Mazda RX-7 Group B

Cars

We stumbled across this rare and rather killer footage of the fleeting moments of Mazda’s RX7 Group B career on the highly entertaining Japanese Nostalgic Car blog.

Listen to the sound of the RX7’s high-revving rotary engine, and enjoy the balletic beauty of the driver’s style.

I personally had no idea that Mazda ever entered Group B. But according to the experts, the rear wheel drive RX7 scored a rare distinction of a podium finish at the Acropolis Rally in 1985. When up against the hyper-powered AWD beasts like Walter Rohl’s Quattro etc.

Seeing these Group B monsters on tarmac is a rare treat.
