Ride of the Week: ’93 Mazda RX-7 R1 [Video]

Sometimes, unicorns really do exist. Not only is Tim Eull’s R1-spec Competition Yellow Mica RX-7 one of only 350 sold in the U.S. in that trim, but it’s managed to stay widebody-free for all this time. That’s not to say it hasn’t received its fair share of mods, because this car has been upgraded in all the right ways.

Out back, the stock taillights have been replaced with a set of 1997 RX-7 JDM ones, the engine has been given a Blowzilla TD61 turbo and even the dashboard has been signed by RX-7 FD3S project manager Takaharu Kobayakawa. He also has switched out the wheels and tires to a set of Work Meister S3s and Nitto NT05s.
