MAZDA RX2

2-door/4-door 4-seater saloon/coupé.

Mazda's second generation Wanekl-engined touring car, effectively easing out the R100. Enlarged, 2.3-litre/130bhp twin-rotor engine in 616's structure, and same choice of bodies. In other words, 'grey porridge with performance', for 115mph was reportedly possible. No UK imports after 1973, which indicates poor sales. Do any survive here?
