Top Gear Mazda RX8

Jeremy takes the Mazda for a test drive. He criticizes its ugly shape. It looks like both a coupe and a saloon. The good thing about it is that it has the best of both worlds. It has a 1.3 litre engine and a massive output of 288bhp. Jeremy was impressed by how easy it was to drive at high speeds especially on curves. This is because of its front engine and rear wheel drive. Watch this video on: www.youtube.com/watch#!v=QRiPSlx8PxA&feature=related
