arnell’s 1973 rx3 by seanklingelhoefer

This months issue of superstreet shows one of the best RX-3 there ever was.

The RX-3 was Mazda’s third try at building a rotary, and oh boy what a try! Love the looks of this SP. Yeah, it’s an RX-3 SP, the GTI, the type R, the Nür Edition of the RX-3.

It was an old racecar retrofitted to street use, 13B engine, T04 turbo,… ending up in putting 312hp @ the wheels !
