This is a cool view i haven't seen before. The person driving gives me an idea of how big the interior is. Good find.
The most interesting thing i saw was the mention that it will go on sale in europe in may, a few months after it goes on sale in Japan and the US.
According to this (the vid), the car will do around 6.3 0-60mph not to shabby at all for a 4 seeter. Hopefully thats the euro times though, cause we get a more powerful engine, which may take it down to around 5.9ish, which is fast, although 6.3 is fast enough for me.
I think the car's strongpoint will be a distance covered and not a speed reached, as the rotary winds out better at higher revs.
Though I do expect around a 6.0 0-60 time just to be competitive with the rest, I don't care if it fluctuates a tenth or so in either direction, but let's keep it reasonable. Not for me, but for the sake of marketing.
huh, in looking at the pictures, I just realized the gas cap is on the left hand side of the car. I'm used to BMW's where it is on the right. Is this common to all Mazda's?
Yep. It's just more convenient when getting out to pump gas. It's a RH drive leftover where a lot of re-tooling(i.e. fuel tank, lines) would be needed. Many pick-ups still have them on the right side for some reason.

2nd gen RX-7s have it on the passenger side. Me, I could care less where they put it. I just hope it'll like 87 octane as much as the 2nd gens do
