FC RX-7 (with a Toyota twist)

One of the Mazda RX-7's defining characteristics is its Wankel rotary engine; ignore rumours of fragility, as long as it's well lubricated and you renew the rotor tips when you should, it's a strong little unit with plenty of scope for tuning.
...but there's no room for sentimentality here. This FC RX-7 has had its Wankel junked (fnar) and replaced with some rather fruity Toyota power of the more traditional four-stroke variety, with a brace of sizeable turbos for good measure.
And I don't know about you, but I don't think I've yet seen a better-suited set of wheels than this bolted to an FC.
This RX-7 is soon to be featured in S3 magazine - keep watching the skies, etc.
