Another RX-8 special edition from Mazda

27 September 2006

Mazda has a fondness for special editions, and the RX-8 coupe now has another, called the Nemesis.

Unlike the previous PZ and Evolve editions, the Nemesis is based on the lower-powered 189bhp version of the rotary-engined four-door coupe.

It's easy to tell the Nemesis from standard versions. It's covered in branded badging and polished aluminium exterior trims, and comes in two unique shades of Mica paint - Copper Red and Stormy Blue.

Like the entry-level RX-8 on which it is based, the Nemesis provides climate control, heated seats with electric adjustment, front foglights, a nine-speaker BOSE stereo with six-disc CD changer, stability control and six airbags.

The Nemesis also adds leather upholstery to the list. Luxury floor mats and aluminium scuff plates are also provided.

The Nemesis costs £22,995, which is £330 less than the standard 189bhp version with leather upholstery specified as an extra. Mazda says that the free Mica paint and accessories are also worth another £945. Buyers will also qualify for a Prodrive experience day to learn how to get the best from their car.

At this price, though, you can have a 228bhp version for just £95 more if you're prepared to live without leather trim.

The RX-8 Nemesis is on sale now, but you'll have to get in quick. Mazda will sell 350 in the UK - 200 in red and 150 in blue.
