Combine a sleek, aerodynamic shape and a modest curb weight with a potent, modern engine and you have yourself quite a ride! This 1994 Mazda RX7 LS1 is an outstanding performer and is propelled by a professionally installed high performance powerplant anchoring a drivetrain that's in top form. This sharp sports car is looking great both inside and out and comes with a clean AutoCheck report to confirm that it hasn't run afoul of any immovable objects during its years of service.
As a '94, this Mazda debuted as a member of the model's third generation and was equipped with a form that differed markedly from its predecessors - most notable is its broad track, which pairs with a low, road hugging stance to provide an advantageous center of gravity, actually forcing the car to be reclassified in its native Japan. It's wearing an outstanding coat of NU Vintage Red paint, with a strong clearcoat over the top to produce a radiant shine. With no flaws of note anywhere in sight and clear lighting at both ends, the overall presentation of the car doesn't stray from what it already featured upon first leaving the factory, so onlookers will have no clue as to the substantial power it's wielding.
You'll find a well-appointed interior waiting inside. The black high-backed bucket seats, with their integrated head rests, are nicely bolstered to provide support for more spirited driving and straddle a center console that's in fine shape. Up front in the dash area, gauges in the instrument cluster remain easily readable, while just to their right, the controls positioned at the center of the dash are in good order and sit next to an aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo that provides a strong audio experience. A flick of a switch inside the cockpit opens the sunroof to yield an open-air driving experience, and it too is in great condition, sealing tightly when closed to keep the elements out. Open the hatch in back and you'll be surprised at how much space sits before you - plenty of room for luggage for two to be stowed comfortably and lined with an expanse of stain-free black carpet.
The fuel injected 5.7 liter engine that now propels this Mazda received some attention to its heads and had a mild performance cam installed before being put in place - nothing drastic, just enough to enhance its already considerable muscle without compromising driving experience. As a result, the powerplant is now good for around 380 horses and, when you consider that this car weighed in at substantially less than 3,000 lbs in factory trim when it debuted, you can imagine its abilities. The swap was done seamlessly, so everything inside the compartment is as tidy as can be, and the accompanying 6 speed manual transmission shifts smoothly and is geared to take full advantage of the engine's output. A full front subframe was installed at the same time the swap was being undertaken, and the MacPherson strut suspension that came with it pairs with an independent rear suspension, so this Mazda is a nimble corner carver. The power steering is nice and smooth but precise and power disc brakes in both front and back provide all the stopping ability you could want. This skillfully enhanced performer cruises the asphalt on a set of very clean 16” factory wheels wrapped with Yokohama tires.
Carrying the outstanding power to weight ratio so coveted by performance enthusiasts and in fine form both inside and out, this 1994 Mazda RX7 LS1 is an absolute blast to drive and a joy to look at. Call today!
