So, what’s so special about Mazda rotary engines? Mazda has passionately supported rotary engine research and development for over 50 years and made significant investment in the technology because of the enormous potential for rotary engines to power more environmentally friendly cars. As a leader in rotary engine technology, Mazda is looking to use its groundbreaking research and expertise in conjunction with the development of new hydrogen and hybrid models. Rotary engines make use of the rotation of triangular rotors to generate power, rather than exploiting reciprocating pistons, as are found in conventional car engines.

Amongst other exciting models, the video shows the RX-3, famous for its racetrack success, and a first-generation Mazda RX-7.
