Mazda RX-7 Sets Speed Record

Thereís a lot of records out there, all made to be broken. A Mazda RX-7 has broken the half-mile speed record for rotary engines.

Thatís a highly specific category, of course, as most rotary engines that are still on the road were made by Mazda for its RX-7 and RX-8 sports cars.

Mazda Miata's Record Run

The owner of one late-run RX-7 has built an 835-horsepower, turbocharged three-rotary engine. The owner, Rob Dahm, took the car to a half-mile-long dragstrip (most dragstrips are a quarter-mile long, in case you have forgotten or didnít know) and achieved 177 mph from a standing start Ė three mph quicker than the previous record.
