This Off-Road-Ready Mazda Safari Concept Is What RX7 Rally Car Dreams Are Made Of

Mazda might not be known for its off-road racing pedigree, but the Japanese automaker actually did see a good bit of Group B action back during the early 80s. In fact, just before the division was killed off due to its inherent danger, one FB RX7 under the operation of Ingvar Carlosson even managed to secure a respectable 3rd place at the 1985 Acropolis Rally.

If Mazda were to have continued campaigning cars at the World Rally Championship level, we like to imagine that they’d look a lot like this sweet safari concept whipped up by the ever-talented BradBuilds. As you can see, the FD RX7 has taken to the transformation pretty naturally, swapping out its front splitter and side skirts for a set of brush guards and nerf bars. What’s more, it’s now riding on some massive all-terrain tires with some auxiliary lighting to keep the view clear ahead. But the best part of the build has to be the pair of spares sitting in the hatch — a spot typically reserved for gargantuan spoilers and other street-inspired upgrades. Unfortunately, this is only a render, but you can check it out in full at the link below.
