(from Mazda Press Release) In true
superhero fashion, the aggressively styled Mazda RX-8 X-MEN Car, based
on the production model 2004 Mazda RX-8, possesses its own unique super
power-in this case, the new generation rotary engine RENESIS. In
addition, its dominant presence is accentuated by an impenetrable Mutant
Blue exterior which includes an X-shaped grille, a fierce rear spoiler
and an enlarged trademark "X" on the vehicle's nameplate.
On the inside, the Mazda RX-8 X-MEN Car is trimmed in imposing silver
and black shades, including the door trim, seats and steering wheel. A
communication device is prominently displayed on the upper center
X2 director Brian Singer worked closely with Mazda on the RX-8 X-MEN Car
in a unique collaboration to bring the Mazda RX-8, the company's brand
icon, to the big screen with a starring role in the film. Singer revised
the movie's original script to accommodate the vehicle.
