Mazda RX-7 Series 6-8/RX-8/Cosmo

Late-series rotary Mazdas spent a long time at the bottom of a deep, dark value slump before undergoing a sudden surge. Blame for rapid price growth is often levelled at demand from the USA but in the case of late-model RX-7s this seems not to be the case.

US price guides quote landed values for S8s at US$27,000- 34,000 which should put excellent S8s into our market at A$60-70,000. However, as recent auction results have confirmed, most manage $80,000 and Spirit ‘R’ versions can exceed $100,000.

Locally sold Series 6 coupes are climbing too and can exceed $75,000. If you want a lower-priced, interesting rotary, check the tri-rotor Eunos Cosmo or for a cheap family/track day ride, grab an RX8 at $12-15,000.
