Four-Rotor AWD Mazda RX-7 Gives Street-Legal 787B Vibes

Video / 3 Comments

This all-wheel-drive custom build took six years to complete.

The Mazda RX-7 (FD) remains one of the most iconic and sought-after Japanese sports cars money can buy. Aside from the gorgeous bodywork, the MX-5 Miata's bigger brother is most famous for its rotary powertrain. Rob Dahm is a great admirer of the unique engine, and the YouTuber even owns a three-rotor RX-7 that can give Ferraris a run for their money.

However, it's the four-rotor RX-7 that is his biggest source of pride, and, after years of toiling away, the final project is finally complete. On display at SEMA 2022, "Ahura" is the result of six years' worth of hard work and a long process, documented on Dahm's YouTube channel.

It's certainly an impressive-looking machine. The all-wheel-drive RX-7 looks resplendent in the metallic blue paintwork, which has been paired with five-spoke gold wheels. That widebody kit provides all the menace anyone would ever need and, aside from the carbon fiber hood, the four-rotor Mazda is fuss-free. It's a neat and somewhat elegant custom creation.

In his latest video, Dahm explains what it's like to see his completed dream car. "This is an amazing milestone that I'm going to look back on in the future."

Over the years, Dahm and his dream RX-7 have amassed a huge fanbase. This is clear to see from the moment they arrive at SEMA, with people bombarding the team for a closer look at photo opportunities.

Dahm can't pass up the opportunity to drive the RX-7 through the display hall and fires up the insanely loud motor. "We made it in, [and caused] a little bit of a scene ... I'm so excited for the world to see it." On the eve of SEMA 2022's opening, the RX-7 was covered in a sheet. The following morning, a crowd of eager fans had gathered around the RX-7 for the unveiling.

People flock towards the Mazda, phones in hand, to get a closer look at this one-of-a-kind creation.

On his Instagram page, Dahm expressed gratitude to all his fans. "[It's] hard to believe this beautiful car is the same 1300-horsepower, AWD monster. Genuinely love how the 4 Rotor turned out. It's 95% of what I absolutely dreamed of. No compromising, just following what felt right. I'm blown away [by] the response."
