Rocket Bunny Mazda RX-8 Specifications
The real RX-8
With the Mazda RX-8, the only Wankel engine car disappeared from the stage in 2012.
The interior of the RX-8 was dominated by the Recaro sports seats covered in cloth and leather – unfortunately mounted a bit too high – with a slim fit and excellent lateral support. There’s also a multifunction steering wheel and a rich-sounding Bose hi-fi system.
Under the flat hood worked the engine improved in terms of oil cooling and knock sensor technology. The low-vibration Wankel takes off, singing like a siren, as only a rotary engine can, and does not shy away from peaks in engine speed up to 9,000 rpm. The power output is very even, although consistently at a low level (maximum 211 Nm). For this reason alone, the Mazda demands revs and shifting work in the now shorter-ratio gearbox in order to be nippy on the road according to its 231 hp.
The high rpm level and the unfavorable combustion chamber shape take their toll at the gas pump. Test consumption: 13.8 liters. This is a pity, because the RX-8 is on the one hand a very precise and agile sports car, and on the other hand fully suitable for everyday use with its good space conditions and acceptable suspension comfort. But Mazda is already working on the issue of fuel consumption/exhaust gas, and a successor Wankel with direct injection is already being developed. This will then be used in a lightweight two-seater. Until then, it’s likely to be another two to three years, which the Wankel fan can easily bridge with the renovated RX-8.
