The 2008 Mazda Furai is a concept supercar by Mazda featured in Forza Motorsport 3 as part of the Jalopnik Car Pack and in Forza Motorsport 4.

Synopsis

The Furai, whose name means "sound of the wind", was the last of the Nagare line of concept cars made by Mazda from 2006. Unlike other Mazda concept cars, the Furai was fully functional and tested at various tracks, like Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca.

The Mazda Furai used a chassis based on the Courage Compétition C65 LMP race car last used by Mazda in the American Le Mans Series, two seasons previously. The Furai was also designed to make use of E100 ethanol fuel. It wore the number 55, the same as that of its 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning ancestor, the Mazda 787B.

A mid-engined car, the Furai was powered by a heavily modified 2.0L 3-rotor rotary engine, named the R20B RENESIS 3 Rotor Engine, with 466 hp (347 kW) and 278 ft·lb (377 N·m) of torque. Power was sent to the rear wheels via a six-speed X-trac semi-automatic transmission.

The Furai had a weight of 1940 lb (880 kg), yielding a power-to-weight ratio of 530 hp (395 kW) per tonne.
