Maxxin’ Mazda

Lego Mazda RX7

Mazda’s RX-8 is now a seriously cheap car. Problems with oil consumption, rotor tip wear and then, ultimately, engine death means that early examples are now worth about as much an average-size telly. It’s almost worth buying one and running it ’til it blows, then weighing it in for scrap and buying another. Although you’d have to make sure you had very good breakdown cover…

Oddly, Mazda’s predecessor to the RX-8 hasn’t seemed to suffer from the same valuation free-fall as its descendant. RX-7’s, buoyed by the modification scene, are still desirable cars, and probably even more so if they’re yellow. At least in the eyes of our Elves anyway.

This one is the work of previous Featured TFOL Alexander Paschoaletto, and he’s done a thoroughly brilliant job of recreating the Japanese icon from Danish plastic. There’s an extensive gallery of images available on MOCpages – click this link to make the jump.
