Iconic RX-8 Limited Edition SPIRIT R in NZ

Mazda has announced that the RX-8 ‘SPIRIT R’ Special Edition is now available in New Zealand.

In advance of Mazda RX-8 production ending in June 2012, SPIRIT R will be the final special edition model, offering a striking commemoration for Mazda’s iconic four door, four seater rotary engine sports car.

SPIRIT R is named after the final limited edition Mazda RX-7 and this pedigree is reflected in stylish features that include an exclusive Recaro seat design and custom 19-inch alloy wheels.

The Mazda RX-8 SPIRIT R has a 6-speed manual transmission with exclusive features such as Bilstein sports suspension, distinctive red front and rear brake callipers.

Exterior features include 225/40 R19 89W tyres and 19-inch alloy wheels finished in stunning bronze with black centre cap. Front, side and rear spoilers improve aerodynamics and add street appeal. Black bezels within front and rear combination lamps and front fog lamps bring the race car to the fore and a SPIRIT R badge on C-pillar seals it in the Mazda history books.

The SPIRIT R is a sports car that means business with custom designed interior fittings. Distinctive SPIRIT R Recaro bucket seats are trimmed with black and red leather for effect. In addition, contrast red stitching on the steering wheel, gear shift, parking brake and door trim, set this RX-8 apart from the rest.

The limited edition RX-8 is available in three exterior colour options, Aluminium Metallic, Sparkling Black Mica and Crystal White Pearl Mica.

This vehicle is available in very limited numbers and for the same price as the standard model at $56,695 plus on-road costs. Every new RX-8 Spirit R comes with mazdacare as standard, including 3-years/100,000km (whichever occurs first) Mazda Scheduled Servicing, 3-years unlimited kilometre Mazda Factory Warranty and Mazda On Call Roadside Assistance.
