[Car Porn] 450 hp rotary powered Mazda 3


The Mazda 3 is a fine car. But I have to admit that a rear-wheel drive Mazda3 has popped up on several of my day dreams. And apparently I wasn’t e only one. Some guy named Werner Van Herck of Belgium had the same idea, and hired the wizards at VA Motorsports (http://www.va-motorsport.com/) to build him a beast of a Mazda 3.

Starting off with a 2010 Mazda 3, it was stripped down & re-engineered with a 450 hp 3-rotor Mazda rotary engine mated to a sequential 6-speed transmission, which drive the rear wheels with a independent rear suspension set up.
