Mazda will reportedly reveal a rotary-powered concept vehicle during the Tokyo Motor Show later this month.
According to a new report, the study, tentatively named RX-9, will feature a twin 800cc rotor motor with a two-stage electric turbocharger, mated to a hybrid system. The total output will likely be around 450 PS (331 kW) and the e-turbo will be driven by a capacitor that stores power and discharges it on demand.
The Japanese company already released the first teaser image of the study that revealed it will come with a round design, featuring a long hood, a rakish windscreen and a sporty roof. Motoring has two renderings of the car, which it claims are the real deal and are completely matching the teaser image, but this is still unconfirmed.
