Mazda may only be focusing on crossover SUVs these days, like the international CX-60 or the North American flagship CX-90, but some fans still only have eyes for the Japanese automaker's rotary sports car heroes.
The new CX-50 and CX-60, plus the upcoming CX-70 and CX-90 crossover SUVs, could be great for sale and will certainly ensure the company's ultimate survival.
But the heart's desire is usually not the practical pilot. At least not when Mazda sports cars are involved, especially of the rotary engine variety.
And, of course, the best example revolves around the massive cult following of the sports car, the RX-7.
The front engine RWD and rotary engine was produced in just three generations between 1978 and 2002 and all of them made clever use of the compact and lightweight Wankel style rotary mill.
Of course, as with anything around the world, people also had their favorite and without much thought, in this case it would be the final iteration of the FD3S.
Both in the real world and in the virtual world, as it turns out. And sometimes these two cool automotive universes intertwine.
The rendering of the Mazda RX-7
A good example would be the crazy widebody Mazda RX-7 FD3S with a modified Zonda V12 engine inside the engine compartment since there is no hood anymore, which is not just a figment of our imagination.
Although, it sports pixel master Khyzyl Saleem's widebody LTO kit which was initially designed as a digital study.
Now there's another new instance of a potential CGI-to-reality design building project.
Equally famous London, UK-based virtual artist Al Yasid, better known as al.yasid on social media, just shared some custom RX-7 work done a minute ago for a client.
Simply dubbed the “RX-Seven”, this crimson version of the FD3S is also completely beat and totally wide.
But it also comes with its own unique custom features, like the clear wheel covers over the bronze replacement front assembly that were allegedly “stolen” from a McLaren Speedtail.
Or the custom aerodynamic work, highlighted in gloss black, as well as the exposed rears, plus the redesigned bespoke LED lights.
