Seller Submission: 1987 Mazda RX-7 LT1 V8

(Update 5/30/2018, the beast is still for sale with new lower price of $5900). The second (technically third) generation (FC) Mazda
RX-7 debuted in 1986 with new streamlined
styling and more power from the available Wankel rotary engines.  For
the first time in the US market, a turbocharged version was available,
but the chassis featured the same fantastic reflexes and sporty seating….but power/torque from the Wankel isn’t going to excite anyone in the 21st century…but a turbocharged V8 version with 500 whp might make an impression.  Find this 1987 Mazda RX-7 LT1 V8 offered for $8,000 here on DailyTurismo from seller Ahmad (see final paragraph of listing for seller contact info).
