Review: Mazda RX7 (1992 – 2002)


Blistering performance from the refined rotary engine and stunning styling.

Heavy on fuel and needs specialist maintenance, so running costs are high. Minimalist rear seats. Short runs will damage the rotor seals.

Buying a £15k sports car for track days and daily driving

I have a stock Toyota MR2 roadster that is excellent for track days. I have £15k to spend on something in the same vein that I can use in the UK and Europe for up to 10 trackdays a year. I want to have a lot of fun, but it will need to be passable as a daily drive. Should I get a Mazda RX7 or Lotus Elise?
Why not a Fiesta ST, maybe with Mountune mods. Not as pure a drive as an Elise, but huge fun and also practical as a daily driver.
