Some people just can't keep a secret. Such is the case for the concept that
will display at the
Detroit Auto Show
in a couple of weeks. Mazda released
a teaser shot
a couple of weeks ago of the Furai concept. The car is based on the chassis of the Courage C65 that Mazda ran in the American
Series two years ago. As it was on the track, the Furai is packing a three rotor Wankel engine, but it's now fueled by E100 rather than racing gasoline. The styling of the car combines cues of the concepts Mazda has released over the past year such as the Nagare and Ryuga with a full-bodied LMP racer.
