHED DESIGN CUES PROVIDE “HIGH-QUALITY” DYNAMISM

2009 mazda rx-8 front left.JPG

RX-8 was designed with an athletically sculpted exterior that provides a sense of originality that’s unrivaled in the marketplace today. For 2009, RX-8 receives design enhancements that are meant to freshen the styling and give RX-8 a new look, without impairing the basic design theme. Refinements for the 2009 model year include restyled front and rear bumpers and front fascia; sporty, high quality finish front and rear headlamps; and larger exhaust pipes (now measuring 90 mm across). The 2009 RX-8 also offers a new five-spoke wheel design featuring a symbolic and sporty design reminiscent of the rotary engine, with different arrangements for each wheel size.

Taut muscular lines give RX-8 the liberating look of an athlete in motion. The muscular styling maintains classic sports car proportions while adding a Zoom-Zoom edge that is unmistakably Mazda.

The RX-8’s unique “freestyle” four-door design is proof that a true sports car does not need to sacrifice space or convenience for performance. The advanced design of the rear-hinged rear doors, provides a large door opening, allowing adult-sized passengers to easily enter and exit the vehicle. This design is also advantageous when securing a baby or a small child in the back seat. With a spacious rear seat area providing ample passenger room for four full-size adults, and enough trunk space for a weekend’s worth of luggage, this sports car proves its versatility.

The RX-8’s exterior styling presents a genuine sports car form, while the interior boasts a comfortable and intelligently designed cabin. Minor enhancements were made for the 2009 RX-8 to provide a simple and functional interior design that supports driving pleasure. The center IP shape was redesigned to give a feeling of dynamic movement, a variable red-zone was added to the tachometer that will rise as the engine comes to operating temperature and a new steering wheel and redesigned front and rear seats are also added.

An extremely low cabin floor allows the seats to be mounted low in the chassis, which, along with a low instrument cluster and hood, allows a low center of gravity and allows outstanding occupant visibility. Mazda designers concentrated on the shape of the front seat backs and the rear seat cushions to ensure adequate rear-seat knee room. Front seat slide-rails are positioned to allow maximum leg room for rear-seat passengers.

The rotary design element is incorporated through the interior of the RX-8 in creative ways, appearing in the seats. The stylish cabin also evokes a sense of luxury and high-end quality. Mazda’s design team examined every aspect and component of the interior and has created an elegant, driver-centric atmosphere. Through the use of advanced ergonomic research, Mazda engineers determined that improper seating posture is a major cause of driver fatigue and built in optimum support in the front seats to help offset discomfort. In addition, the color of the RX-8’s instrument cluster was developed to reduce eye fatigue and strain.
