RX-7 Type R Twin Turbo.
Here at Newera Imports, we seek out the very best examples only. For RX-7's we pay particular importance to mileage and genuine condition. This fine example of an RX-7 has been beautifully looked after and covered just 36,136 genuine miles from new.
Once you completely understand a rotary, it makes a lot of sense. Vibration is much less than a conventional Piston engine. It's also a much lighter power plant, which makes a lot of sense again. Why carry a heavy weight at the front of a car if you don't have to? The RX-7 was engineered to be very light - even as far as making the jack from aluminium. Suspension arms are made from aluminium and it's a double wishbone design on each corner. Weight distribution is perfect at 50/50. Having no valves, pistons, etc. they're also much more easily tuned to get more power - although it's important to know what you're doing when tuning these. Contrary to general (un-informed) belief, the engines don't expire at low mileage - if well looked after. A standard tune engine should see 70,000 miles - some of the examples we have supplied are nearing 80,000 miles and still going well. Rebuilds are also easy and not as costly as people perceive - available in the UK from £2,000 - which then gives another 70,000 miles plus. Our own RX-7 is driven hard each time it goes out - often on racetracks, but comes back for more each time. After trying every Japanese sports car out here, to us - the RX-7 has stood above the rest as the sports car offering the most entertainment, best handling and most rewards for capable driving. The Japanese have plenty of very experienced specialists - the UK has a handful only. In order to understand these deeply, we tuned our own to our requirements, so we feel we know these cars extremely well and can therefore consistently hand-pick the very best examples available for each of our customers. Newera's solid reputation is build on this.
This is a completely original example, ideal for a younger driver who wants a car for daily use and doesn't want the extra insurance loading from a modified example - or for someone more mature who doesn't want a modified car, but still wants a car he can use every day, that will give excellent performance and reliability.Original equipment includes: Original option 17" BBS alloy wheels fitted with near new Bridgestone Potenza SO-3's of size 235/45/ZR17 255/40/ZR17, front and rear original strut braces, alloy "RX-7" sill step plates, twin oil coolers (best for keeping oil within the optimum operating temperature), original lightweight alcantara suede sports seats, rear seats incl. seatbelts, PAS, P/W, AC, 3 channel ABS, original fitted mats. The original tool kit is complete and unused and includes the optional additional tool tray. Spare tyre is also unused. A factory option rear parcel shelf is also fitted. Hifi is an original option CD/Cassette/Radio unit. Audio comes complete with the car, free of charge.
We test drove this RX-7 thoroughly for handling, acceleration and braking, and found it drives 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 5.5 seconds and a top speed of 160 mph. Handling is also amongst the very best available, with double wishbone alloy suspension on each corner. By far the best suspension available for production cars - and very rare except on the most exotic. Although the ECU is 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 without major modification. It's making approx. 265 bhp as is. Oil pressure is good. 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 in completely original condition and confirms the mileage is very low for the lack of use it's had since new. This has also always been a non smoker's car. There are no faults to report on the interior aside from some scratches and small dents to the alloy sill plates. This is from people having got in and out over the years. New sill plates may still be available, alternatively we can also supply the new carbon fibre sill plates inexpensively from FEED (Fujita Engineering).

In superb condition throughout, the red paint is still in as new condition. It's evident that this RX-7 has been garaged since new and not been driven hard at all! There are no stone chips to the front whatsoever, brake discs also look new and unworn, which to us is a good indication it's been driven carefully and always at legal speeds. It's also still got the original speed restrictor fitted (To be removed when preparing this car in UK).
As with all the cars we stock, to check it thoroughly we washed and checked the bodywork on this car and found only minor faults as follows: Passenger door has 3 minor pin dents. There are 2 tiny pin dents on the n/s/f wing. The rear bumper has been touched in at some point (o/s corner) and there is a single pin dent on the o/s quarter. The laquer on the bonnet is peeling slightly too. All these faults will be taken care of as part of UK preparation to present this car to our usual high standards of quality.
RX-7's in as beautiful condition as this combined at an affordable price are extremely hard to find, even in Japan. Clearly this example was cherished by it's single owner and rarely used! The engine is in fine health with high oil pressure and nearly new oil. The turbos are healthy and this car gives perfect starting every time. From test drive - 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 (40,000 miles to go!) For complete peace of mind, a comprehensive Motorcare warranty (same cover as with a new car, essentially) will be supplied with this car. Amongst full cover, it also covers rotor tips and water seals.
As this is not a tuned example, it can be used for daily driving is also affordable to insure by younger drivers wanting a beautiful looking original 3rd Generation RX-7.
