Mazda RX-7


n 1978, Mazda introduced the or “Savanna” as it was known in the Japanese to compete with Nissan’s “Z” and Porsche’s 924. Although somewhat underpowered, the smooth rotary engine and superb made the RX-7/Savanna a favorite sports car enthusiasts.

The most and controversial feature of the RX-7 was the 100 1146 cc Wankel rotary Originally designed by German Wankel while working at the design was seen by many as the of the internal combustion engine. But were problems with consumption and emissions that many car manufacturers away the design when both of elements were getting federal and state (provincial) in North America.

Mazda licensed the design NSU/Wankel and began working to fix the problems which also rotor apex seal and wear, oil leakage, and manufacturing Mazda was able to solve the leakage and emissions issues, but economy and the manufacturing cost to be issues. Mazda used the in several of their cars, but the built between 1978 and consumed the majority of the Wankels built.

Mazda made generations of the RX-7/Savanna. the First from 1979 through the Second Generation from through 1992 and the Third from 1993 through AUTOart has brought us the First RX-7/Savanna in typical Japanese with right-hand drive and fender-mounted rear view

The First Generation RX-7’s might be considered “restrained”, slab sides, positive wheels and understated wheel To get a feeling for this, picture a librarian with granny a tightly-wrapped bun of hair and a cameo pin on the collar of her blouse. That, much, gives you a feeling for the created by the First Generation’s

Although there were Gen1 IMSA race that seemed to shake image, it really wasn’t the Third Generation car in 1993 the librarian was allowed to remove her tousle her hair and unbutton a of buttons of her blouse when gave us a car with a sensual, shape and moves to go along its new looks. But by this time, the price for the car had skyrocketed and it appealed to a different and smaller market it had in its Gen1 configuration.

From the front, with its headlights and 10 mph bumper, the First RX-7/Sevanna is very reminiscent of the 924. The rear features an glass hatch with quarter windows. In the cabin, are two primary seats for the driver and and two “occasional” seats that are suited for very small

These “occasional” seats standard in the home market and in export versions. These can be folded down to enlarge the area”.

AUTOart’s RX-7/Savanna captures the of the little car beautifully. AUTOart’s to execute the fine details on the trim, lensing and glazing is strong suit. The shut are tight and even. The way they the castings for paint is exceptional and I remember any AUTOart product, this one, that had parting lines anywhere on the body castings. The paint, in case a medium metallic is smooth and flawlessly applied.

details like the Mazda and the small trumpet on the steering center are perfect. The glass-covered look as realistic as any I’ve If you look close, you can, much, read the shift on the gear shift knob is a 5-speed!). Then take a at the outside lock cylinder a strong magnifying glass…… you can see the gasket, the outside trim the inner lock barrel and the key all on a piece that is the size of a of sand !

The engine bay has an abundance of detail, the hoses and wires to get the job done…. all well executed for a model in price range. A little bit of a the underside of the model is done in two a matte black and a flat

One problem that I’ve had this production sample is the pop-up headlights and the rear-opening seem to interfere with other’s operation and the trailing of the hood doesn’t want to into the rest of the bodywork. I guess that this is to this sample as AUTOart is conscientious about making body panels fit.

Overall, this is a very piece for the person that had an RX-7/Savanna, or just liked the This is a nicely-done model and I confident in recommending it.
