Rotary engines are not known for their torque but in a car that weighs only 1,600 lbs it really doesn’t matter. This is a 1959 Fiat 600 with a 220 horsepower Mazda 12A rotary engine from an early generation Mazda RX-7. The engine runs Dellorto carbs with ITBs and is connected to a four-speed Volkswagen transaxle via a Kennedy clutch. Just about everything else on this car has been upgraded including a roll cage. The car is for sale on eBay but considering they are asking for $34,900 on their listing, I don’t see this meeting the reserve price.
