Near a decade ago, a movie about illegal street racing in Los Angeles was released in the big screen. That movie, The Fast & The Furious, spawned three other sequels and pushed import street racing into the forefront of pop culture. A genre of youngsters grew up worshipping Japanese sports car in the way many boomers of the 1960s and 70s were worshipping Mustangs, Corvettes, and Camaros.
Mazda RX-7: Four-wheeled Star
Among the favorites from the movie was the 1993 Mazda RX-7 that Dominic Toretto drove in the street racing scene. Turbo-charged and nitrous-boosted, the fire engine red RX-7 kept Dominic as king of the streets. Just like any royalty, the Mazda RX-7 was regally attired. It had a Veilside body kit and custom headlights to make it stand out. The dagger-spoke wheels, also from Veilside, added to the sleek finish. Toyo 18-inch tires were installed for the best street handling.
One very unforgettable scene was when the racers were priming up and Toretto lifted the passenger seat to ‘arm’ the four-tank NOS (nitrous oxide system). Using NOS was key to Toretto’s victory. More specifically, it was the timing of its use. During the race, O’Conner, one of the competing drivers and co-lead character, also used NOS to get ahead. But he used it too early and Toretto was able to overtake him for the victory.
Throughout the entire race, the red RX-7 that Toretto drove was prominently featured. The car was built for speed. Powered by the legendary twin-turbo rotary stock engine, Dominic Toretto’s Mazda RX-7 produced 255 horsepower. Fans and owners also often point to the unique engine sound as what made the car great.
The Mazda RX-7 began selling in 1979 until 2002 to be replaced by the RX-8. The 1993 model was a third, and last, generation. Car owners who bought the RX-7 cited the zippy performance of the car as its main selling point. The low weight and powerful engine gave the car an impecably precise handling that made it fun to drive. These were the things we saw Dominic Toretto do with the Mazda RX-7 in The Fast & The Furious.
