Mazda rolls out 100,000th RX-8

The 100,000th Mazda RX-8 has rolled off the Ujina final assembly in Japan.

The milestone was achieved 18 months after production began in April 2003.

The RX-8 reached the UK in October 2003 by which time almost 2,000 had already been pre-ordered. Mazda Motors UK has now sold over 9,600 Mazda RX-8s since it was launched and is the biggest European market for the car for September with a record-breaking 1,400 sales for the month. Globally 70,000 units were sold to the end of August 2004 including in excess of 18,000 units in Europe.
