Mazda and the rotary engine – a synonymous pairing best represented by the Mazda RX-7; the loud, high-revving rotary, paired with the lightweight, perfectly balanced, incredibly aerodynamic body. The already powerful Mazda twin-rotor 100 hp engine saw a further evolution with the 1985 redesign that brought the RX-7 more in line with the likes of Porsche. It also bumped the power of that rotary design up to 146 hp and added a turbocharger.

— Official description [1]

The 1985 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE - abbreviated as Mazda RX-7 '85 - is a RWD sports car by Mazda featured in Forza Motorsport 4 as part of the April Alpinestars Pack and in all subsequent Motorsport main titles, although it was featured in Forza Motorsport 5 as part of the Alpinestars Car Pack.

It also appears in Forza Horizon 4 since Update 24.

Synopsis

The 1985 Mazda RX-7 GSL-SE is a first generation model of the Mazda RX-7 codenamed SA22C or FB. It was produced from 1975 to 1985, and replaced by the FC series that was made available as the 1990 Mazda Savanna RX-7.

The GSL-SE trim was offered from 1984 to 1985, and added a limited-slip differential as well as improved brakes and suspension.

Drivetrain

Conceived as a light sports, the 1985 features a rotary engine mounted behind the front axle for a balanced weight distribution on the chassis.[2] The rotary engine, which requires less space in the chassis than piston engines, outputs 135 hp (101 kW) from only 1.3 liter displacement.

Unlike newer Mazda RX-7 models in the Forza series, the 1985 RX-7 has a naturally-aspirated rotary engine rather than a turbocharged variant.
