Notes: Requires Jalopnik car pack
This next review is all about the stunning , jaw dropping , rotary engined Mazda Furai which despite the lack of upgrades for it in R2, this car is quite a force on the short tracks.
You dont even have to look at its PI to tell that this is a quick car for the track with its huge rear wing and menacing appearance you can tell this is one insane set of wheels.
On the track the Furai handles extremely smoothly and brakes faster than the blink of an eye thanks to its massive rear wing and because of this the mazda furai will hold its on on tracks such as Fujimi Kaido and Rally di Positano even against cars like the Mosler. Unlike most R2 cars which require TCS to even keep the car in a straight line , the mazda furai is drivable even without TCS though TCS is recommended to get the most out of it. The Furai’s Rotary engine produces 466 hp and it will go from 0-60 mph in 2.8 seconds and 0-100 in 5.5 seconds with a top speed of 172 mph.
list of some laptimes:
Fujimi Kaido Full: #157: 07:07.719
Fujimi kaido Old Down Hill: #44: 03:07.521
Fujmi Kaido New Down Hil: #49: 03:57.371l
Iberian Mini Circuit: #178: 00:26.898
Ladera Full: #306: 00:42.936
Rally di positano full: #135: 05:23.567
Rally di positano Full R: #89 : 05:23.885
The only downs sides is its lack of top speeds which limits this car to short tracks for it to be competitive. Its also expensive like many R2 cars but since its about the same price as a mosler and so many ppl have them its shouldn’t be to hard to save up for one.
Overall I think the Mazda Furai tune is a brilliant R2 car and the Furai is worth if for the looks alone
