Reading about Mazda’s announcement no longer produce rotary cars made me realize we’ll never see these awesome cars anymore. Even the hydrogen RX-8 could not save Mazda’s rotary project…

Mazda RX-500 concept car in the woods

January 8, 2011 in rotary by banpei

In 1970 Mazda showed on the 17th Tokyo Motor Show one of the most extraordinary concept cars for its time: the RX-500. After 40 years this car is still as amazing as it was in 1970,

The only thing that bugs me is: what is it doing in the middle of a forest and why do the boy and girl in the background embrace each other? Are they afraid of the whole car? Is ti threatening them? What mastermind thought of such a bad publicity photo? ??(?????)??
