Mazda Cosmos Sport 110S

The Mazda Cosmos Sport (sold overseas as the 110S) was the world's first mass-production rotary-engine sports car. It was first unveiled at the Tokyo motor show in 1963, but it was still a work in progress - with the Wankel powerplant causing problems and road-ready versions wouldn't be available until 1967. By then, Mazda's engineers had carried out more than 700,000km of high-speed endurance test drives. The 982cc twin rotor was good for 110PS and a stop peed of 185km/h.
