There is a fairly long line in the field of assistance in the field of Mazda Miyoshi proving that encourages a little stretching of the leg, but radical left that leads to it is blind because of the hedges that surround much of the track.
Fortunately, the corner has wide paved shoulders for us to have a line of length, width, allowing the new RX-8 drift comfortably through the track as it barreled down the stretch. Then it was just a matter of burying the throttle and watch the digital speedometer wink up through numbers, reaching 190 kilometers per hour (approximately 119 mph) before running out of track.
As the speed creeps up, so does the intensity of sound, from a flat note ripping angry drone as it reaches its 8,500 rpm power peak. An almost imperceptible vibration controls growing at a subtle trembling, as if the car was firing a machine gun-recoil ultra-lightweight. The experience is unlike anything else.

Mazda engineers simply moved to the exhaust ports (no valves in a rotary engine) from which they had been on the peripheral face of the rotor housing and placed on the side plates. At a stroke, reducing the overlap between the ports of entry and escape, minimizing the amount of fuel-air mixture directly lost out the exhaust port.
In turn, this modification resulted in a lower fuel consumption and produces cleaner exhaust emissions. In the process of Mazda made the naturally aspirated 13, twin-rotor Renesis engine as powerful (in a provisional, 247 hp) turbocharged engine as the previous generation. One of the settings is a 30 percent increase in the size of the port. Other additions are a variable intake system and an electronic throttle volume. The rest is magic Mazda.
But before you start mentally calculating how much power a turbo version of the Renesis engine to drill, we have to say that the relatively cool exhaust gas turbo rotary engines prevents efficient catalytic conversion, so it is unlikely that we shall see shortly, if ever.
But never say never. Hey, who brought back the paper, right? And in this new RX-8, which embodies an unusual concept: the four-seater car sports. Yes, we know that Nissan once called the maxim of a car, four-door sports, but let’s be realistic here. The RX-8 actually runs and runs and feels like a spiritual successor to convince the discerning, but slow-selling RX-7.
It is easy to say four-seat sports car, but what does? In this case, means to feel light and nimble, like turning into a race car, and resisting roll in corners. This means dividing the mass 50/50 on the front and rear squatting on an independent suspension at all, with subsequent control of toe-links to keep the tail wagging the dog. (One of the features stability control is now included for the faint of heart.) This means that the rear-mounted gearshift slick six-speed, and a warning buzz when rotating roaring nine strokes queue.
