RX-7 RZ Limited Edition

Mazda Motor Corporation announces the release of the RX-7 Type RZ, a performance-enhanced limited edition version of the RX-7, Mazda's rotary engine-powered sports car, as well as enhancements to the other models in the RX-7 lineup. The new RX-7 models, including the limited edition Type RZ, go on sale today at Mazda Anfini dealerships throughout Japan.

The limited edition RX-7 Type RZ is equipped with red custom full-bucket seats manufactured by Recaro, a custom suspension system manufactured by Bilstein, and custom aluminum wheels manufactured by BBS. These and other enhancements reduce the overall weight of the Type RZ by approximately 10kg, improving handling and performance. The Type RZ has a custom body color-snow white pearl mica. Only 175 units of this limited edition model will be sold.

The improvements to the new RX-7 lineup, in general, include modifications to the brake and suspension systems to enhance driving performance and handling stability. The interior features an instrument panel with white meters, metal plated frame rings, and red illumination for a more sporty look. The reinforced side impact bars and ABS equipped with an EBD (electrically-controlled braking distribution) system for all four wheels enhance safety.

The new RX-7 expresses Mazda's stylish, insightful and spirited brand personality. Its distinctiveness is the result of a design process emphasizing three key ideas: distinctive design, exceptional functionality, and responsive handling and performance. By exploiting the strengths of the lightweight, compact, and high-output rotary engine, RX-7 achieves an exceptional level of "responsive handling and performance." The RX-7 is the sports car that best symbolizes Mazda.

The monthly sales target is 300 units.
