RX-7 Type R Bathurst Twin Turbo.






This is one of the sweetest and best condition RX-7's we have sourced for stock so far in 2005!
With genuine mileage this low and condition to back it up, this is an extremely special example, in our opinion. Equipped with the following: Lightweight 17'' alloys, with Bridgeston Grid II sports tyres on the front of size: 235/40/ZR17 rear: 255/40/ZR17. Exhaust from the catalyst back - is of high quality stainless steel and produced by Mazdaspeed. Induction kit is standard as sipplied from the factory. The standard unit incorporates a cold air feed. There is also an earthing kit fitted to help improve spark plug performance. A Mazdaspeed oil cap has replaced the standard unit. Inside, there's a leather bound Ital Volanti Steering wheel, Razo carbon fibre and alloy gearknob, a neat Billion electronic fan controller to help keep the engine cool. This neat unit also shows water temp both in analogue display and digital, combined with a volt meter. The twin electric radiator fans are also able to be switched to come on at any desired temperature with this unit. The suspension on this example consists of fully adjustable TEIN units. Height can be adjusted and damping is tunable with an allen key in minutes. Currently it's set to a firm but comfortable street ride. There is also a Hornet 728 alarm fitted - this comes free of charge with the car. A GReddy boost gauge is sited to the right of the steering wheel in a neat pod. Especially desirable as it's no longer in production nowadays (We have one fitted to our own RX-7 too).
FD3S - 40XXXX models onwards models have a 16 bit ECU which reacts faster to provide better engine and turbo management and slightly more power (265 bhp as std. spec on R Bathurst models). Also there are uprated tail lenzes and rear spoiler in addition to some slight engine mods as std. This is a lightweight model built just before airbags were introduced as std. in Japan.
Original equipment includes: PAS, P/W, AC, ABS, Sports Cloth seats, fitted mats, front strut brace, original tool kit (No items are missing, optional tools are not fitted, however). R Bathurst models are also equipped as standard with 4 piston front brakes twin oil coolers. This example comes with optional stainless steel sill plates and alcantara suede front seats. Some bespoke sports fitted mats are included. A high quality Kenwood hifi of 200W with MD/CD/ Radio and combined digital equaliser is fitted complete with uprated speakers. These are supplied free of charge with the car.
Oil pressure is high, regularly serviced and well maintained, - this car runs very sweetly - just an an RX-7 is meant to. We first spent a good hour warning it up whilst we washed the bodywork to check carefully for any faults, then test drove this car and found it to be like new. Oil has recently been changed. With no squeaks or rattles at all when passing over bumps, an engine that pulls strongly all the way from idle, brakes that have virtually no wear and paintwork gleaming as if this were a brand new RX-7 - The last owner clearly cared to the point of obsession about his car. It's as tight as can be, smells much like new inside. With no stone chips and paint in as new condition throughout the car, it's evident this car was always garaged, cared for and never driven hard. Total cost of wheels,exhaust and other mild modifications are around £2,500 worth in Japan - Showing once again this is a well looked after cared for example.
Note that upgrade parts at discounted prices are available for this car through our parts department! We can supply unique items not usually available, such as 1999 look front indicators, Apexi Power FC ECU's at lower prices that available anywhere else, and much more! Check out for more info!
Note that this has been a non smoker's car since new. No ashtray is fitted. Instead there's a small cubby box complete with a soft elbow rest. Usually there is a small plastic cap to go where the cigar lighter would fit, but this is missing. Easily replaced.The car is of auction grade 4.5 (Auction sheet available). Condition is outstanding. There is a light pin dent on each front wing and another on each rear quarter. Also one tiny scratch dent on the rear o/s arch - around 1cm long. The front bumper has some minor paint cracks and also there's some minor stress fractures on the rear bumper also. Although only minor faults that could easily go un-noticed, these will be repaired to present this car in immaculate condition upon completion. Note that the jacking points are each slightly marked from when the car's been lifted before, but these are very minor and require no repair.
Including cost of minor paintwork, full UK conversions, de-restriction and recalibration of odometer to miles, SVA preparation test, road tax and new MOT, 12 month's comprehensive Motorcare warranty (Covers rotor tips and water seals for maximum peace of mind) this car is available for: £11,295 £1,000 secures this RX-7 for prompt shipment.
