RX-7 Type X Twin Turbo.
We find a fair amount of customers prefer an original example of an RX-7, which lends itself better to daily use and lower insurance costs. As usual we target only those examples with very low genuine mileage. This Type X model's covered just 30,734 genuine miles from new!
This RX-7 is in stunning original condition. It's a rare Type X 5 Speed Manual model, which includes: Original lightweight Leather trimmed sports seats with matching rear seats, carpet, door trims and headlining. Electric steel sunroof, Bose Sound system complete with factory fitted bass system and CD/Cassette/Radio, Driver's SRS airbag, Cruise control, PAS, E/W, E/M, A/C, 3 channel ABS, original fitted mats, alloy sill trims with embossed "RX-7 logo". The original tool kit is complete and unused and includes the optional additional tool tray completely unused. Note the Bass reflex system can be removed as/when needed to make more boot space. The rear parcel shelf has holes either side to allow the bass speaker system to protrude through. Wheels fitted are 16" and of the same size as standard. Tyres are near new and of good quality. Please note - If preferred, we can also supply this car with original 16" wheels fitted instead - at no extra cost.
We can also supply other parts to enhance this example. Although nothing is required to improve it - we can supply Euro style clear front indicators for the front and 1996+ rear clusters to modernise the rear - inexpensively. If desired, we can also supply used 17" 18" alloy wheels as well as a sports exhaust system to be shipped with the car. If ordered before shipment this will avoid carriage costs. We also currently have some Veilside 18" Andrews Racing V alloy wheels, which would fit this car admirably!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 strongly - with good idle, no noticable flat spots, good strong brakes, good clutch, 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. Also noticed the suspension is firm and new in feel. No rattles at all, when travelling over bumps. Feels very tight.
Auction grade of this example is 3.5. The interior is in completely original condition. With no significant wear to the seats, aside from very minor creasing and wear of pigment to the vertical outer bolster on driver's seat, no wear to steering wheel, pedals or gear knob, these further confirm this car's genuine mileage. Note the driver's seat can be repaired with a reconolising service available at small extra cost - to make the seat look as new.
It's noticable the paintwork on this car's nearly completely original. Auction sheets shows the bonnet the rear quarters have previously been repainted.
As pictures will show, the exterior is in excellent 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: There are some scratches to the front plastic lip spoiler. There's a light pin dent on the o/s quarter. Also one on the front o/s wheel arch. Also, there's a paint chip from the edge of the front bumper (See picture). If the full package is chosen, these minor bodywork imperfections will all be repaired to high quality so they're not visible and the front bumper will be resprayed also but faults are mentioned and photographed to clearly depict the condition of the car as it is prior to repair.
This RX-7 has clearly been hardly used throughout it's life. It's rare to find an older RX-7 with such low genuine mileage in the condition shown and the improvements included. Clearly 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 reliable, good looking RX-7. Also being of very low mileage and with no modifications, you can expect this example to give around 40,000 miles of reliable motoring and retain it's value strongly.
RX-7's in as original 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 (35,000 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.
