Many hours and dollars have gone into bringing this RX7 Sports Sedan back to track spec after sitting dormant since 2004.

See start-up video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPjiyKQ-SUY

I purchased this car a couple of years ago and it went straight to the original engine builder John Perkins (VIC) who went through the mechanicals, freshened the engine and updated the MOTEC to an M1 package with new motorsport sensors through out. It has done dyno runs only since.

It runs an early Racing Beat style 13B PP with injection and dry sump set-up. The gearbox is a PPG gearset in a Mazda RX7 case. It runs a spooled Mazda diff with Harrop floating hubs. Three diff gear sets come with the car.

Brakes are Wilwood fronts with Mazda RX7 (FD) rears.

The chassis is largely un-touched so could (with some work) be returned to an IP car or would make a great base for a period style Group C replica. Chassis mods are limited to the drivers floor (easily fit 6'2" driver) and radiator support panel.

Comes with moulds for the front nose cone, front guards and rear flares.

The car was originally piloted by Andrew Brown as an IP car and won the Australian Title in 1999. It was then later developed by Graeme Gilliand into the configuration it now sits. The floorpan (except drivers seat area) and firewall are unmodified so could be returned to a different spec if desired. Lots of engineering have gone into this car and is only being listed at a fraction of the cost to build new.

Requires new tyres to race. CAMS Log Book included.
