Mazda Familia Rotary, 1968-1973

1968-1973 Mazda Familia Rotary (a.k.a. Mazda R100)

When the evolutionary version of the Cosmo Sport was launched, another sensational vehicle was also introduced to the market in July 1968. Mazda developed a brand-new Familia Rotary Coupe based on the design study model, the Mazda RX-85, which was first unveiled in front of the public during the Tokyo Motor Show the previous year. The Familia Rotary Coupe featured an identical rotary unit to that powering the Cosmo and, at the same time, offered cabin comfort comparable to a family vehicle. The company also took this high-performance touring car to the racetrack. In the Grand Prix of Singapore, the Familia Rotary Sedan clinched first place, proving that its superior performance potential was true.
Within the same year that the Coupe made its debut, the four-door sedan version followed in response to customer demand calling for a more versatile body design. With the introduction of the Familia Rotary SS, Mazda had three body styles; a sleek and futuristic sport car, a sporty yet easy-to-use coupe and a pragmatic sedan.

It is not often I have to pass, but here, yes, i have absolutely nothing. Would be hard to find these in the wild now and you have to look twice to recognise it for what it really is. Thanks for the contribution anyway
