Up for sale is this stunningly beautiful example of the
otherworldly third generation Mazda RX7.
This is a one owner, high mileage, modified and well maintained example of the twin turbo rotary powered Mazda FD sports car. Equipped with JDM non sequential turbos, Greddy intake and intercooler, cat delete, a locker rear end and other go fast goodies. Pro tuned to 400 horsepower. This car is brutally fast.
Its also in excellent cosmetic condition with only a few areas of wear. So many of these cars have interiors that are literally falling apart. Not this one. And the respray was done to a high standard a few years ago and presents very, very well. The Enkei GTSpec wheels are rare and look great on this car. Stowed in the spare well is the business end of a killer sound system
Unlike other Japanese two seaters of the day, the RX7 was never really considered a sports touring car. It was and is a pure sports car that is more Viper than Vette. It is loud, firm, and can be a handful to the uninitiated; under heavy foot its either pure adrenaline or cause for a change of panties, depending on where you are seated.
This car is in good working order with the exception of the AC which is an R12 system that will need to be sorted and charged or converted to R134. If driven with restraint this car is generally tractable around town, but good luck with that. Under spool this thing is absolutely addictive and requires your full and undivided attention.
Japanese cars of this era are gaining interest among enthusiasts and collectors, seeing strong appreciation in the market. Buying at current levels in any condition, so long as they are not abused or wrecked should make for a solid (and very fun) investment.
This Mazda RX7 is located in Rowlett, Texas and can be viewed by appointment. Sold as is where is. Texas residents may be subject to tax and fees. If the ad is running the car is available. Sales assistants, low ballers and scammers need not apply. Call, text or email. Thanks for your interest!!

There are a few Japanese cars that changed the way we think about small sports cars. The first was the Datsun 240Z, the car that hurried along the demise of the British and Italian sports car brands.
Mazda will show five historic vehicles alongside two 2016 models at the 11th annual Japanese Classic Car Show this weekend in Long Beach, California.
Eighteen of the greatest Japanese sports cars will be on display at the Simeone Automotive Museum in Philadelphia as part of a special exhibit, the Best of Japan.
Some Japanese sports cars are gaining leverage with car collectors, but others, not so much. Production models such as Datsun 240Z and Toyota Supra are rising in value and appreciation, and the limited-production Toyota 2000GT regularly hits a million dollars at auction.
