Produced between 1971-1978, the RX-3 was a powerful tiny coupe that went on to win the Japanese Grand Prix in 1972, the Bathurst 1000, and the American SCCA, among other respectable races. The DNA Garage Mazda RX-3 Race Car is an even more capable version.

Based on a 1974 model, the vehicle packs a triple-rotor semi-peripheral port 20B with intercooled turbos, cranking out 400 bhp. To keep the weight as light as possible, DNA Garage has stripped the interior of all carpets, sound deadening, dashboard, and rear seats, while a custom roll cage has been added for added safety.

Complete with a Racepak dash, wide fender flares, a fine rear wing, and a cool green and yellow paint scheme, this aggressive little guy is fully prepared to attack the race track.
