    Yes. In nominal engine displacement 1.3L is correct. However, in effective displacement (which takes frequency of power cycles in account) the nominal displacement is multiplied by 2 which results in 2.6 liters. Why multiply by two? Because the Wankel rotary has twice the number of power cycles relative to its displacement compared to a reciprocating engine. Both rotors go through a power cycle for every single e-shaft revolution, compared to once every two crank revs in a recip. Exactly double.

    You're looking at it from the wrong perspective, you cant compare engine displacement between piston and rotary engines like that.

  • veljkoblv

    Man, it is 1.3 l engine, it counts like 2.6 because of its unfair power compared to piston engines.

  • Assad Ali

    about 8 sec to 100? Something must be wrong i'd expect it to be faster than that.

  • Unlimited Gaming & Motorsport

    stop saying stupid stuff like it equals to 2.6. This shit is 1.3, that's why it can only produce around 160 of torque. saying V6 LoL

  • bojana dakskofler
    bojana dakskofler 5 лет назад

    sry but i have to correct you. the engine is a 1.3, period. the rule to multiply the displacement x2 is there just to give the otto engines a fighting chance in bhp comparrison and similar comparisons.

    for example: the honda s2000 produces 120bhp/l, and is one of the best N/A engines, but the rx8 produces 177bhp/l

    the rotary only has 2 problems:
    1:low torque, but can be solved by a turbo
    2:drinks a LOT of fuel

    @mrflipydip12 yeah right, and if you squeeze it just a little more, it will do 100 in 2 seconds and will beat a Veyron...It does 0-100 in 6,2 seconds WITH trashing. Let's say factory figures are conservative, so 6 in reality. And that's it. People around here are not as dumb as you might think, trashing a car won't bring it two seconds below factory figures, otherwise why would people give XX.XXX more money to get a car in the four-seconds club?

  • sTTu

    @mrflipydip12 Huh dude? He starts on ONE second and hits 100 at TEN seconds. That makes NINE seconds. EVEN if you are kind and give him a rolling start from 2 seconds, that's still 8 0-100kph - which (imho) for a sports car is a tad on the sloooow side!!

    @DK99824
    wtf are you talking about? this rx8 has a 1.3L, thats right, 1.3 L rotary engine that produces 230 HP. The 350z has a 3.5 L V6 and only produces about 300 HP

  • APO6
    APO6 5 лет назад

    @DK99824 while the engine may be lighter than cars of it's class, that advantage still doesn't make up for the lack of power and torque. if you look at the RX8's supposed rival the 350Z, the 350 is heavier overall but still walks the RX8 on straights because it has the torque. In the handling aspect, because the RX8 is lighter, it is better than a 350. not bashing the RX8. I'm just saying an 8 isn't meant for a straight line.

    @19danflo you are right about it not being a piston engine, however, you are wrong about the displacement, since its a rotary, and not a piston, you cant get an approx displacement conversion. people always say, noooo you have to multiply by 2, or 3. fact is that its a 1.3, and people need to find an excuse to come up with after they get passed by one. last time i checked a 6 litre v8 doesnt equal a 3 litre rotary...

    @HBXTQ1990 Oh yeah, the Z is VERY rough.. but that's ok, too. It has a different character. But in any case it cannot get an RX8 on a twisty road. Thats one thing that makes the RX8 so fun and yes: furthermore it's quite comfortable and the interior is way better and more beautiful than in the 350Z. Anyways: I really like both cars.

  • ZeroSkillJustLuck
    ZeroSkillJustLuck 6 лет назад

    @vortex3k you know what you are talking about. I have met a lot of people saying the RX-8 is too slow and they would rather have a 350z. Of course the 350z is a nice car too, but boy is it hard... the rx-8's suspension is really really soft for a sports car because of its low centre of gravity. I also drive an S2000 and that similar to the 350z has more punch but it sure is uncomfortable to drive compared to the rx-8 :D And due to its suspension and COG you can corner like a beast with it :)

    The red color tuned RX-8 is not here now :-(
    and I dont saw his owner to ask to him the power of engine and if I could take photos to show it to you :-(
    Arfff
    so, thanks for my Clio 2 RS1 :-)
    Sure it is a little rocket ^^
    I beging any little mods to increase the engine power to 178-180hp now at 192-200hp
    With its light weight, 930kg about (reservoir empty) it is and it will be more a nice ratio "Weight / Power" who give a funny "little" sport car to drive know me ^^ ;-)

  • passion:driving
    passion:driving 6 лет назад

    @cumbas Oh yes, it is a great car indeed. I wouldn't want to own one though, but it IS a very fun car. BTW: i love the RS clios :D all renault RS models are astonishing! just ordered a megane 3 rs 250 last month :)

    Uhm.. good question. I think there are only slight differences in the interior (other seats) and a rev counter to 10k rpm for the 231hp model, also 5 vs 6 speed gearbox and AFAIK only the 231hp version has headlight washers.

  • Pandemonium Lig

    Strange coincidence but in this moment on parking lot in front of my apartment just to the right of my car ^^ (Sport Clio 2 RS1 Renault) it has of oone RX-8 red color and slightly tuned, it is very beautiful.
    How to know by seeing it if it is the 192 or the 231hp??

    @cal04450 That's because most people only judge sports cars in terms of acceleration, 0-60, top speed and so on. But that's just one side.. the most important part of a sports car is how it corner's, how it handles and how it allows the driver to position it into a corner to achieve maximum speed. Corners are what separates the boys from men and the powerful cars from fast cars.

  • Callan Klimtschuck
    Callan Klimtschuck 6 лет назад

    great job. I love my rotary... fast car, especially around the corners... i just hate how everyone compares their car to mine with 0-60 times!! If they could just understand that this car is fast in its own right... i really think its underrated as a sports car!

    @TCoops I got the concept of high-rev cars ;) I just messed up with that start. And yes.. it's really fun to drive. Much more corner-friendly than a 350Z!

  • T Coops
    T Coops 6 лет назад

    Neat car too. Driving is more than just dragging in a straight line(yawn), so arguing about microseconds on 0-100 times just becomes redundant. This thing looks great to corner! Really want to test one out

  • T Coops
    T Coops 6 лет назад

    rev higher before slipping off the clutch, feed the power on while maintaining high revs (feather it). Very important for little engines or engines lacking torque. You totally "bogged down" on that takeoff and could have launched faster. A v-8 it aint, you really gotta peg that narrow power band. That's the beauty of having a clutch- full utilization and control of the power delivery. Are motorcyclists the only people who get this concept?

    the fact is that stock rotaries lack low rev power and torque which is why they can't launch like other cars.

    6,5 feet. And I really don't feel comfortable in a Z4 because the wind-shield's top is at my eyes height ;) It's a great car though but a bit too small for me. My smart roadster offers a bit more space but is of course not as luxury and valuable as the z4.

  • passion:driving
    passion:driving 7 лет назад

    As already said: the car was nearly factory new and my start was shitty ;) But the main advantage to an z4 is: I do fit into the RX8 whilst driving in a Z4 is like sardins in a can ;-) And I drive a smart roadster :P

  • passion:driving

    So, it not rated as 2.6 "just because 231bhp from a 1.3 are not the norm". Otherwise you would have to say a turbo charged engine with 1.6l and 300bhp would need to be rated as a 3.0l "just because 300bhp are not normal for a 1.6l".

    Rated as 2.6 is just based on the fact that 2.6 is the cylinder capacity equivalent to the 1.3l rotary.

    But as already mentioned, in Germany it will be rated based on it's weight, because of the fact, that there is no cylinder capacity.

  • passion:driving
    passion:driving 7 лет назад

    Well.. it's actually not the same in Germany :D Since it is a rotary and therefore actually has no cylinder capacity (which cars in Germany are being taxed by) it is actually being taxed as a truck. That means it will be taxed on it's weight, so only double as high taxes as my smart :D Thats awesome!

    Anyhow: because it has no cylinder capacity (because there are no cylinders), it is rated as 2.6l in other countries.

  • Hajduk
    Hajduk 7 лет назад

    more like a 2.6 i read.

  • DruidB19
    DruidB19 7 лет назад

    Actually its worse on fuel than a modern 3.9l v6... When you compare it to piston engines its comparable to a 2.6L 4cyl due to its combustion cycle.. But the total volume is 3.9L..

    The reason posts like mine get thumbs down is that many people who love the Rotary don't like to hear the actual facts and prefer to pretend its a 1.3.. just like Mazda has been getting away with for years..

  • Bibazavr
    Bibazavr 7 лет назад

    Why would i give you thumbs down if you just told me new interesting information ?
    So it drains fuel as fast as 3.9 L ?

  • DruidB19
    DruidB19 7 лет назад

    If you determine the size of the rotary with the same formula used to determine the size of your polo's engine, you will find that the rotary is actualy a 3.9L engine..

    and before you give me a thumbs down go do some research of your own.

    Probably because it's only quick if you redline it, which means that unless you're driving it very hard, it's not going to feel quick. It does lack torque, however, it's still a nice car.

    Here is a good video demonstrating what I mean if my comment was not clear to some people.

    Since it is in Japanese, let me translate what each run is.

    1st run - DSC on
    2nd run - DSC off by just pressing the button (You can see it kick on as soon as he hits the brakes, the steering wheel snaps to the right)
    3rd run- DSC off by holding the button for 7 seconds
    4th run - Showing the difference in suspension between a normal RX8 and a Mazdaspeed RX8 (Spec-A) with DSC switched off entirely.

  • passion:driving
    passion:driving 8 лет назад

    Thanks for pointing this out!

  • Chris Biz
    Chris Biz 8 лет назад

    Pressing the button disables traction control and some of the DSC functions. This will allow you to do burn outs and drift the car. If you hold the button for 7 seconds, it will completely turn off DSC. Without holding the button, DSC will kick on when you start sliding with the brakes applied, but will keep it off if you slide with the gas on (drifting)

    In this video, the guy had TC off. If it was on, you would see the TC symbol flash above the tach when his tires started spinning at launch.
