The 2011 Mazda RX-8 is a RWD 4-door sports "coupe� powered by a RENISIS 1.3-liter rotary engine that produces 232 hp and 159 lb-ft of torque. This versatile sports car is available in two transmissions; 6-speed short-throw shifter manual or 6-speed automatic equipped with paddle shifters. The rotary engine allows an impressive redline of 9000 rpm with the manual transmission however suffers as far as fuel economy is concerned with an EPA estimated 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway. A unique characteristic of the RX-8 is its clamshell door design that gives it the sporty appeal of a coupe and the convenience of a sedan. For those who have a real need for speed, the R3 trim level delivers a motorsport-inspired package including 19-inch forged aluminum-alloy wheels, performance-tuned suspension, Bilstein� shock absorbers, and Recaro� front sport leather. The RX-8 comes standard with front, front side-impact, and side-impact air bags. Other standard safety features include a collapsible steering column and ABS. The RX-8 is eligible for an extended protection plan up to 10 years/100,000 miles.
The RX-8 has a lot of competition among sporty vehicles in the $30,000 range, but it is the Mazda's unique features that enhance its appeal. The Mazda RENESIS rotary engine is the only one of its kind available in the United States, and the RX-8's rounded styling makes it unmistakable on the road. The RX-8's handling is almost universally acclaimed by auto journalists and enthusiasts alike. Add in Mazda's reputation for making great-handling, reliable, value-laden vehicles and the RX-8 becomes the only one in its class.

The optional 6-speed automatic with paddle shifters, available on the Sport and Grand Touring models, makes 212 hp.
