Detailed description

We make no secret of the fact we’re passionate about Group A rally specials here at JT AutoClassics so for our next project we decided to search for another rare and interesting road going rally car.By chance we stumbled across this homologation special from Mazda in Japan,called the Familia GT-R it was Mazda’s official homologated entry into Group A rallying in the early 90’s but sadly Mazda pulled the plug on the program before the car ever had a chance to compete as a works car  despite showing great promise during testing driven by Finnish rally legend Hannu Mikkola.These cars are now super rare having all but dissapeared in Japan and examples like this are fast becoming a collectable piece of rally history and deserve to form part of any serious rally collection.

We are therefore delighted to offer this exceptional example to market,one of 200 cars produced in factory UF white and powered by a 1.8L DOHC turbocharged engine producing 210bhp with full time 4WD and viscous LSD this is a serious little machine! Having covered a mere 45,131 miles and being a mechanically un-molested example right down to its original factory exhaust we decided to export it to the UK and restore it with many hours of tlc involved to present it in the conditon you see here.

Having undergone a light restoration at our UK workshop it has been treated to a full bare metal respray by MW Bodyshop,one of the best bodyshops in the UK,no half measure job here,this was a full glass out,doors off and shuts painted along with bonnet and rear hatch painted both sides in original Mazda UF white,the end result is simply stunning. Many virtually impossible to find new Mazda oe exterior trim parts have been sourced direct from Mazda,Japan.A brand new set of OZ Rally Racing wheels along with new Toyo TR-1 tyres have recently be fitted to complete the authentic rally look,standard fully refurbished stock wheels and new Toyo tyres are also supplied.Interior work includes retrimming of the oe steering wheel in full grey alcantara with red stitching which not only looks and feels stunning but adds a more bespoke feel to the interior.headlining has also been retrimmed.

Mechanical work will include cambelt + waterpump and major service with full fluids,new brake discs+pads all round plus ball joints/bushes and track rod ends,all genuine Mazda parts sourced direct from Japan.A check over and dyno run by a very well respected local rally car specialist will also be performed plus a four wheel geometry setup to ensure it drives perfectly for its new owner.More jobs on the hitlist to complete but this stunning little car is nearly there..
