Today we bring some very good news for those of you who are fans of the rotary engine as Mazda has announced plans to bring it back to life after several years of hiatus. It’s only a concept for this moment, but the spectacular RX-VISION pictured here is a taste of what’s to come as most likely Mazda will launch a new RX-badged model in the years to come.

Let’s start with the design which is the result of Mazda’s latest take on the KODO language and dare we say they did a breathtaking job as the coupe looks beautiful from all possible corners. It’s aggressive and stylish at the same time while the front end looks very mean with that hexagonal grille that extends to the sides and connects with the very slender full LED headlights.

The car has also received vented front fenders and hood, a rear diffuser and a dual exhaust setup while the large alloy wheels give the RX-VISION concept a muscular look when you look at the side profile. The layout of the taillights is without any doubt a throwback to previous RX models while the sloped roofline is also a tribute to Mazda’s sportscars of the 80s and 90s.

The Japanese marque hasn’t disclosed any technical details concerning the new rotary engine, but they do say it uses the latest technologies and is the end result of a continuous effort by a team of engineers that hasn’t abandoned development after the RX-8 was discontinued several years ago.

Dubbed the SKYACTIV-R, the engine is Mazda’s way of expressing “determination to take on challenges with convention-defying aspirations” and hopefully it will materialize in a production car in the years to come as there are many RX fans out there who want a new sportscar to bring back the glory days of the Mazda’s high-performance cars.
