Mazda Furai

The Mazda Furai was an exotic looking vehicle, and essentially a Le Mans race car under a funky shell. In fact, while most concept cars can barely move under their own power, the Furai has done laps at Laguna Seca.

By using a new rotary engine the Furai was able to put out 450-hp, running on potent E100 fuel.

In many ways it was a style piece meant to inspire the brand, but with the reveal of the Shinari concept and the introduction of Mazda’s new KODO design language, the Furai’s influence on the brand is essentially nonexistent.

    Left out the Dodge Copperhead!? 

  • Catfan

    It should have been branded as an Imperial.  Great idea!

    I saw the Dodge Demon in person about 2 years ago at Trenton engine north. It looked so much better in person.

    Concept cars are never meant to “go anywhere”. They built as showy platforms, for various new features. There are probably many features, on your own car, that debuted at a car show, on a concept car.
