As the automotive industry increasingly transitions towards electric vehicles (EVs), early examples of regular production Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) cars are experiencing a remarkable surge in both popularity and value. These classic JDM models, once the epitome of innovation and performance in their heyday, are now highly sought after by collectors and enthusiasts. One of the rarest and most influential amongst the legendary 90s sports cars is the Mazda RX-7, and more specifically, the third generation (FD) of the two-door coupe. Without the foresight of knowing the RX-7 would be valued more than double its original MSRP, many early owners had customized and tuned theirs past the point of collector-grade condition. Sotheby’s Motorsport is proud to showcase this factory, all-original 1994 Mazda RX-7 as one of its newest listings currently up for auction.
This 1994 Mazda RX-7, finsihed in Silverstone Metallic paint over a Black leather interior, is a prime example of automotive rarity. The FD Rx-7’s design, featuring an aerodynamic, aft-sweeping hood and iconic pop-up headlights, is an example of 90s era innovative styling. Positioned on a 95.5-inch wheelbase, the RX-7 boasts a driver-focused cabin, strategically placed towards the rear to enhance its sport appeal. Equipped with the desirable PEG Package, this RX-7 includes a host of premium features such as a metal sunroof, plush leather seating, a convenient rear cargo cover, an AM/FM/Tape stereo system, and cruise control, adding to its luxury and functionality. Throughout the seller’s ownership, meticulous care has been given to preserve its authenticity and condition. This is evident in the original wheels and battery cover, which have been carefully removed and stored, and are now reinstalled for the sale.
Remarkably, this Mazda RX-7 has traveled only 3,460 miles since new, a fact that highlights its exceptional preservation. For collectors and enthusiasts, this 1994 Mazda RX-7 represents an extraordinary opportunity to own a piece of JDM history. Its low mileage, pristine condition, and sought-after configuration make it an ideal collectible for those who appreciate the unique blend of Japanese engineering, timeless design, and pure driving pleasure. Bidding for this museum-grade 1994 Mazda RX-7 auction is now live on Sotheby’s Motorsport until Decmeber 14th.
