Given the Mazda RX-8's status as a sporty performance car, most people bought the RX-8 to use -- and, thus, most RX-8 models have a lot of mileage. This particular RX-8 is an exception, as it's a 2004 model with just 15,000 miles, which is less than any other RX-8 currently listed on Autotrader -- by a factor of five.

Offered by eBuy Motorcars in Lemont, Illinois, a Chicago suburb, this RX-8 is finished in black with a red interior. It has the desirable manual transmission, rather than the automatic which actually brought down the car's horsepower and performance. Enthusiasts may not like the fact that it has aftermarket wheels and a massive aftermarket stereo system that takes up much of the trunk, but those could be reversible for anyone looking for an ultra-low mileage RX-8.

As for the history of a 15-year-old car with just 15,000 miles, the Carfax report shows that it was sold new in Florida, where the first owner drove it less than 2,000 miles in five years. A second owner in Virginia drove it only 200 miles over the next four years, essentially ensuring this would be a "preserved" RX-8, as it had just 2,200 miles by 2012. Future owners drove it more than prior ones, but mileage is still exceptionally low.

And now, it can be yours. It's offered for $13,900, which is a nice number for someone interested in an RX-8 that hasn't traveled much distance -- and maybe especially nice for someone who wants to show off the big wheels and massive sound system.
