RX-7 Type R - 1999 Spec. bodywork & Paint!
This is the first 1999 replica RX-7 that we have managed to source in over 2 years combined with being in immaculate genuine low mileage condition! This car's covered just 30,520 genuine miles from new!
This RX-7 has been fitted with an original Polyeurethane plastic 1999+ model's front bumper, plastic front lip spoiler and adjustable rear spoiler too. The front indicator sidelight units are not original, but replicas of good quality. The car was previously red, but has been recently colour changed to Mazda's original metallic blue colour, as introduced on RX-7's from 1999 to the end of production in 2002. Quallity of paintwork is excellent. The door shuts, underside of each door, as well as sills, etc were repainted, leaving only the engine bay and other concealed areas such as the spare wheel well and tool compartments in original colour.
Alloy wheels are of 17" size, with sports tyres of size 235/45/ZR17 255/40/ZR17. Tyres are in good condition. Also the alloy rims are in excellent condition with only very minor scratches on the left side rims. Suspension is of standard spec. The ECU and tuning is of standard specification, running at standard 0.75 Bar boost, giving around 265 bhp. Inside, a turbo timer complete with a harness to fit - is located inside the glove box but is not connected. This can be re-sited or left off, as preferred.
Original equipment includes: Twin oil coolers (best for keeping oil within the safe operating temperature), original lightweight Alcantara sports seats, PAS, E/W, E/M, A/C, 3 channel ABS, original fitted mats. The original tool kit is complete and unused and includes the optional additional tool tray completely unused. A factory option rear parcel shelf is also fitted. Note that there is no hifi currently fitted. The original cage and hifi surround are there. To make fitting a hifi in the UK very easy - we recommend using a DIN kit available from Halfords. Alternatively we can supply one if not available in UK. Hifi units are also available inexpensively and can be fitted before shipment.
Please note we can also supply other parts to enhance this example. We have new wet carbon fibre front lip spoilers in stock, as well as Fujita Engineering wet carbon side skirts (As fitted to our own demo car). Carbon is preferable to FRP, as it doesn’t stone chip and also looks excellent! If desired, we can also supply a sports exhaust system to be shipped with the car, to avoid carriage costs. Please check / inquire on www.neweraparts.com
The engine is a genuine low mileage unit that has clearly not been tuned or pushed hard during it’s life. Oil has been recently changed and the car shows all signs of having been regularly serviced (Spark plugs are also nearly new). On older RX-7's the air pumps usually fail, especially on higher mileage examples - this one is still working just as it should be. Another good sign of a genuine low mileage example. We test drove this RX-7 thoroughly for handling, acceleration and braking, and found it drove absolutely faultlessly. Engine and a complete mechanical integrity check was carried out. There are no faults at all to report and the car feels tight and rattle free. With a car of such low weight, standard power is plenty with 0-60 in 5 seconds and a top speed of 160 mph. Handling is also amongst the very best available combined with double wishbone alloy suspension as standard.This RX-7 twin turbo pulls very well indeed - with good idle, etc. It drives much like a new car and performance is excellent, once again reminding us of how good these cars are, even as standard. No smoke on start up and it idles well, giving an excellent spread of power throughout the rev range, with strong power from around 2,500 rpm all the way to the red line. Perfect.
The interior is in completely original condition. With no significant wear to the seats, steering wheel, pedals or gear knob, these further confirm this car's genuine mileage. The only fault we found inside are two small marks on the driver's seat (See picture). As pictures will show, the exterior is in superb condition throughout. As with all the cars we stock, to check it thoroughly we washed and checked the bodywork on this car and found the following faults to report: The front plastic spoiler has some minor scratches on the corners. There is one pin dent on the passenger door. This will be professionally repaired. Also there are some scratches to the o/s bumper corner. On the passenger side door mirror there are a couple of small chips which need to be touched in. These are very small minor faults, but each will be repaired as part of the total n present this car to our usual high standards. We noticed the n/s rear quarter has been repaired before, although quality of repair is excellent and not visible to the untrained eye. Auction grade of this car was 3.5 due to age and colour change. A Copy of the auction sheet is available.
This RX-7 has clearly been cherished and hardly used throughout it's life. Underneath there’s no corrosion. It's rare to find an older RX-7 with such low genuine mileage in the condition shown and the improvements included. Clearly this car has been owned by a fastidious Japanese person it’s evident it's been well looked after. Total cost of wheels, tyres, 1999 original aero parts and a complete respray in Japan totals approx. £4,500. As this is not an extremely tuned example, it can be used for daily driving is also affordable to insure by younger drivers wanting a special looking Rex!
RX-7's in as beautiful condition as this combined at an affordable price are extremely hard to find, even in Japan. The engine is in fine health with high oil pressure, healthy turbos and perfect starting every time. It's producing an excellent spread of power - perfectly healthy and with plenty of life to give with mileage this low, before an engine refresh at around 75,000 miles (45,000 miles to go!) For complete peace of mind, a comprehensive 12 month warranty (same cover as with a new car, essentially) will be supplied with this car also covering rotor tips and water seals.
Including full UK conversions, de-restriction and recalibration of odometer to miles, registration, road tax, new MOT and a year's comprehensive warranty this car is available for OTR price: £8,650. A deposit of £1,000 secures this car for shipment. Please Contact us to obtain full information on this RX-7, or to have us find one to your requirements!
