Summary

A8 RX8 SE stats (MP KMH)

The Mazda RX-8 Special Edition was added in the 2018 Summer Update as a high-end Class B car with the following rank statistics:

Performance

The Mazda RX-8 Special Edition can reach a max real speed of 469.8 km/h - 291.7 mph at MAX+PRO with a Tuning Kit in 2.1 seconds. This makes the RX-8 SE faster than the BMW M2 Special Edition, Ferrari GTC4Lusso, Holden Coupe 60, and McLaren MP4/8. The RX-8 SE performance-wise is largely similar to its Class D counterpart except without the Elite Vehicle status and better nitro efficiency. As such, it can now be considered as the best-performing vehicle in Class B.

Usage

The RX-8 SE's primary use is in TLEs at MAX+PRO. However, the BMW M2 Special Edition may remain as the most viable choice for B Class-only events due to the RX-8 SE's restrictive availability, high upgrade costs of A8Tokens only upgrades, and 32 legendary Rotary Engines necessary for Pro Kits (4 more than the required amount for the Mazda Furai, the previous fastest Mazda).

The RX-8 SE is less suitable for Multiplayer than the other Special Edition cars due to its upgrade rank percentages (5/70/5/20) being heavily biased towards top speed, although it is still useful for players in lower Leagues due to its decent speed at various ranks.

Several useful non-MAXPRO Multiplayer tunings include:

  • 1501 4050 (Rank 1454): Speed= 441.4 km/h
  • 0500 5050 (Rank 1465): Speed= 448.1 km/h
  • 0502 5050 (Rank 1492): Speed= 452.1 km/h
  • 0502 5055 (Rank 1523): Speed= 456.2 km/h
  • 0504 5050 (Rank 1541): Speed= 458.4 km/h
  • 0504 5055 (Rank 1572): Speed= 462.5 km/h
  • 0505 5050 (Rank 1573): Speed= 461.5 km/h
  • 0504 5555 (Rank 1602): Speed= 466.6 km/h
  • 0505 5055 (Rank 1604): Speed= 465.6 km/h
  • 0505 5555 (Rank 1635): Speed= 469.8 km/h

Note: Although pro kits are more efficient than max upgrades (i.e. 0504 5055 Rank 1572 is 1.0 km/h [0.6 mph] faster than 0505 5050 Rank 1573), it is unlikely the player will have enough Rotary Engines to tune the car in this way. Therefore, 0505 5050 Rank 1573 will be the most viable tune for the majority of players.

Price

The RX-8 SE is neither purchased with credits nor tokens or able to be assembled with Blueprints. It only can be obtained through the completion of its R&D event.

Upgrades for the RX-8 SE cost A8Credits 1,992,400 + A8Tokens 1,945 while Pro Kits require A8Credits 1,518,775, 17 of each Class B Parts card, 14 Early & Initial Tech cards, 24 Mid-Tech cards, and 32 Rotary engine cards.
