Depends on spec but in the UK the lo powered is 20k and hi is 22k. Once you add leather etc 24 is achievable.

2nd hand its a quiet time of year, some rx-8's are going for just under list price but theres not enough of a market yet to judge.

New as said base for 230 is 22k, with 1500 leather option etc it can get to 24 easy.

Are the prices for cars that already exist(stock new cars) or new car built to order from factory?

I went down my dealers yesterday lunchtime to look at their red demonstrator which they had fitted out with all the accessories (mine was the first RX8 delivered so I haven't seen them for real to decide) and surprisingly it was round the back with a sold sticker on it. The salesman wasn't in, but they recond it probably went for 22K but with leather and the accessories included.

I dont think you are going to find many genuine used cars (as opposed to ex-dealer) as the owners are so pleased with them, so the prices are going to remain high for now.

Cheers

Avoid ex-demos as they have been thrashed all the way from 0.

Most ex-demo's will have had 200-300 miles on before any testes got their hanbds on them - and thrashing from new isnt to bad anyhow.

My demo drive car had 595 on the clock so I didnt feel to bad bouncing it of the rpm limiter...

Didn't all the dealers go off somewhere to thrash the cars around a track, before bringing it back to their respective dealerships as demos?

I wonder if any 2nd hand cars from Japan will find its way to the UK soon? The car been around since april there so I guess if youre just wanting a RX8 for a lower price thats the best guess?

I think there is thrashing and then thrashing.

I at times redlines my car and very often drove around the 6/7 k revs within the first 600 miles. But a demo will be trashed from cold with everybody wanting to do as much as possible in a 1/2 an hour test drive.

Yep - they all had a blast round Silverstone for the day IIRC.
