Years after the RX-7 was discontinued, the RX-8 was overshadowed by the beautiful timeless appearance, and rotary power that the RX-7 provided. However, the RX-8 is still something that can be appreciated today for what it is, even after being discontinued for nearly 10 years now. Recently our friend Zakin was hanging out at the Kaita port in Hiroshima, and was able to shoot Ei Sugimoto‘s 2008 Sunlight Silver Metallic RX-8 from Osaka, Japan.

Ei’s gave their late model RX-8 a very simple and clean look using the RE-Amemiya front grill, and painting accents on the car.

The Work Lanvec LM7 work really well on here. Running 18×11+3 in the front and rear with Hankook Ventus V12 245/35R18 tires.

The rear looks great with the Leg Motorsports rear diffuser and Good Gun ducktail spoiler.
