SE­RIES 4/5 MAZDA RX-7

Unique Cars - - JAPANESE CLASSICS -

His­tor­i­cally, the Se­ries 4/5 FC RX7 has long been the mid­dle child of the lin­eage whereby most col­lec­tors would be drawn to the early Se­ries 1s, 2s or 3s or – at the other end of the spec­trum – the most mod­ern Se­ries 6, 7 or 8 FD RX7 (you can prob­a­bly thank a cer­tain Hol­ly­wood fran­chise for that).

In our eyes how­ever, the FC and its gor­geous 80s wedged charm are no less de­sir­able than its sib­lings. They were also a tech­no­log­i­cal leap from their pre­de­ces­sor and were able to hold their own against the pop­u­lar com­par­i­son of the time, the Porsche 944.

Me­chan­i­cal hor­ror sto­ries are plenty in re­gards to old ro­taries, much of which can be avoided with proper main­te­nance. Look for de­cent ser­vice records.
