The new AutomotiveArticles.com Feature Car is Norman Vigus' silver 1992 Mazda RX-7 rotary. This feature car comes to us all the way from across the Atlantic. Living in the UK Norman has made quite a stir with this heavily modified FD by having it featured in several magazines. With such an impressive list of performance modifications and a stunning exterior makeover, we here at AA can easily understand why this RX-7 has caught everyone's eye.

    This feature car is currently being showcased in the British "Japanese Performance" magazine. Not only is Norman's car in the magazine, it has a full 7 page spread! We would tell everyone to go check it out as we are confident you would not be dissapointed. However, for us state side, this magazine may be a little difficult to get our hands on. In addtion to the magazine spot, this feature car has also been selected to appear on the DVD cover of the official "Jap Show" held in June of this year at the Santa Pod dragway in the UK. Very impressive!

    While being on DVD covers and in magazines may be the end all be all for some enthusiasts. We here at AA have always leaned more to the performance side of aftermarket modification. Fortunately, this amazing RX-7 does not dissapoint in this department either. With a full Garret T4 and all the supporting goodies, this feature car can cut low 12's all day long on street tires and put down a whopping 444 horsepower and 340 foot pounds of torque! Covering both show and go, this silver rotary is nothing shy incredible.
