The Mazda RX-7 is a front/mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive, rotary engine-powered sports car that was manufactured and marketed by Mazda from 1978 to 2002 across three generations, all of which made use of a compact, lightweight Wankel rotary engine. It was succeeded by the RX-8.

Mazda RX-7 models are prominent in the Initial D series, the most iconic of which is the Yellow FD3S driven by Keisuke Takahashi.


The second generation of the RX-7 was known as the Mazda Savanna RX-7 in Japan like its predecessor, the SA22C. It was completely restyled to appeal more to the North American market, where the first generation had sold best. It was produced from 1985 to 1992.

Only one FC is featured in Initial D, the 1990 Crystal White Mazda SAVANNA RX-7 ∞ III driven by Ryosuke Takahashi. Ryosuke uses this car during his time as leader of the Akagi RedSuns, and later modifies it for a battle against Rin Hojo during Project D's Kanagawa Expedition.

The third generation RX-7, FD, featured an updated body design. The 13B-REW was the first-ever mass-produced sequential twin-turbocharger system to be exported from Japan. The FD was produced from 1992 to 2002.

Several FDs appear in the Initial D series, both of which being ɛ̃fini Type Rs. The Type RS and Spirit R Type A both appear in the Arcade Stage games.
