Mazda RX8 Hydro Rotary Engine Update

As promised in my earlier post (Mazda RX8 Hydro Rotary Engine) here is some more information about them. Currently, Mazda has leased out four such vehicles in Japan, the latest two being to government authorities in Hiroshima.

Mazda RX-8 RENESIS Hydrogen Rotary

Gasoline Vs Hydrogen

Power: 206 hp, 107 hp

Torque: 222 Nm, 140 Nm

Fuel Tank Capacity: 16 Gallons, 350 bar

Range: 341 miles, 62.1 miles

Wish I could get my hands on one of these, pity Mazda only plans on giving them (6 more) to local government authorites in Japan. I am more than willing to take on such a project and drive a new hybrid car (any make) and put it to the test, as long as I would be allowed to give my honest impression of the vehicle.
