Mazda RX-7 FD

The RX-7 FD is one of my favorite cars due to not only its speed and style, but its affordability. It's probably one of the few cars you'll see on here that I will very likely be able to afford in the near future. Needless to say, I really want one.

The FD was produced from 1992 to 2002 in 3 different series and features the famous 13B-REW engine, which was designed to, simply put, make a light car go really fast. It uses twin Hitachi HT-12 turbos, one of which boosted until 4500 RPMs, at which point the other takes over. The original FD had 255 hp and the final series peaked at 280 hp. It weighed only 1280 kg.
