Top 5 Mazda Sport Cars

So, without further ado, here are the Mazda sport cars themselves. Make sure to reach out with any questions!

  1. mazda sports carsMX-5 Miata Club: The MX-5 Miata Club wasn’t so much fast as it was quick – it could accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in just 6.1 seconds, due to its combination of lightweight materials and just-enough horsepower. Test drive the 2018 version of this trim level today at our PA dealership.
  1. Mazda 3 MPS: Next up, we’ve got the Mazda3 MPS (which stands for the Mazda Performance Series). Just like the previous entry, it could go from 0 all the way to 60 MPH in 6.1 seconds. However, due to a 2.3L 257-horsepower turbo-charged engine (as well as an enhanced lower suspension), it offered a little bit more speed than certain non-sports-line Mazda models.
  1. Mazda RX-7: 0 to 60 miles per hour in only 5.3 seconds. A top speed of 155 miles per hour. As much as 255 horsepower. With numbers like that, it’s a shame that they halted production of the Mazda RX-7 back in 2002. Yet it will still go down in the history books as one of the fastest sports cars.
  1. Mazda RX-7 Type-R: The Type-R variation surpasses the base model in acceleration, as its goes from 0-60 MPH in 5.1 seconds (shaving off a crucial 0.2 seconds). Plus, its horsepower is jacked up to 280 (a 25-horsepower increase). On the other hand, its top speed is consistent at 155 MPH.
  1. Mazda RX-7 Spirit R: Finally, we’ve arrived at the granddaddy of all Mazda sports cars…the world-famous Mazda RX-7 Spirit R. This limited edition vehicle went from 0 to 60 MPH in as little as 5 seconds, although it was only available on the Japanese market. Despite this (and the fact that production halted), you can drive it on the popular video game Need for Speed: Payback.

As you can see, Mazda features one of the fastest sports-car lineups of all time. However, that doesn’t mean that all of their lightning-fast hotrods are relics of the past. Contact us to learn about some of the current options, including the 2018 Mazda MX-5 Miata Sports Car and the Mazda RX-8. We’ll set you up with a test drive!
