Is this Mazda Autozam AZ-1 the gull-wing you’ve always wanted
A pristine example of the super rare gull-wing Kei car is up for auction
Want a gullwing that’s not going to result in people asking if you’re going to see some serious ‘s**t when you get up to 88mph? Then this Mazda Autzam AZ-1 could fill that gull-winged shaped hole in your life.
This 1992 example has covered under 63,000 miles in the 25 years since it rolled out of the factory. It was imported to the United States in early 2017 where it’s new owner promptly entered it into Monterey car week while winning two awards in The Little Car Show.
All present and correct is the 12-valve turbocharged triple-cylinder 657cc motor making the Kei regulated 63hp which makes its way to the road via a five-speed manual box. The outside is finished in a two-tone mix of Siberia Blue and Venetian Gray with a set of Volk TE37 wheels.
Less than 5,000 of these tiny cars were built and to find one at all, let alone a minter like this one which is a very rare and ultra-cool thing.
Aside from all of the gullwing cool that comes as standard with the AZ-1, one of the other reasons its cool is its diminutive size, just look at it when parked next to a Nissan GT-R R35:
The auction for this Mazda Autozam AZ-1 is at $11,500 at the time of writing and can be found here.
