Top Gear Admitted to Having Destroyed the Mazda Furai

Top Gear Admitted to Having Destroyed the Mazda Furai

Remember the Mazda Furai? It's the concept car from which all of Mazda's current designs spring, and it was also packing thoroughbred racing guts. It was packing a 3-rotor wankle engine that put out 450 horses. The designed had even hoped to make a production version (that we would have sold our families to buy) and to race it in Le Mans as a successor to Mazda's Le Mans-winning 787B.

Sadly, that beautiful car is no more, because it burst into flame and burned to a crisp while in Top Gear's care. We're not sure exactly how it happened, but the picture is heartbreaking. Can we ever forgive the venerable British motor-mag? (Hint: the answer is "Yes")
