2001 Mazda RX-7 Type RZ

Super rare, 2001 Mazda RX-7 RZ, one of only 175 built world-wide, now for sale at AMCS.

The very limited edition Type RZ version included all the features of the Type RS, but at a lighter weight of 1,270 kg. Power from the twin turbo 13B Rotary was increased with the addition of a less restrictive muffler and more efficient turbochargers which featured abrade-able compressor seals, producing 206 kW at 6500 rpm and 314 N/m of torque at 5000 rpm as per the maximum Japanese limit.

The car also featured a factory brake upgrade by increasing rotor diameter front and rear to 314 mm and front rotor thickness from 22 mm to 32 mm. The RZ version also sported a 4.30 final drive ratio, providing a significant reduction in its 0–100 km/h time. The gearbox was also modified, with the 5th gear made longer to reduce cruising rpm and improve fuel efficiency.

The RZ featured gun-metal coloured BBS wheels and a stunning racing themed red carbon Recaro interior. An improved ABS system worked by braking differently on each wheel, allowing the car better turning during braking. The effective result made for safer driving for the average buyer.

For sale is this stunning Pearl white RX-7 RZ. The car was imported to Australia and complied in 2010 and is showing 61,404 kilometres from new. Verification papers from Japan are included as are the Australian import papers. This is certainly a Japanese super car with amazing timeless styling, comfort and tons of power and handling abilities.
