RX8 2002 vs JC COSMO 1991

Discussion in '2002 Mazda RX-8' started by bakkistaner, May 7, 2003.

  1. I love both.
    Some stats for the cosmo:
    Stock 1991 Mazda 20B triple Rotor (300bhp)
    Twin Sequential Turbo Chargers
    Intercooler
    260 kph (185 kph electronic cut out)
    1/4 mile 14.1 sec
    It’s the worlds first series production engine employing a twin “sequential” turbo system & has resulted in an amazing level of torque from it’s 1962 cc capacity. With over 390 nm available from as little as 2200 rpm, the 402 nm peak at 3000 rpm drops by less than 10% at the 7000 rpm Redline.

    Let me know wich you think is the best, nicest, coolest etc.

    Some pictures of the cosmo since it isnt here at supercars.net

    I guess the Cosmo is more of a luxury car, but still, both are 4 seaters, and have SWEET rotary engines.

    The Cosmo is an awesome car, but I would still probably choose an RX-8 over a Cosmo mostly for the fact that is is newer and it has more of a sportier persona as opposed to the Cosmos more luxury grand tourer style. Hell if I could I would have both <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    i'd take the Cosmo even if its more then a decade older.

    cosmos rock!!! those cars are the most underated ever

    a while ago i drove a RX-3 with a cosmo 20B and OH MY GOD THE TORQUE... it'd lay hundreds of feet of rubber through first to third gear from 1500rpm-7500+.
    there were no mods other than two larger turbos for a bigger blow at both low and high revs + something done to the fuel system.
    later the guy dropped in a supra six speed box too. that would have been a killer road car then!

    14psi would kick in at 2000rpm!

    Two totally different cars.
    I would take a Series 8 RX7 with a Twin Turbo 20B Triple Rotor.<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>

    Then you get the frame of Japan's best cornering machine, and the heart of the most powerful rotary beast =D

    The JC Cosmo 1991 was only RHD if I recall right, so the the RX8 would be my choice....
