Widebody Pandem Kit Now For RX-8

TRA Kyoto fashions fresh body mods for Mazda’s last rotary sports car

Aug 24, 2017

As much as we’ve grown tired and maybe even a little bored with TRA Kyoto’s Rocket Bunny and now Pandem widebody kits, we simply can’t look away, especially when a new one drops. And guess what? A new one has indeed debuted, this time for Mazda’s final rotary sports car, the RX-8, as we learned from the Pandem Rocket Bunny TRA Kyoto Facebook page.

Like several versions of the kit, the RX-8 system includes a rear diffuser, side skirts, and front and rear fenders, but from there it deviates with what looks like a multi-piece front lip spoiler and rear aero that includes both duck tail trunk-lid spoiler and rear GT wing. The rendering from TRA Kyoto also illustrates the car on 6666 Customs wheels.

As far as we can tell the kit isn’t yet available for American consumers, but you can bet when it is Greddy will add it to its already extensive lineup that includes versions for the Nissan S chassis (S13, S14, S15), S30, R32, R35, Z33; Lexus RC; Scion FR-S/Toyota 86; Mazda FD3S RX-7, NA and ND MX-5 Miata; Honda EG Civic, S2000, and NSX; Porsche Cayman; VW Golf Mark 2 and Mark 7; and BMW E30, E36, and E46. And if we’re being honest, these things always look hella sexy when they first come out. Now it’s up to the RX-8 community to make us sick of them (again).
