However, as it’s such a rare car,it was difficult to find good footage for it. So therefore, we’re skipping this one. Starting off on our list, we’ve got the Honda NSX MK1.

It was better than Ferraris of the time, andis now considered a classic. Second on our list, is the Mazda RX7 FD of 1991. This onehas a 2-rotor engine, 1. 3L, codenamed 13B-REW. It’s a Twin-Turbo unit making 270 horsepower. The engine is put in the front, it’s got rear-wheel-drive, it’s lightweight and it revs to 8000RPM. Onthe 3rd place we’ve got the Mitsubishi GTO of 1990. Thisone has a twin-turbo V6 motor, codenamed 6G72, at 3 litres, making 300 horsepower.
