Gateway Classic Cars is presenting this 1988 Mazda RX7 GTU in the
Milwaukee Showroom. While there have been many marvels in
engineering among the modern automobile, none have been quite as
unique as the Wankel engine, also known as the rotary motor.
Beginning in the late 1800's the rotary engine had applications in
things as small as bicycles and evolution found the in motorcycles
in the early 1900's but it wasn't until the year 1929 that a German
engineer by the name of Felix Wankel developed a version of the
rotary engine that incorporated an eccentric rotary design. This
utilized an eccentric shaft that made a constant movement of a
triangular shaped rotor being propelled in the off space between
the rotor and the housing through the principle of combustion.
Mazda undertook the concept when they took up a study contract on
the Wankel in 1961 for automotive applications from the practical
all the way up to racing due to its extremely high revving
capabilities associated with the design of the engine. The fist RX7
was made the year 1978 and a cult following of one of the greatest
Japanese vehicles was born. This RX7 packs a 1.3 liter N/A rotary
under the hood which screams to high RPMs like no regular
combustion motor can. The unique piece of engineering is bolted to
a 5-speed transmission which offers the true feel of what it means
to drive a pinnacle of performance JDM history. This RX7 comes as a
GLU which means that all the trim and options that the turbocharged
model came with including a limited slip differential, this car
has...just minus the turbo. The RX7 is equipped with air
conditioning, AM/FM radio with Cassette, power brakes, power
steering, and a power sunroof to let a summers breeze in. Don't
pass up your chance to own a gorgeous and clean RX7 that has not
been butchered! This 1988 Mazda RX7 GTU is available at our
Milwaukee Showroom at Gateway Classic Cars and can be seen at

video. To see the car in person, it can be seen at our Milwaukee
