Hello and Thank You for viewing another Premium Listing from Progressive Motors. Up next is a modern classic in the form of this 2005 Mazda RX-8 Shikra Edition. It comes to you CARFAX CERTIFIED and is accident free. There are also extensive service entries listed as well. This vehicle is in need of absolutely nothing. It is "AS NEW" down to the tires. The Shinka EDITION was introduced in 2005 and was the only year with the Black Cherry Mica color as shown. Similar to later special editions, the Shinka includes the features from the Grand Touring package with a few extras. It was branded as a luxury offering of the RX-8. The Shinka Edition includes the following features: Black Cherry Mica Paint, Parchment Interior, Chromed Wheels and Exhaust Tips, Foam filled crossmember, Upgraded shocks, Polyurethane bushings, Black trim along center console, Chrome accents around HID, Chrome accents around brake light. My two cents: It has been years since I drove one of these and even then it was to no great degree. As I was driving this one, I kept thinking – It revs to the moon, there’s no weight in the front end, and the shift action at such high RPM’s is brilliant. It feels like a junior 911 but more balanced. I imagine this is why RX8’s are a favorite among track enthusiasts for converting into club racers. Plus, its distinction goes way beyond just the powerplant. With its swoopy fenders and raked greenhouse, the overall shape itself screams “JDM enthusiast”. And what about those rear hinged back doors? This Mazda is a true pillarless coupe. A truly unique vehicle that came and went too quickly. It comes with books, both keys and the original window sticker. If you want "The Best" then this is the only one to have. Call Tom at (954)461-1892.
