Real life Mazda Furai
The elixir of life of the Mazda Furai is – alcohol. More precisely: a regenerative cellulose-ethanol fuel developed in collaboration with BP, which helps the Furai, powered by a three-rotor Wankel engine with a combustion chamber of just under two liters, to produce a whopping 450 hp. Visually, too, the Furai (Japanese for “sound of the wind”) is a stranger to cheeky tones. The distinctive, nature-inspired playfulness of the air deflection elements at the front, rear and sides has two effects. On the one hand, it loosens up the technically rugged basic rhetoric of a racing car prototype. On the other Hand it makes the Furai seem airier, lighter. Secondly, the curved carbon also serves its aerodynamic purpose.
Design elements and findings from Furai’s mobile aerodynamics laboratory are soon to be incorporated into large-scale production. As the provisional end point of the Nagara design line, which experiments with elements of nature, the birth of the Furai also coincided exactly with the fortieth birthday of the Wankel engine, which Mazda is still the only manufacturer to breathe new vitality into. So it made sense to get down to business and develop the beautiful one-off into a driving prototype. Without further ado, they took the carbon fiber chassis of the Courage race car from the American Le Mans series, planted said alki with three rotors of 654 cc each, and created a flounder costing around $2 million for occasional use.
