1970 Mazda Cosmo Sport

The Mazda Cosmo is a sports car that was produced by Mazda from 1967 to 1996. It was the first car to be powered by a rotary engine and was the flagship model of Mazda’s lineup. The first generation of the Cosmo was introduced in 1967 as a limited production sports car. It was offered with a 982 cc twin-rotor engine that produced 110 horsepower.

The second generation of the Cosmo, which was introduced in 1975, was offered with a larger 1.3-liter engine that produced up to 135 horsepower. It was also offered with a variety of luxury features, including air conditioning, power windows and mirrors, and a stereo sound system.

The third generation of the Cosmo, which was introduced in 1990, was the first car to be offered with Mazda’s new twin-turbocharged 13B-REW engine. This engine produced up to 276 horsepower and was paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.

Throughout its production, the Mazda Cosmo was known for its advanced technology and sleek design. It was also a popular choice among racing enthusiasts, with many examples being used in motorsports events around the world. Despite its success, production of the Cosmo was eventually discontinued in 1996 due to declining sales and changing market conditions.
