    Fujimi Mazdaspeed RX-8 A-Spec

      I’ve always really liked these cars, even if the RX-8 lived most of its life being the little brother that just wasn’t good enough or as cool as its iconic predecessor, the RX-7. The factory fender bulge arches and insanely cool rear suicide doors spoke to me on a existential level. At one point I almost bought one, but…
