Evaluation: Showing 39,662 miles. Fitted with the R1 package, which added stiffer suspension, an additional oil cooler, a strut tower brace, spoilers, special upholstery and Z-rated tires. Has had some interior replaced and wears new tires. Recent mechanical attention included fuel tank flush, new oil pan, new spark plugs, and new turbos. There is little wear or age to speak of, and there are no visible mods. Lightly driven and mostly pampered since new, which is more than you can say about most RX-7s out there.
Bottom Line: These FD-generation RX-7s represent the end of an era for rotary performance and a golden age for Japanese sports cars, led in the collector car market by the much more expensive Toyota Supra Mk IV and Acura NSX. We think the Mazdas still have room to grow, and this sale is a good sign. While it isn’t the most expensive RX-7 we’ve ever seen, it’s close, and we’ve seen lower mile examples sell for less. It is also more than the car would have cost when it was new (almost $60,000, adjusted for inflation).
