Rags to riches 1993 Mazda RX-7

Posted on October 12, 2010 by David Allen

Just by looking at the images of the beautifully built Mazda RX-7, it is hard to imagine the condition that the car was in when the current owner bought it in 2006! But despite having a burnt out wiring harness, blown engine, body panel damage and some of the dash missing, today the car looks like a dream machine that has been modified from new. It just goes to show what a bit of hard work can do.

This is a 1993 third generation model, it uses the 13B rotary engine, which as shows is merely a 1.3 litre engine, but this is a Wankel rotary engine capable of delivering well over 250 HP with the help of the sequential twin turbo charger arrangement. This of course is what makes these cars so popular with drivers and import builders too.

Even though there has been a lot of work been put into this car, it is clear that this is still a Mazda RX-7 and that is so important to keep the lines of the original car, of course additions will be made such as side skirts and air dams. However, once that beautiful red paint is applied the whole project has taken shape and we get to see this fantastic car in its finished glory.

To say that this car required some work is an understatement, but it is builders like Ben Abutin with the vision and around $30,000 to spend on this project that can make something like this happen. The amazing thing about this car is although it is a show vehicle, it is driven to each event and that just goes to show the spirit of the builder and his fantastic Mazda RX-7.
