Here is a rare beastie, a Spark 1/43 model of the Chevron B16 which ran with a Mazda rotary engine at Le Mans in 1970.  Unfortunately it had over heating problems in the 3rd hour and retired.  I took this shot from the web, still trying to find one (at a reasonable price) for my Le Mans collection.

Kyosho - Mazda 787B (1:64)



Speedy - Mercedes-Benz C111 (1:64)



Hot Wheels - Mazda Furai (1:64)

Got some more scale models with Wankel engines, but we already had the Cosmo and te Ro80. I think these three are nicely going the way of fifty. Having said that, the German Wikipedia only lists like 40 or so, so some doubles maybe needed?

they're light and fast but useless for towing anything
 


 


 


Funnily enough, I had a 2nd gen RX7 when I was in college. It said in the handbook in big bold letters "This car is not suitable for fitment with a towbar or for towing anything" or words to that effect.
