MAZDA RX-7 Used Car Review

In 1978 Mazda continued its love affair with the distinctive piston-less rotary engine with the RX-7 - a compact, rear-wheel-drive sports car. The RX-7 combined great handling with the famously smooth and high-revving engine to establish a classic, especially in third-generation guise. Its reputation wasn't harmed by local success in the Bathurst 12-hour endurance race, when it won three successive events from 1992 to 1994.

Pros

Cons

  • Fantastic, high-revving performance
  • Great balance of power, grip, handling and braking
  • Low-rev punch of twin-turbo rotary engine
  • A classic Japanese sports car
  • Rotary engine's thirst for fuel/oil and susceptibility to wear
  • Boot not very practical
  • Second-generation model more GT than sports car
  • Good used examples are fairly expensive

I won’t reply unless you show you actually are in the market for one of these unique collector cars. I have owned this car for 4 years now and has been a significant part of my life. A lot of hard work has gone into this car. The RS model is one of the premium model Rx7’s and comes factory with bigger brakes (324mm all round), stronger drivetrain, lighter weight (1260kg),

Beginning with the Cosmo of 1966, Mazda has been the only major manufacturer to persist with Felix Wankel’s revolutionary rotary engine design and early models such as the R100 and RX-2/RX-3 enjoy a cult following today. It took until the launch of a proper sports car, the RX-7, in 1978 for the rotary to find a home more appropriate to its high-revving characteristics; the first generation model received rave reviews and proved a commercial success, with over half a million sold.
