How Many Genuine UK FD RX7's Left?
« on: January 08, 2012, 10:06:38 PM »
Out of the 124 genuine UK Spec RX7\'s how many are left?
I thought I would ask the question as the FD was first seen on the UK Roads 20 years ago (May 1992)


Here is mine

Please post your details, list owner, year, colour, location and Dealership sold from (if know)

1.Philip, May 1992, Red, S.E London, Tunbridge Wells Mazda

Does anyone own a 1996 UK spec registration N307 VPE? Montego Blue... If so, I would love to see some photos as its my dads old car. Bought it 1998 and had it for 2 years. It was a beautifully and meticulously maintained car.

Mine, and a few others i know of, are genuine 1999 Mazda UK dealership cars, Never driven or registered in Japan
The story i heard was that a dealership bought a boat load in from Japan brand new in 1999 but some got lost or damaged on the journey over and so only a handful (5-6...ish) actually made it. I can think of 3 right now i know of.
So the 124 \'early\' uk cars maybe rare but the uk \'99\' ones are almost like hens teeth ;)
Good to see that so far about 10% of them are still around. I wonder how many other sports cars of this age and rarity are still about

Does your car have a uk chassis number though? As the uk on is different from cars meant for Japan.

No i dont think so. Didn\'t have UK specs or rear bumpers either so yes they were supposed to be destined for Japans roads... just never got on them :D
