Last 100 Mazda RX-8 R3 Coupes

Mazda are saying goodbye to an iconic sports car

Mazda are saying goodbye to an iconic sports car the rotary engined four seater Mazda RX8. There are only one hundred examples of Mazda's unique Mazda RX-8 R3 coupes left in UK stock. Special finance offers are available until the 30 September 2010, deals offered include no deposit and typical 5.9% APR finance on Mazda Conditional Sale and Mazda Personal Contract Purchase up to 36 months.

Mark Cameron, Sales Director, Mazda UK said “British motorists love sportscars and engineering excellence, so it is no wonder that over the last seven years the Mazda RX-8 has been close to their hearts.  More than 26,000 enthusiastic drivers have purchased a Mazda RX-8 in the UK, won over by its truly exhilarating drive, fascinating super-smooth rotary engine and many unique features, combined with everyday reliability and practicality.

The Mazda RX-8 R3 is priced at £25,540 and represents incredibly good value for a 231ps sportscar with the ability to reach 62mph in just 6.4 seconds. The uniquely high-revving RENESIS engine of the Mazda RX-8 R3 is evolved to deliver sharper responses.  Maximum power is 231ps at 8200rpm and the six-speed manual gearbox has a lower final drive ratio for a sharper getaway from standstill and improved performance feel.

The interior of the Mazda RX-8 R3 features new Recaro sports seats in the front, a new-style steering wheel with audio controls, Bluetooth® connectivity and cruise control. There is the new BOSE®premium audio system with an eight-channel amplifier, 6-CD autochanger, nine speakers and an auxiliary (AUX) input jack for connecting an MP3 player.
