New RX-8 waits in the wings

2007-12-12 08:06
It's scheduled for a Detroit Motor Show unveiling, and fans of Mazda's rotary-powered RX-8 will be glad to know that their favourite sports car's facelift is said to up the ante even more...

The first spy shots camouflaging the car's mid-life facelift have surfaced.

Extensive cladding around the car's nose suggests this RX-8's entire front end will be re-designed, while the taillight clusters appear tweaked too.

Mazda promises that the facelifted four-door 2+2 seater will, along with its revised styling, also enjoy improved handling and acceleration.

Its interior will be updated too, though the 1.3-litre rotary engine is likely to continue unchanged.
