Sorry to be overly critical but there are actually no cylindersOriginally Posted by DTR rexYeah, I think there is no denying that the RX8 is an excellent sport sport car in most reguards. The handling, braking, interior and exterior styling, weight distribution and such. For some people, the awesome handling and braking characteristics the car has is enough to outweight the fact that it has no torque and is underpowered... For others, it's not enough.
I personally do not mind a car that is only a mid-high 14sec car (like the RX8) if it can handle and break excellently as well as having a nice tranny and nice interior. HOWEVER, it's the extremely low torque that would bother me... Not to mention the fact that it burns oil and gets 18mpg from an N/A 4cylinder.
If I had $25,000 to spend on a new car though, and the wrx was not an option I might very well give the RX8 a lot of thought.
