Zooming With The 2007 Mazda RX 8 GT
The Mazda RX8 GT is a sports car and it may have been created to be such but it is yet an extraordinary sports car. This vehicle has already got proof of just how much of a sports car it can be for it has already been the recipient of various awards which even include the Car of the Year award for the year 2003 from Wheels magazine. A year after that, the vehicle also was recognized as one great sports car when it was nominated for the North American Car of the Year award but as luck would have it, it was not able to take home the prize. For three consecutive years starting 2004, the Mazda RX 8 GT also became listed and recognized as one of the best cars in the Car and Driver magazine’s Ten Best vehicle list.
The vehicle was also made popular when it was used for a couple of events that included the media. If you would go back to history, you would know that back in 2004, the Mazda RX 8 GT was used in a racing series, the Formula Woman. And if you can watch the 2003 movie X2: X-Men United, you would also be able to catch a glimpse of this sports car there.
A Renesis rotary engine is the source of power behind this sports car and the Mazda MPV auto parts creator does say that such an engine has differentiated this vehicle from the rest of the sports cars and wannabe sports cars on the road. This engine may be small and could seem to be harmless, however, this 1.3 liter rotary engine has got the right kind of performance and power to make the 2007 Mazda RX 8 GT zoom by you. It has been designed to actually create some 232 units of horsepower and along with that some 159 foot pounds of torque for the rear wheels to give the vehicle a further boost in speed.
On the downside, you may want to reconsider owning a sports car such as this if you do not have enough budget for a vehicle that guzzles gas like water. You see, for city driving, you can only get an average of 12.8 liters per 100 kilometers while highway driving could give you only 9.2.
