FEEDING THE FIRE
18 With a quad-rotor motor and FEED wide arches this is one mental Mazda RX-7
FIVE YEARS IN THE MAKING, ROBERT GREEN’S CONTROVERSIAL QUAD-ROTOR FEED-KITTED FD RX-7 IS FINALLY READY TO ENTER THE SPOTLIGHT… AND IT’S BRINGING THE HEAT!
The modified car scene is driven by those not afraid to push the boundaries. By thosewho are willing to stand out from thecrowd and make a statement with their car. They are not the ones desperate for your approval. In fact, most of them thrive on the negativity of those that don’t share their vision. The very fact that they are causing controversy means they must be doing something right, and this in-turn only feeds the fire to continue the build to evergreater levels of contentiousness. After all, aside from the rush of enhanced performance that the veritable catalogue’s-worth of tuning parts has endowed your ride with, the wholepoint of modifying your car is to gain attention. And Las Vegas-based Mazda-fan Robert Green has got both of those boxes ticked…and then some!
‘THEFD RX-7 is such a beautiful car straight out of the factory,’ explains real estate investor, Robert, ‘The sweeping lines and long-nosed proportions makeit a truly timeless design that many people believe should not be messed with. However, I’m not oneof them!’ helaughs. And looking at his jaw-dropping Ferrari Rosso red RX-7 splashed across these pages, you can see that for yourself!
So if keeping it OEM was off thetable from thestart, what inspired this truly radical look?
‘I knew I wanted to build something unique. Something that would make people stop and stare,’ says Robert. ‘And with so many RE Amemiya conversions, TCP Magic kits and Rocket Bunny widebodies cropping up on FD RX-7S all over the show circuit and the internet, it was getting increasingly difficult to do something truly different.
But then I came across FEED.’
