Allan Moffat Replica 1983 Group C RX-7

Photos by Davyn Smith

The original car that this replica was based on was, unfortunately, destroyed in an accident.

Moffat (who had previously had success with the big Ford Falcons in Australian Group C Racing Cars) brought a little RX-7 in from the U.S., and turned Australian motorsport around to the point where the mighty little rotary was banned from competition!

The little peripheral-ported 330hp 13B Rotary blew the doors off the big Holden and Falcon V8s! Couple the extraordinary speed with outstanding handling, the RX-7 took several wins at circuits around the country including Lakeside and Sandown, and winning the 1082 and 1984 Australian Endurance championships.

    • I love the way they have dominated just about every class of racing they have gone into - right up until they ban them :)
