In Moscow

I have been in Moscow for a month now. I am sad to say I have not seen a single rx-8. It really is quite sad

Can't wait to be back in Houston and drive my rotary.

Yes, good people. If you haven't already make sure to spend an afternoon at the Tetryakov Gallery, just awesome. I should have bought one of their hard bound books, I regret not getting one now...

Which hotel you staying at? I stayed in the Ukraina right across the river from the Russian White House...

EDIT:
I was wondering why this thread seemed like deja vu, I went back in your post history and now understand why... :p

Dear KYLiquid

Thanks for the link. It's the same car as in the list from Alessandro isn't it?
4,000 km on the clock, build date in 2005, but $67,000 is pretty expensive, even though it's got some extras - front and side air dam skirts, rear spoiler and some neat-looking alloys. The advert does say that the price can be negotiated, though....
The colour is said to be 'red metallic' - it doesn't look like velocity red in the image.
It's good to see the RX-8 'cult' is spreading East, even though rev-2-9k didn't see any on his travels..........
My passion for the Russian Language is second only to my '8' - how good to see them both together.......
If there are any members who would like me to translate some Russian adverts, let me know.....:o
But, as the Romans said - caveat emptor - buyer beware!

I bought my RX-8 in June this year.
I had only seen one on UK roads beforehand, and only 8 since!
It's the exclusivity that adds to the wow-factor when driving this amazing car
Perhaps let's not spread the good news around too quickly.......:D

New RX8 in Moscow

One more RX8 appeared in Moscow, its mine, I bought it this summer from US market.

Great car!

Most attractive of all!

By the way I've been in Cologne Germany and in Paris France this October, visited moto and auto exhibitions, so, I didin't see any of RXs there. Sad.

But, at Paris auto exhibition on Mazda boot RX8 in blue was just great!
