The Mazda RX-7 is one of the most iconic Japanese cars of all time and is loved by many. Its rotary engine sets it apart from many other sports cars and it doesn’t look half bad as well. Donut Media has put together a video of everything about the RX-7. Check it out below.
Whether it’s the sound as it passes by or the sound of the petrol pump, the RX-7 is probably the coolest Japanese car of the 90’s. The RX-7 had been around for a number of years, but it wasn’t until the 90’s when the Hiroshima prefecture based car company turned there flagship into a masterpiece. It showed the world that there really was a replacement for displacement, even if it still used just as much fuel.
With 276 hp coming from its 1.3-litre turbocharged rotary engine, a low weight compared to its rivals (around 1,250kg) and a supreme chassis with balanced weight distribution, the RX-7 was a world better and an all time classic. Mazda’s successor to the RX-7, the RX-8 never captured the imagination of car enthusiasts like the RX-7 did. Maybe it was its family orientated feel, as opposed to the RX-7’s supreme looks and sporty credentials.
