Mazda 787B, Mazda RX-792P, Mazda RX-7
The 787B and RX-792B both use the 4-rotor R26B an engine that is easily

2 of The Best Sounding Cars in the World!
(Turn your speakers up!) The Matra 670 with its screaming V12 and the Mazda
787B are, in my opinion, are two of the greastest sounding cars. Here they

Unfortunately the 787B wasnt going full whack though luckily the Matra was.
following Mazda 787B on my bicycle at 24h of Le Mans 2013 (idle + revving)
To mark the 90th anniversary of the 24h of Le Mans, 11 legendary winning
cars were chosen by the public and a jury.
They did 2 slow parade laps before the actual FIA WEC race would start.
One of these was this Mazda 787B. This is the actual winning car from the
1991 24 hours of Le Mans.
Driven to victory by Bertrand Gachot, Johnny Herbert and Volker Weidler.
