MAZDA RX3

Bodies as 818.

Quite simply, the 818 with developed R100 type twin-rotor Wankel engine. Same styling, same body choice and same basic structure and equipment. 100bhp or 120bhp (from larger engine) gave up to 110mph top speeds. Some racing successes in Europe, yet not a charismatic car. Not sold here after 1975, and only available here with smaller rotary.
