The FD Mazda RX-7 is a legend in its own right. But, owners either swear by the iconic rotary engine, or banish it. Either way, it’s an incredible vehicle. But, something about LS swapping an FD RX-7 just sounds nice. So does adding two turbochargers.
Great news, because this man did both of those things, and didn’t swear by the rotary (though there is nothing wrong with swearing by the rotary to keep this unbiased.)
The guy didn’t just swap a twin-turbo LS V8 in, though. He decided to benchmark it against the king of hyper cars these days: a Bugatti Veyron.
So, in one corner, a German owned, French super car with an 8.0-liter W16 quad-turbocharged engine, cranking out somewhere near 1,000 hp. In the other, an LS twin-turbocharged Mazda RX-7. And the Mazda absolutely walks the $2.25 million super car. Ouch.
The LS-swapped Mazda is the underdog here, and who doesn’t love a good underdog? Especially when they end up triumphant. Check it out for yourself right down below.
