Historic Gr: 2 FB

Post by re japi » Fri Apr 01, 2016 5:24 am

Hi

Here in Finland, a beautifull FB rallycar has been onsale, for a long time actually. Yesterday I heard that it has been sold to UK, few months ago...

Also I heard that car raced already in some historic car event, just a few weeks ago. Car looks abit like works car, with similar colors but no bodykit. Also, it still is left hand drive...

Does anyone know about this car and its new owner?

Cheers

Yes Apexheid, that car excatly. :)

But its streetport engine, not BP. Car is simply stunning. I have seen it few times. And yes, its sounds awesome :)

Really pisses me of that car leaved Finland. We are stupid, and no one here really appreciates a beatifull car like that. Every one is willing to pay massive amounts from some stupid Escort, but not for Mazda... :(

Anyhoo, if you hear something about that car, please tell me :)

Yeah, I know and UK's the same.
Nobody like Rx7 cos it's too nosier, grass mower, Too slow. never win anything and no go!.... very true.. :lol: but love it more than crappie fords that fordies never understood.

I'm surprised to heard it was a street port, the exhaust system must be good design. long duel system?

Actually I dont know what exhaust system it has. I´m quessing Racing Beat headers and "straight pipes", that usual setup...
Car sounds awesome! :)

I dont know what porting plates engine builder used, but engine is/was very reliable and gives good power. 220horses and 200nm...
