The first breed of sports vehicle was introduced on the late 1970's that shook the whole world because of its unique design and sporty look. The Mazda RX-7 is one of the Japan's first sports vehicles that are both powerful and lightweight because of the Wankel's rotary engine. The RX-7 provides the user with an outstanding driving experience that includes safety, comfort and good handling in one vehicle. Other enthusiasts find it too luxury to be used on daily basis, but others who can appreciate the beauty of this vehicle have seen the great performance that this vehicle can provide and made it as their buddies.
What made the Mazda RX-7 a sports vehicle is its rotary engine. The elimination of piston that causes strains and massive pressure on the engine block provide it to perform better. Since the rotor is directly connected to the output shaft, the connecting rods and other valve gear are also eliminated. The removal of these parts has made the rotary engine simpler while leading it to more superior power production for a given displacement. It also provides a smooth flow of power that the reciprocating engine cannot provide. Because a rotary engine is smaller and lighter than the reciprocating engine, the Mazda RX-7 was faster and can reach its top speed quicker.
Mazda RX-7 made the Mazda Corporation on of the most successful vehicle manufacturer in that time. The sales of the RX-7 were strong throughout the first generation of the vehicle. The RX-7 was been modified to fit to the second generation of vehicles that provides more sophistication, more powerful engine and it introduces the turbocharged engine and a convertible top vehicle. The aerodynamic design of the RX-7 was also been modified making it one of the fastest vehicle in the second generation. The RX-7 weight was reduced even further that could match with the world's best performance vehicles.
The Mazda RX-7 is powered by a turbocharged and intercooler 1.3 liter rotary engine that can produce a whooping 250 horsepower or more if modified to greatest performance. The turbocharged engine provides a boost on the primary gear and provides an additional power in the second gear. This power is applied on the rear wheel of the vehicle with a 5 speed manual transmission to make it faster and balance even on high speed.
By reducing the weight of the vehicle, it was made the fastest vehicle in its class. The Mazda RX-7 is equipped with only quality parts to be able to perform like this. But, quality parts are also subjected to wear and tear under normal driving condition. If some case you need replacement Mazda RX-7 parts, you can find it here at Parts Train.
