JGTC RX-7

NZ Performance Car - - Power Plant -

This RE Amemiya FD RX-7 GT300 com­peted in the 2000 sea­son of the JGTC — now re­ferred to as ‘Su­per GT’. Built by Maz­daspeed, in con­junc­tion with RE Amemiya, it at­tained var­i­ous podi­ums through­out the sea­son, claim­ing a win at the first fly-away event in Sepang. It uti­lizes a 20B pe­riph­eral-port (PP) triple-ro­tor built by Maz­daspeed, and even re­tains the orig­i­nal JGTC air re­stric­tor from its glory days. The Maz­daspeed chas­sis in­cludes a roll cage built by the spe­cial di­vi­sion, while the body pan­els — most of which are con­structed from car­bon fi­bre — are a mix of RE Amemiya and Bomex units. The car was found liv­ing out its days in Aus­tralia and has been brought here to run at var­i­ous events — just the way it should.
