They say, "a picture is worth a thousand words" and this photo set of a 1997 Mazda RX-7 certainly lives up to the 'ol adage and more. Alex Stroker, better known as @strokerphoto on Instagram, is one of the best up-and-coming photographers from Europe that I've met in the last couple of years and he's certainly a certifiable magician when it comes to retouching images. I mean, just take a long look at these gorgeous captures which take place in a rather boring industrial/business parking lot; however, Alex has brought them to life using his uncanny talents behind the camera and computer.
As for the FD3S, well, it's an ex-time attack car from Top Fuel Racing Japan that's found a new home in Madrid, Spain. The new owner goes by "Panda" and he's kept the car true to its roots by retaining the 500hp street-ported and turbocharged 13B-REW two rotor built by Top Fuel. It also has a high-quality laundry list of parts that still make it a beast at any proper road course, for example, the race-spec Aragosta coilovers, SARD sway bars, Brembo brakes and functional carbon aero.
Top Fuel Racing retired this RX-7 several years ago and they can be rest assured that it's in good hands with all its original ingredients intact and the rotary well-maintained. Perhaps they didn't figure it would receive so much attention on social media and become a bona fide JDM posterchild. For that, they have Alex Stroker to thank.
