The team of ck-modelcars.de is not that wrong with the headline of this article: In car-conversations of men with gasoline in their blood, the Mazda Cosmo Sport rarely occurs. This is due to the fact that the right-hand drive vehicle produced between 1967 and 1972 with its number of 1,176 units is or was very rare on the road. The coupe wrote automotive history: It was the first mass-produced car with a twin-disk rotary engine. The modelcars that Kyosho has released under item number KSR12004W have appeared in the so-called Samurai line: high quality miniatures based on role models from Japan made of resin plastic. In the case of the Mazda Cosmo Sport even in the trendy large scale 1:12; limited to 600 units. And these, as a glance reveals, are of the very highest quality of workmanship.
Let us stay with the processing: The collector can expect a flawless finish of the surface as well as the chrome parts. The inserts for glazing as well as the head lights are top! The attachment parts like the talbot-mirrors on the front fenders also seem outstanding. Front grille and rear lights know also how to convince: A proper eyecatcher, these about 35 centimeter long modelcars - no wonder, they are from Kyosho! Doors and hoods remain closed, but a look into the interior compensates for that with its immaculately executed details. The Mazda Cosmo Sport 1967 had 81 kW / 110 hp under the bonnet. It was sold mostly in Japan. Good that at least the modelcars made its way to Germany and Europe. Its unique performance and its currently unbeatable price make them to a top-tip!
