Mazda 787B - back to La Sarthe



Mazda's iconic 787B, the only Japanese car and the only rotary-engined car ever to win the Le Mans 24hr, will be celebrating the twentieth anniversary of its victory at this year's event. It's being prepared at Mazdaspeed by current employees who took part in the team's effort back in 1991, and a couple of decades on, the sound of 700bhp at a crackling 9500rpm will still be more than enough to thrill the crowds at La Sarthe. See the video below for evidence of the aural onslaught...

i still miss the over-run sound and feel of endless power of a built rotary, but its a single mans game.
the wallet dictates that i drive something a lot more frugal and a factor of 10 more reliable. the d15b powered civic.
