The Mazda RX-3 SP was a US-only appearance package that included unique blacked-out bumpers trim and louvers, a snazzy decal package, and a jutting chin spoiler. Though nothing of note was added to the 12A rotary engine within, the SPs have become highly coveted cars amongst early Mazda collectors just for their sheer rarity and embodiment of 70s styling. Now there’s that has reached $24,000.
The ad itself is horrible, with only four photos and precious little information. The car, located in Puerto Rico, is said to be an unrestored original. The car features all-wheel disc brakes, an LSD, and aircon.
The Impulse Blue color (paired with white decal outlines) is one of the more striking of the six colors available on the SP. This particular example does look very clean, with a rust-free undercarriage and the underside of the spare tire well still as blue as the shiny side and an un-cracked SP air dam. A few years ago, we featured a white one that sold for approximately $11,000.
Despite the sparse information, however the car has already reached over double that number with five bids and three days . Where will it end?
