MAZDA FD3S RX7 ‘SPIRIT R’ TYPE A

Unique Cars - - AUCTION ACTION -

$73,000 SHAN­NONS, LOT 22

YOU WON’T see one of these of­ten. Only 1500 Spirit R’s were built as the RX7 swan­song and they’ve be­come hugely sought af­ter. The Type A fea­tured a five-speed man­ual trans­mis­sion and light­weight Re­caro seats, along with 276 horse­power from its ro­tary en­gine. This one, #561, ar­rived in Aus­tralia in 2006 and has trav­elled just 69,400 kms in to­tal. Given the astro­nom­i­cal prices that RX2/RX3’s are fetch­ing, it was no sur­prise bid­ding was fierce.
