Many casual enthusiasts may think that the RX-7 was Mazda’s first sporty car, but little could be further from the truth. The Japanese brand had rotary powered sporty cars dating back to the early Sixties. The RX-3, known in Japan as the Savanna, was sold here from 1972 until ’78 and was powered by a 12A rotary. In motorsport, they were positioned successfully as a competitor to the Mighty Nissan Skyline.
Like most Japanese cars of the era, the RX-3 did not deal well with road salt, so there aren’t many left on this continent’s roads. This makes Savant Young’s super clean road-going version even cooler. This wee coupe is the bomb!
