HJA is absolutely thrilled to present to you this magnificent Mazda RX-7 Type RS, a single-owner vehicle boasting a complete and comprehensive service history, exclusively maintained by authorized dealerships since its manufacture.


What makes the RS so special?

 

The high-end "Type RS" comes equipped with Bilstein suspension and 17-inch wheels as standard equipment, and a reduced weight of 1,280 kg (2,822 lb). Power is increased with the addition of a less restrictive muffler and more efficient turbochargers, featuring abradable compressor seals, 280 PS (206 kW; 276 hp) at 6,500 rpm and 314 N⋅m (232 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5000 rpm, as per the maximum Japanese limit.

 

The Type RS features a brake upgrade by increasing rotor diameters front and rear to 314 mm (12.4 in) and front rotor thickness from 22 mm (0.9 in) to 32 mm (1.3 in). The Type RS version also sports a 4.30 final drive ratio, significantly reducing its 0–100 km/h (62 mph) time. The gearbox was also modified; 5th gear was made longer to reduce cruising rpm and improve fuel efficiency.




The car is in stunning condition throughout, and the chassis remains in an incredible, rust-free state. The engine starts and runs smoothly, at the turn of the key, whether hot or cold. A recent compression test indicates that the engine is in good health.



Many expensive parts have been installed, such as the BBS alloy wheels found on the RX-7 Type RZ; these are retailing for over £5,000 online. The car also boasts other rare additions like the Mazdaspeed intercooler and an AutoExe carbon air filter box and exhaust, not to mention the array of Mazdaspeed/Bathurst R interior components.

 

The later-model Mazda RX-7 has become a coveted gem in the classic and performance car market, attracting enthusiasts and investors alike due to its unique rotary engine, iconic design, and increasing rarity.

 

As prices climb, especially in Japan, sourcing a well-maintained RX-7 is becoming increasingly challenging, making it a prized acquisition for collectors or those seeking a thrilling driving experience and a smart investment prospect.
