Even though every second of this commercial screams early 80s forward thinking it still didn’t convince enough people that the rotary engine would be the solution to every problem. The new Luce was a big luxurious Japanese battleship and weighted 1450 kilograms. Not exactly movable by its 1.3 liter 13B rotary engine.

On the other hand it hits the bullseye: luxurious sedans need a silent less vibrating engine like the 13B. Unfortunately the rotary engine lacks the torque. Nevertheless I would still like to own such a thing any day!

I love the lotaly turbo chime at the end.
