A friend of mine has a RX8, "SHE" seems to like it.


Caterham 7 - Now you're talking. Fantastic on the track, I don't like them on the roads though!

yah i think the rx-8 is an interesting looking car, i don't think i could ever own one

the caterham 7 is a sweet car for the performance, i don't think i could drive one besides on the track, or unless i had a crap load of money and it was one of many, mainly because i like practicality along with performance

RX-8 is a fun car to drive. I don't care what people say, but its a cheap way to enjoy sports driving. Also on top gear, stig got the same time with a rx-8 as he did with a M3 around there track. Also it comes well equiped.
