The Mazda RX-7 LM Race Car is a Race car produced by Mazda. It first appeared in Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec. This car is the successor of the Mazda RX-7 LM Edition, a race car that appeared in the first two games of the Gran Turismo series.

In-game descriptionEdit

"This Gran Turismo original was created for fans of rotary-engine race cars."



The RX-7 is the definitive symbol of Mazda sportscars, and though production has ended on the sorely-missed FD3S model, there are many who eagerly await its return. Its level of performance as a sports car is top-level even today.

The body of the RX-7 is stretched wide as if to hug the ground. In order to accommodate its wide wheeltrack and wide tires. Despite this, its weight is only around 1.1 tons, due to significant efforts to reduce weight, making the hood, suspension and even the spare wheel, jack, and other components out of aluminium. In design, it has been given an unique organic form, giving it a feel that is offered by no other.

This LM Edition is a racing car based on the FD series RX-7, appearing in Gran Turismo. A heavily modified 3-rotor 20B turbo from the Eunos Cosmo replaces the familiar two-rotor 13B turbo engine. Though its displacement is only around 2L with three rotors of 654cc per rotor, it produces 493 BHP at 7000 rpm. Furthermore, drivability and usable power has been improved via the use of sequential twin-turbos.

The fenders of the car has been made wider to fit racing tires, and is given a front bumper spoiler with built in foglights, non-retractable headlights, side canard fins, a ventilated hood, rear wing and roll cage. Even with all this, the car barely exceeds 1 ton, demonstrating the dramatic level of weight reduction.

This 3-rotor racing version of the FD series RX-7, is a rotary enthusiast's dream come true.
