Mazda RX-8 PZ: More Focused Coupe - Articles Surfing
In response to customer feedback, Mazda has introduced a more focused version of its coupe – RX-8 PZ. The four-door sports coupe went on sale in the United Kingdom last July. From July Mazda RX-8 PZ has already established a good standing in both sales and reviews.
RX-8 PZ used some of the outstanding RX8 parts Mazda RX 8 and accessories to create the high-power version of the coupe. PZ has been developed through the collaboration of Mazda with Prodrive, a leading motorsport company.
Mazda’s agreement with Prodrive is to build a special car model that has the standard attributes of RX-8 without sacrificing the passenger’s comfort. Moreover, Prodrive developed bespoke suspension settings after conducting several extensive testing on selected roads and motorways. Another specification made by Prodrive is the lowering of the ride height by 15mm.
Aside from said special collaboration, Mazda also sought the help of specialist component suppliers like Eibach, Bilstein and OZ Racing. Top-quality components from the mentioned suppliers were used in manufacturing Mazda RX-8 PZ. This is to ensure exclusivity and power of the new vehicle.
The company also contemplated on reducing the roll and pitch and to making a flatter cornering attitude hence special Bilstein dampers and Eibach coil springs were used. Moreover, Prodrive specifications were satisfied. The spring rates were also increased by 60 percent and the mono-tube dampers were given tighter body control. However, the superb compliance over ridges and bumps in the road was maintained.
Mazda RX-8 PZ also comes with a bunch of unique features such as 18-inch OZ alloy wheels, rear silencer and aerodynamic rear spoiler, lowered suspension, grille mesh inserts on front and rear bumpers, door mirrors, and the one-of-a-kind 'Prodrive' badging. The distinguishing features of the latest of Mazda family include its color which is available in solid Brilliant Black and metallic Galaxy Grey. In addition, it also features black leather seat trim, plus black leather-wrapped steering wheel, gear knob and hand-brake lever, which make it more classy and sophisticated.
