Being the successor to the great Mazda RX7, the Mazda RX8 followed in 2003 using the same rotary engine that has been perfected over the years. Unfortunately modern emission regulations seem to have killed off this extremely popular power plant which is a great shame. Keith Michaels have successfully been providing Mazda insurance for a quarter of a century and would be delighted to look at providing you with Mazda RX8 insurance.
The rotary engine is the heart of the Mazda RX8 and with a displacement of a mere 1.3 litres and turbocharging, manages to produce a very respectable 230bhp. This is a front engine, rear wheeled drive 4 seat coupe, which has a defined target market of enthusiast drivers who want reliability, performance and something a little bit different – for example, the ‘freestyle’ doors. The use of lightweight materials such as aluminium and plastics and its 50:50 weight distribution make for a very rapid and lively car. Once you have mastered the tight torque band in the rev range, the car is a joy and reaches the red line with ease.
Mazda RX8 Changes
In 2008 there were slight revisions to the car with bodywork, suspension and gearing upgrades which Mazda claim made the car that little bit quicker. Although Mazda made very few changes to the car during its production life, there are quite a few after- market modifications available for the car, and we are happy to cover these under our Mazda RX8 insurance. If you visit our Japanese car insurance pages you will see that we have an extensive knowledge of all Japanese cars, both UK models and imports.

I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
