MAZDA RX8 FD

Having developed the original Mazda RX8 into a very successful endurance racing car, it became apparent that the standard Mazda RX8 chassis was capable of handling much high power levels. In order to fill the void in performance between the Taranis and the Mazda RX8, the Team built the Mazda RX87 FD. This drew upon the experience with the original RX8, allowing them to improve the development on the chassis further still, to which they added a Mazda 13B-REW single turbo engine which produces around 400bhp. Mated to a sequential transmission, the superb RX8 chassis finally had a powertrain to match. The RX87 FD is a full endurance specification racecar, suitable for Britcar or 750MC Club Enduro.
