Mazda Furai Concept Pictures Revealed Prior To 2008 Detroit Show Debut

Mazda might have intended to fully reveal the Furai concept at the Detroit Show opening on January 13, but thanks to an online leak, we now have the full image gallery of the concept. The Furai is based on a 2005 Courage C65 racing chassis that was used by Mazda in the American Le Mans Series (ALMS) two seasons ago. The concept is powered by a mid-mounted, 450 HP three-rotor rotary engine that runs on E100 Ethanol. The Furai’s body was created by Mazda’s studio in Southern California led by North American design boss Franz Von Holzhausen and it follows in the lines of the company’s latest concepts like the Nagare, Ryuga, Hakaze and Taiki. -Continued after the jump
