Eccentric Uncle Tim’s buy of the week
MAZDA last produced its rotaryengined RX-8 in June but secondhand buyers can still have a Wankel, with Carsguide listing 102 rotary models. Several low-kilometre recent RX-8s feature for those able to drop more than $40,000 but racier late-model RX-7s are more enticing. The coolest could be a beautiful 2002 RX-7 Spirit R (similar to that pictured) in NSW for less than $28,000. Get it checked because Spirit Rs attract the heavy of foot. This turbo coupe also attracts general attraction on account of being attractive. It might be the prettiest Japanese car ever, after Toyota’s 2000GT. Carsguide.com.au.
