van Klink’s beastly RX-8 breaks cover

van Klink RX8 | RallySport Magazine | Australia's Best Rally Magazine

Marcus van Klink’s brand new Mazda RX-8 has broken cover, and the four-time New Zealand historic champion’s new car looks a beast!

The new car features a 20B triple rotor engine, six speed sequential gearbox and MCA suspension, all wrapped in a large amount of carbon fibre.

All bolt on panels, plus the roof, are carbon, while the engine is a peripheral ported Rotary 20B short block (made up using effectively three 13B style housings and rotors, with a custom crank, as opposed to the factory 20B motors that are quite a bit longer).

The car was on the dyno yesterday and produced an incredible 370 bhp at the wheels.

It will run a Quaife six-speed sequential gearbox, the same as those used in New Zealand Super Touring Cars, with AP brakes, and a Motec dash display

As you can see, the car looks magnificent.
