1992 Mazda RX-7 Type R Twin Turbo. Stunning Low Mileage & Unmarked Condition!
Share this Vehicle
RX-7 Type R Twin Turbo.
This stunning RX-7 is amongst the very best examples we’ve found in the last year. With only 28,346 genuine miles from new, this is an example that is in virtually perfect condition combined with an engine having around 40,000 miles before a rebuild is due. Improvements are mostly cosmetic, making this RX-7 insurance company friendly and entirely usable as a daily driver.
RE-Amemiya Ad Facer II skirts extending to widened rear arches with rear valence extensions are combined with a D-Speed rear wing. The rear light clusters have been changed to 1996 – 2002 types. Wheels are original Volk Racing forged lightweight items of 17" size, with Bridgestone Potenza RE711 sports tyres of size 235/45/ZR17 front 265/40/ZR17 rear. The rims are virtually unmarked and as new. As this car’s had little use, the tyres have aged however. Although legal for MOT, they’re harder than when new and a little cracked, so in the interests of safety and enjoyment of this car, we’ll be replacing them with new items of the owner’s choice, up to a value of £380.00 in the UK (Note: Newera Parts can also find other used wheels and tyres such as BBS LM’s in Japan – to fit before shipment).
A large bore RE-Amemiya stainless steel exhaust system is fitted from the catalyst - back. As it's not a straight through canister type, this is a quieter item, ideal for daily use - yet not restrictive on power. The standard air filter is of a good design (Cold air box). This has been improved with a Mazdaspeed sports panel filter. The ECU is a standard item, running around 0.8 Bar boost. These minor mods combined give around 270 bhp - combined with the exhaust. Inside, a turbo timer is installed with double sided tape to the underside of the plastic trim (driver's side). This can be re-sited or removed completely if preferred. A Mazdaspeed sports shift kit is fitted, to slightly reduce the throw from each gear change.
White face Mazdaspeed gauges have replaced the original cluster. In July 2000 at 34,076 km, these were fitted and documented. Therefore the currently displayed mileage reads 11,532km. This total of 45,608 km will be recalibrated to show the total distance covered in miles, once the car’s converted in the UK. For a 1992 RX-7,genuine mileage like this is very low. It’s absolutely genuine too, as the engine bay, lack of brake disc interior wear, etc. serve to confirm.
Original equipment includes: Twin oil coolers (best for keeping oil within the safe operating temperature even under hard use), original lightweight sports seats trimmed in alcantara suede, 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. A factory option rear parcel shelf is also fitted.
We test drove this RX-7 thoroughly for handling, acceleration and braking, and found it drives absolutely faultlessly. Suspension is supple and sports like, with no rattles, squeaks, etc. from the interior. Engine and a complete mechanical integrity check was carried out. There are no faults at all to report at all. 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. 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 without modification. 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.
The interior is unworn, as to be expected of a low mileage car. The interior is in completely original condition. Seats are in good condition with no holes, cigarette burns, etc. Being a non smoker’s car since new, there’s no ashtray. Instead, there’s a useful cubby box with padding, ideally placed for resting the elbow on. In the boot, the carpet is marked with 4 small holes from where a CD changer has previously been fitted. Being an early model, the interior panels are factory painted in matt black and there are some inevitable scratches on these. We can supply a set of later model plastics to go with this car very inexpensively, or better still, why not treat it to a carbon fibre interior trim kit from Mazdaspeed! Available at discount from Auction grade is 4. The exterior has recently been treated to a very high quality respray, to restore the original finish to as new. It’s clear the bodywork beneath is in good condition too, with no wavyness down each side which clearly shows the car was dent free (Well looked after) prior to work being carried out. As red pigment tends to fade over a long period of time in climates with intense strong sunlight heat, this is the reason the car’s paintwork has been recently restored. It’s amongst the highest quality resprays we’ve come across. 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 spoiler has some minor scratches beneath the black paint. There is just one pin dent by the radio antenna (which we will try to repair through the service of a specialist when it arrives to our workshops). Both bumpers were unpainted, so these will be resprayed perfectly during preparation. Whilst we’re at it, we will also be replacing all the badges on the car with 1999 spec. items. We currently have stock of rare original used 1999 facelift front bumpers and indicators, with uprated ’99 front spoilers at just £350.00 + £95.00 for the lights (Original). Carbon fibre style indicator clusters are also available. This is the best bumper type available, especially as it’s made of polyeurethane and not FRP (Resists stone chips!) This would bring the looks of this car right up to date, so we have reserved one for this car – available as an option.
This RX-7 has clearly been cherished and hardly used throughout it's life so far!! It's rare to find an older RX-7 with such low genuine mileage and stunning condition with chosen cosmetic extras. This car presents itself as a jaw dropping combination! Clearly this car has been owned by a fastidiously fussy Japanese person. Total cost of wheels, tyres, exhaust, aero parts in Japan totals approx. £3,000 - excluding fitting. The entire respray has recently cost the last owner around £2,500 too. The main points about this car are of course it's genuine low mileage and stunning condition throughout. As this is not a significantly 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. 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, fresh oil and filter change, registration, road tax, new MOT and a year's comprehensive warranty this car is available for A deposit of £1,000 secures this car for shipment.
