Description:
1975 Mazda Roadpacer...

In an ill-planned attempt to compete with the Toyota Century and Nissan President, Mazda decided to take a Holden Kingswood and sell it in the Japanese market... but rather than give it a big V8 like its competition, they fitted it with a 1.3L rotary.

Possibly one of the most underpowered cars ever built.

Stats on this beast...

134hp, 137lb/ft, 3472lb... and it was only offered with a 3-speed automatic that was geared in a way that the engine was never really able to rev high enough to even PRODUCE those power figures.

What's even scarier... Mazda produced a 26-passenger bus powered by that same engine >_<

Ye gods....

So much for the "Japanese cars practicaly shit gold" argument that all the fanboys use, and no, that's not a cue for you grittboys to get up and say this PROVES they suck, so sit back down.

#12, Ahaha, this PROVES they.....

Oh, damn.

In all seriousness, I can't imagine 137 foot pounds of torque in a nearly 3500 lb. car with only a 3 speed transmission. Most stock 1930s vintage cars could probably run off and leave this thing.

The front end looks sorta like that of a 71/74 Impala.

#14, I've always thought the Holden its based on looks a little like a '70 Chevelle 4 door. I can see a lot '71 Impala in the front, though.

Not surprising that full-size Holdens and Chevys of relatively the same era share some similarities in styling...

Here's a walkaround and startup of a Mazda Roadpacer, complete with a shot of the engine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bRAKImeCTcs
