The Founder Of Liberty Walk Owns A Rather Amazing Mazda RX-3

Wataru Kato is not just the founder of one of Japan’s most well-known tuning companies, Liberty Walk, he is also the proud owner of a fleet of vintage sports cars that could make the most seasoned car collectors blush with jealousy.

Among Kato-san’s most recent acquisitions is a classic Mazda RX-3 that has been fully kitted out with the brand’s most famous array of interior and exterior modifications.

From the outside, there’s no mistaking this RX-3 for another. It has been fitted with a totally custom widebody kit that incorporates huge black wheel arches and a black front splitter that narrowly misses the ground. There’s also a set of tiny wing mirrors, a decklid lip spoiler and a set of massively wide wheels obligatory for any Liberty Walk creation.

It even has the same yellow and green paint scheme as a particularly insane Liberty Walk McLaren 650S. However, don’t think for a second this RX-3 is all show and no go.

Under the hood, it features an extensively modified and bridge-ported 12A rotary engine that squeezes out an impressive 200 hp with all that grunt transferred straight through the rear wheels.

    Love the RX-3; not-so-much the Liberty Walk mods. Too much flare…

  • MB_G500

    Looks like those dog “cones of shame” wrapped around the wheels are all dented and made of plastic bottles. Other than that ( and the missing rear bumper) lovely car.

    Cartoonish, like something out of a pixar movie.

    why did he put all that construction paper around the wheels?

  • KidRed

    The fenders and tiny wheels looks beyond ridiculous. I’d love to see this closer to stock, I like the body style.
