TCP Magic Mazda RX-7 SEMA 2016 Spotlight #TENSEMA16

The widebody 400hp Mazda you had to see

Nov 9, 2016

It's an exciting time to be in the tuner community. If there's anything we've learned from the 2016 SEMA Show, it's that not only are old-school cars growing in popularity, but JDM supercars are making a huge comeback. One of our all-time favorites from SEMA '16 was parked hard in the Toyo Tires Treadpass area. Jonny Grunwald is a good friend of Super Street's and has proven himself a capable builder. He's also somewhat of a JDM aficionado and is credited for helping Bulletproof Automotive build one of the craziest FR-S we've ever seen; the Concept One. This year, however, he worked on his own personal car and teamed up with Taisuke Kawato of TCP Magic Japan to make one wild Mazda RX-7.

Jonny admits that the engine bay is under construction, but we think a reliable 433whp rotary engine is still impressive. All eyes were on TCP Magic's aggressive G-Face widebody kit. It's the same body kit you'll find on Mad Mike Whiddett's four-rotor HUMBUL, but with brand new carbon fiber add-ons. We're not exactly sure how Jonny got a hold of the new TE37SL Black Edition II's, but he did. When we peeked inside the cabin, our eyes went straight to the gangster diamond stitched alcantara Recaro Profi SPG seats and the Top Secret x Personal steering wheel.

Jonny says, "It was an honor to collaborate with Kawato-san of TCP Magic on such a high profile build. A lot of careful planning as well as sleepless nights, but I'm proud to share my vision of such a historic platform."

It's clear that Jonny has impeccable taste. Anybody can simply buy JDM parts, but assembly and proper execution is something only people with a vision can do.
