Tokyo : Mazda unveil the RX-Vision Concept
Mazda Motor Corporation have unveiled the Mazda RX-VISION in Tokyo, a sports car concept powered by a next-generation SKYACTIV-R rotary engine. Representing a vision of the future with it’s exquisitely proportioned front-engine, this rear-wheel drive model is one many fans hope will turn into reality.
Mazda’s love affair with rotary engines began with the Mazda Cosmo Sport 110S in 1967 and continued to develop with a particular highlight becoming the the Mazda RX-7, the most-sold rotary car ever with more than 800,000 produced between 1978 and 2002 and winning the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1991 with the Mazda 787B, the only company to win with a rotary-powered race car.
Despite not mass-producing any rotary models, Mazda have chosen the SKYACTIV-R label as it’s next-generation rotary engine to demonstrate it’s commitment to delivering their customers convention-defying technology and an uncompromising SKYACTIV experience behind the wheel.
Further updates are set to follow from Mazda at Tokyo Motor Show with the show open to the public from October 30th to 8th November.
