The Mazda Eunos Cosmo series JC was launched in 1990 as Mazda’s premier specialty coupe. Mazda had been using the much-refined 13B 2-rotor engine, but now also added a 3-rotor 20B, the first triple-rotor in a production car.
Fitted with a twin-turbo, this engine delivered 276hp at 6.500 rpm and 296.5 lb-ft of torque. This high-powered engine was complimented by the easy and graceful styling of a specialty coupe. Further refinements were made in minor changes in 1991, 1992, and 1994, but the Cosmos model was discontinued in 1996.
The suspension is double-wishbone on the front wheels and multilink on the rear wheels. It displays ferocious power once you put your foot down. Getting a good speed requires careful and theoretically correct driving. However, with a bit of tuning to boost its potential, the Mazda Eunos Cosmo can become quite a competitive car.
