These very nice JC Cosmo's are getting pretty rare in Australia, especially with the big 20B Triple-rotor engine, which is very desirable for racecars and custom cars.

The Cosmo was produced by Mazda from 1967 to 1995.

The Cosmo name was applied by Mazda to their "halo" vehicles, with the first Cosmo successfully launching the Mazda Wankel engine.

The final generation of Cosmo served as Mazda's flagship vehicle in Japan, being sold as the Eunos Cosmo through its luxury Eunos division in Japan.

Mazda chose to use the name "cosmo", reflecting international cultural fascination with the Space Race, as Mazda wanted to showcase the rotary engine as forward-thinking, with a focus on future developments and technology.

The JC was the ultimate Cosmo, being loaded with a host of luxury options, and optionally having the incredible 3-Rotor 20B-REW Twin Turbo which produced 300hp - but more significantly a bucketload of torque - 403n-m compared to the smaller twin-rotor 13B with 248n-m.
