The 2016 version of the RX8 was a long time in the making. Planning, research, testing, and ingenuity… all of these were combined to bring the RX8 to an entirely new level of performance. Crucial strategic decisions were made and acted on to accommodate new changes & rules in the 1/8 on-road class.

Development at XRAY never stops, nor does our pursuit of perfection. Evolving the RX8 to its present state has been a challenge for me and everyone at XRAY, and this new, re-designed version of the RX8 incorporates all the best features and ideas gathered over the past years. The long wait is over, behold the all-new RX8.

Martin Hudy

Manufactured from premium European materials, machined using state of the art Swiss and German machines and backed by premium service & support, the RX8 is a typical XRAY, a luxury masterpiece.
