I saw this gorgeous yellow RX-8 in Koreatown, LA and obviously, I immediately started thinking about my old RX-8. I bought mine in 2012 with 42,000 miles on the clock and kept it for 20 months and 20,000 miles. It was a 2006 model, the European equivalent of the Type S trim in Japan powered by a 232-hp Wankel making 159 lb-ft. The acceleration range and throttle response is both amazing and unusual. You floor it and nothing happens, then you keep on going and the engine wakes up at 4,000 rpm and then it will keep on accelerating relentlessly all the way to the 9,000+ rpm redline. It was astoundingly expensive to run and phenomenally unreliable. I kinda miss it, though. Might write (yet another) review of my old RX8 at some point.
