Yep that's the problem with the RX-8. Not enough torque. It's a shame. Not enough beef! Could have been a REAL contender.Originally posted by Mr. Fancypants
Mazda RX-8 stats from Automobile magazine:
0-60 in 6.2 sec
1/4 14.8 @ 95 mph
Top speed 150
Aside from the looks, the performance seems pretty mediocre for the price. The entry level $25,700 has 210 horsepower with the fully optioned being $33,100 with 250 horsepower. I mean look at the torque for shiit sake!
