  8. Damn ... I love this car.

    One of the best bodywork designs i've seen in last years, love the aesthetic philosofy, 5 stars!

    Have to see it live.
     
  9. It revs to 15,000 RPM.
     
  10. Ford. So basically this car has no chance of ever being produced...
     
  11. It was about 1800 pounds when it ran as an ALMS LMP2 car. I'd expect it to have gained a few hundred pounds in the transformation to concept car though.
     
  12. +1 Mazda, what a car <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/grin.gif"></A>
     
  13. Such an amazing car.
     
  14. i would kill to see something like this in a road homoligation
     
  15. Thanks.
    I'm not a mechanic/engineer but isn't the rotary engine awesome for racing as :
    1. it's half the weight of equivalent stroke-piston engines ?
    2. much more economical ?
    3. more reliable as has much less working parts ?

    maybe i'll ask those guys in technical forum.
     
  16. They are generally better, but they are restricted heavily by every racing league.
     
  17. Why is this a concept again? The could sell these at 2 million dollars each and still sell out.
     
  18. why does it looks melting
     
  19. You're not the only one, that looks gorgeous
     
  20. Rotary engines typically are very reliable, but they are prone to overheating and generally get very poor gas mileage compared to piston engines. They're generally engines you have to drive the hell out of and keep it at the top of the revband to get any power from.

    It was deemed a rotary could not be made competitive in the ALMS, which is why they went back to piston power.
     
  21. Because they only have 1 chassis to make the car, and it's sitting underneath that bodywork right now.
     
  22. Because they only have 1 chassis to make the car, and it's sitting underneath that bodywork right now.
     
  23. because Mazda fanbois like melted stuff, so Mazda made a melting car for them. So they can *** to it.
     
  24. ***! ***! ***!
