Description

The Mazda Furai was a concept car manufactured by Mazda. The Furai, meaning "sound of the wind", was powered by a new generation 3-rotor Wankel engine that put out 450 brake horsepower (340 kW). The engine was developed and built by renowned rotary tuner Racing Beat, who also built the car's rotary-shaped muffler canister. Unlike many concept cars, the Furai was fully functional and was tested at various tracks. It has run at Laguna Seca and Buttonwillow.

On August 19, 2008, at Bentwaters Parks, the Mazda Furai caught on fire while driving on the track. Mazda kept this a secret for 7 years until they ultimately gave Charlie Turner from Top Gear Magazine permission to publish his first-hand account of the Mazda Furai catching fire and burning to a crisp.
