Check out the legendary Mazda RX-8

This 1/18 scale model car, made by AUTOart, is an exact replica of the stunning Mazda RX-8. This particular model is based on the original first-generation version, which was produced from 2003 to 2012. The Mazda RX-8 was designed as the successor to the Mazda RX-7 and brought a breath of fresh air to the world of sports coupes. Engineer Takao Kijima and designer Ikuo Maeda played crucial roles in the development of this cult car. Notable features include the suicide doors that make getting in the back easier. With its unique blend of performance, design, and technology, the Mazda RX-8 immediately caught the eye.

Technical masterpiece - Rotary engine of the Mazda RX-8

A standout feature of the Mazda RX-8 is the rotary engine, also known as the Wankel engine. This innovative technology, developed by Felix Wankel, sets the RX-8 apart from other sports cars. The 1.3-liter engine in the RX-8 produces an impressive 231 PS at high RPMs. Many enthusiasts appreciate the balanced weight distribution and sporty driving feel of the vehicle. In the 2003 era when the RX-8 hit the market, "In Da Club" by 50 Cent ruled the music charts, while the "Spirit" rover safely landed on Mars. It was also the year when the Concorde supersonic airliner was retired - an era ended as another began in the automotive world.

Detail accuracy of the 1/18 scale model car by AUTOart

The model car crafted by AUTOart stands out for its detailed reproduction of the Mazda RX-8. Owned by Modelly member "Andy," this model is made of high-quality diecast material. The diecast process involves pouring liquid metal into a mold under high pressure, resulting in impressive detail accuracy and durability. From the deep red paint job to the intricate body design lines and the precisely crafted headlights and wheels – everything reflects the essence of the original. The chrome-shining 19-inch BBS wheels are a sight to behold and add extra realism to the model.

Special features and grand appearances of the original

The red paint job on the Mazda RX-8 model highlights the curved shapes and sporty design of the vehicle. The car is adorned with authentic brand badges and lettering that enhance the genuine look. The RX-8 has also made its mark in pop culture, especially in the famous movie "Fast & Furious: Tokyo Drift." In the film, the character Neela, played by Nathalie Kelley, drifts the RX-8 through the streets of Tokyo in thrilling scenes. This significantly boosted the model's popularity and inspired many car enthusiasts to customize their own vehicles.
