Shannons to auction trio of RX-7s
Mazda might not build a rotary-engined car anymore, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still buy one… Shannons will auction off several RX-7s in May.
ALL FROM THE ONE Mazda collection, Shannons will auction off a Series I, Series II, and Series III RX-7 in May. Shannons believes its “the first time that a sequential trio of early RX-7s has been offered for auction in Australia”.
All three of the RX-7s to go across the block are in, essentially, original condition and are listed without reserve. The RX-7s all sit on their original factory alloy wheels, have excellent interiors and, unusually, each is fitted with air conditioning.
Shannons National Auction Manager Christophe Boribon said it was very rare today to find three substantially-unmolested early RX-7s with their correct wheels, trim and anti-pollution gear still intact.
“Because RX-7s have always had strong appeal to younger enthusiasts, they are often modified and can pass through many hands. This is the first time we have seen a collection like this come to auction.”
Shannons expect the Series I model will sell in the $20,000-$26,000 range, with the Series II and Series III models each commanding around $14,000-$18,000.
