NAME: 1996 ReAmemiya Autozam AZ-1 “Greddy 6”
Everyone who’s been into cars for a while will recognize the Autozam AZ-1, the gull-winged Mazda kei car that looks like a Japanese RS200. Despite being a pedestrian car, it got a higher “mazdaspeed” spec with a limited run, which improved the aerodynamics and its power output. But unlike most think, and unlike what was established in the forums until today, it was FAR from the AZ-1’s ultimate form.
For those who aren’t familiar with the name, ReAmemiya (or Re Super-G) is a Mazda tuner set in Japan that have been around for decades. They don’t only tune cars, however, but also make bodykits for Time attack, drifting, and a while back, GT racing.
This AZ-1 was a passion project that was never raced, despite being fully capable of it. Not a single part besides the main body frame belongs to an AZ-1 however, because everything down to the last touches of paint are custom-picked for performance. Oh, and did i mention it’s street legal?
