RX-7 Type R Twin Turbo 1999 Full Aero.
This is only the 2nd 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 14,553 genuine miles from new!
Bodywork: This RX-7 has been fitted with an original Polyeurethane plastic 1999+ model's front bumper, bumper stay, original sidelight indicator units, front lip spoiler and adjustable original 1999 rear spoiler too. Paintwork quality is superb. Note the bodywork is so immaculate there's not even a pin dent or ripple to be found. Note the original stone chip coating on the nearside is dirty and has some grime on it. We only noticed this after taking the pictures, but in any case - this is easily cleaned off with polish!
Modifications: All parts fitted are recent and in almost brand new condition: Super Advan Generation II split rim lightweight forged alloy wheels with black spokes and red trim beneath new stainless steel bolts. These have been taken apart for painting, then lovingly re-assembled. A sign of the level of care this car's had. Tyres are nearly new Yokohama DNA Grand Prix of size 235/40ZR17 front and 255/40ZR17 rear. Exhaust is a Kakimoto Racing Regu 92 Db-Z with a main 80mm section and 100mm tailpipe. As it has a silenced mid section, this is a quiet system - with rac looks. Quality is high, as usual from Kakimoto. Suspension is TEIN Super Street - High quality kit, complete with bottom adjustable ride height - which means you can set this car for soft or hard preload with the same ride height. Suspension is fully adjustable - but currently set to firm, yet supple road settings. Brake pads are Endless CC-X carbon metallic compound - for excellent fade free braking. The intake tubing and elbow have been replaced with alloy items from Fujita Engineering - RX-7 specialists in Japan.Interior modifications: An Omori water temp gauge on the A-Pilar, plus an Ultra turbo timer / turbo monitor. Steering wheel is a Momo "Race" item and there's a Razo carbon and alloy gear knob. Hifi includes a 45W x 4 Alpine head unit with CD / Radio. Please note: Interior electronics are supplied free of charge with this car. Note the original steering wheel and inlet piping are in the boot of the car.
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 includes the optional additional tool tray. Note the original lightweight forged alloy wheel and alloy lightweight jack. Mazda went to high levels to make FD3S's very light! A factory option rear parcel shelf is also fitted. Original documentation shows this car was previously exported, then brought back into Japan by it's single previous keeper. As part of re-registration, an additional number was stamped on the n/s suspension turret and Japanese documentation amended to show a re-import.Further Tuning Improvements: 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 an Apexi Power FC ECU Controller, boost controller or other modifications to be shipped with the car, to avoid carriage costs. Please check / inquire on www.neweraparts.com
Mechanicals and test drive: 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 design as standard - further enhanced in this case - with TEIN Super street coilover suspension.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 not just still working, but is also corrosion free and much like new - 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. This RX-7 twin turbo pulls very well indeed - with good idle, etc. Engine and a complete mechanical integrity check was carried out. It drives much like a new car and performance is excellent, once again reminding us of how good these cars are, even as standard. Of course, 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.We found 2 minor faults to note which will need repairing as part of full UK our workshop. The heater fan doesn't work. Could be a fuse, we haven't checked - as it's unlikely to be a failed motor on a car of such low mileage. Could even be a disconnected switch, if the previous owner removed another hifi before sale. Also, after driving, if reversing and braking hard, there's a noise from the front o/s suspension. Likely to be something not assembled correctly after fitting the (recent) new TEIN suspension. We will investigate this and repair as part of full OTR preparation.
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. This has been a non smoker's car and still smells much like new. Auction Grade is 4 for this car (Auction sheet is available). 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 only the following TINY faults to report!: One stone chip (touched in already) on the n/s/f wing. One stone chip on the bonnet one stone chip on the o/s quarter. There's a light blemish on the o/s quarter too, a result of over zealous polishing - hardly noticable. Finally, the door mirrors have lost their shine. Although we will not respray any of the panels, the 3 minor stone chips will be touched in professionally and the door mirrors resprayed if the full OTR package is chosen below, to present the car ready to drive fully completed.
This RX-7 has clearly been cherished and hardly used throughout it's life. Underneath there’s no corrosion - it's like a new car throughout! 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. 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 (50,000 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, UK registration, road tax, new MOT, minor repairs to front lip spoiler rubber plus a year's comprehensive warranty this car is available for OTR price: £9,450. Alternatively, we can supply without UK preparation (Will be easy to DIY as there's no SVA required) at only £8,650.
This car is due to arrival to Southampton 2nd week of October. A deposit of £1,000 secures. Please Contact us to obtain full information on this RX-7, or to have us find one to your requirements!
