Mazda RX-8 With 'Sport Pack'

The Mazda RX-8 four-seater, four-door sports coupé is now available with 0% finance and a new optional Sport Pack priced at £350 – offering a customer saving of £1,400.  Available for all models, the Sport Pack comprises Eibach lowered sports suspension, unique Bright Silver 10-spoke 18-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured aerodynamic side skirts, a satin-silver fuel filler cap and dramatic body-side RX-8 graphics.

The Mazda RX-8 with Sport Pack can be ordered in any of the six regular exterior colours, while the graphics are available in a choice of silver, charcoal grey or white, allowing customers to contrast with, or complement, their choice of body colour to suit their personal taste.

Two regular Mazda RX-8 models are available and both are powered by an ultra smooth-revving RENESIS rotary engine.  The standard £21,500 Mazda RX-8 model features the 192ps engine with a five-speed manual gearbox, while the £23,000 high-power RX-8 model is fitted with the 231ps unit and a six-speed transmission.  The 192ps model accelerates to 62mph in 7.2 seconds, while the 231ps model takes just 6.4 seconds.

Thanks to its unique blend of high-performance rotary engine power, perfect 50/50 front/rear weight distribution, rear-wheel drive, sports car dynamics and generous interior space, the Mazda RX-8 has helped boost Mazda sports car sales to record levels.  Together with the Mazda MX-5, the RX-8 accounts for one in every five sports cars sold in the UK – earning Mazda the title of ‘Britain’s Favourite Sports Car Brand’ . Great Finance Promotions until 31 December 2007

As well as the ‘Sport Pack’ offer, all Mazda RX-8 models – standard, limited-edition and special-edition cars – are even more attractive this autumn, thanks to the introduction of three 0% finance promotions available on retail sales until 31 December.

1.  0 per cent APR Mazda Hire Purchase (minimum 30% deposit) over 36 months.
