Take note of what’s in the engine bay: a turbo 13B from an FD3S RX7!!!
A very fast turbo Escort from The Land Down Under:
This one is a little gaudy, but the engineering behind it is phenomenal so I had to include it.
Still rocking the 1.8L BP, rotated 90 degrees and built to stupid power levels.
Escort hatchback with Mazda 323 front end and rocking Nissan Skyline wheels on 5 lug hubs.
Not sure if on airride or hydros.
Every other angle of this car is TERRIBLE.
Mercury Tracer LTS, the mechanical quadruplet to the Mazda Protege LX, Ford Escort GT, and Ford Escort LX-E. DOHC 138hp 1.8L, 5 speed trans, 4 wheel disc brakes, plus a bunch of other little goodies.
I bought this car off craigslist for $500. Drove 330 miles to get it, swapped the bad alternator in the rain in the sellers driveway, then push started it and drove it home. It had Sprint springs, A JDM Mazda GTX strut tower brace, 17x7et38 PCW wheels, full exhaust, modified Honda Accord CAI, and a porsche 911 front lip. It was a great cheap little car, and surprised quite a few people at the local autocrosses when the Falken Azenis RT615’s were on.
