The 1st Generation of the Mazda RX-8 was introduced in 2003 and is powered by an 1.3L Renesis 13B-RSP Wankel 654x2 Rotary Engine.

When the 2006 model year of the RX-8 was launched in the United States a 6-speed gearbox was added and replaced the previous 4-speed gearbox.

A 2nd oil cooler was added to the Automatic transmission model of the car since it was only standard in the manual transmission model.

Overall Performance

Achievable Classes
TuningSection Class E Class D Class C Class B Class A TuningSection Class S
The Mazda RX-8 (2006) has a stock top speed of 217 km/h (135 mph) which is average for many Class D cars. The acceleration is strong throughout all of its gears but a weak nitrous output. The handling is very good and responsive as it can also do high-speed cornering without losing much speed, but it will become stiff at times, but it is not likely to understeer. The performance, when compared with the '09 edition, is very similar to one another, with very minor handling differences.

For Pursuit Outrun and Team Escape the RX-8 '06 can perform well. It can go through roadblocks fairly easily and it can dodge heavy police vehicles such as rhinos well because of its responsive handling. But due to the light weight that the '06 has, the RX-8 cannot take head-on collisions with rhinos very well. However, because of its good acceleration, the RX-8 can regain lost speed back quickly.
