I still love the rotary, but the V-8 swap is where my heart is at the moment.

Why You Chose This Platform After selling my R1 in 2005, I finally got back into a sports car, but this time decided to go with something a little more unique. I still love the rotary, but the V-8 swap is where my heart is at the moment. I still spend more time in the rotary communities because they’re my friends from the past 10 years, and if given the opportunity I would return to my roots in rotary. For now, the dark side is strong with me, and the power and reliability of the V-8 is undeniable!
Numbers 412 whp and 405 wtq.
Props/Thanks To my wife Gretchen, my son Aiden, all my friends and family; RX7Club.com, RotaryCarClub.com and NoRotors.com for all the support.

The G-Class has changed a lot since the 460-series debuted in 1979. Today, the G-wagon is now as much an S-Class as it is an off-roader

That's about what the Honda Civic Type R makes and nearly twice as much power as we got from the last Mini JCW GP back in 2012

Created exclusively for Japan, the model gets no powertrain upgrades but looks fantastic enough that we don’t really care.
