This year’s Tokyo Motor Show has already produced plenty of wild concept cars, but when the dust settles there’s little doubt that we’ll remember Mazda’s RX-Vision Concept as one of the most special.
In part that’s because it’s heart-breakingly beautiful, with the kind of curves more typically found on luxury British roadsters. Add in rear-wheel drive and you have enough ingredients to put a smile on most people’s faces.
No ad to show here.
But the thing about the RX-Vision that’s really setting car nerds’ hearts aflutter is the fact that it’s powered by a rotary engine.
Before you get too excited though, you should know that Mazda has no plans to rush the RX-Vision’s SKYACTIV-R rotary engine into production. That probably means it hasn’t quite figured out how to build a rotary engine that fits within contemporary emissions and fuel consumption standards.
Still, there’ll be more than a few people out there hoping that the Japanese car maker figures it out and figures it out fast.
