A tipster writes in with juicy gossip for Mazda RX8 fans (Ben, are you listening?): A source attending a performance driving course at motorsports engineering firm Prodrive's campus near Banbury, a perk Mazda RX8 buyers in the UK receive with their purchase, says an official Mazda/Prodrive presentation included a notable announcement. According to a "senior Prodrive guy" Prodrive will tune 750 special-edition RX8s for Mazda, to be available sometime next year. "Mostly suspension and handling work," he said. While it's likely these cars will be UK-only (sorry, Ben), it does bode well for future projects that could be US-worthy. [Thanks to Phil for the tip.]
