Getting a restomod project right is a hard thing to do, probably harder than restoring a car to its former glory.
Every now and then Jay Leno introduces us to beautiful restomod projects and this 1973 Mazda RX3 is one of the best we’ve seen so far. Sold as the Mazda Savanna in Japan and as the RX3 in export markets, it came from the factory with a 105hp rotary engine.
However, the owner of this particular car swapped the original engine for a more powerful Wankel unit from the second-generation Mazda RX-7. After extensive modifications, the engine delivers about 400hp, so this is no car to mess with at the stop lights. Not to mention that the sound it makes is just unreal.
Obviously, the car features more modifications than the souped-up engine, so check out the video posted below for details.
