As part of its continuing celebration of its 100th anniversary, Mazda has produced a short film covering its most significant classic models. Beautifully shot with a 15-minute runtime, it covers the company’s early history before delving into several milestone cars and what makes them special.
The video starts with the Mazda Type-GA three-wheeled truck, before moving onto the revolutionary R360, Familia, and Luce. The rotary era begins with the 1967 Cosmo Sport, followed by the Cosmo AP and original SA22C Savanna RX-7. Finally, there’s two of Mazda’s most popular models, the BD Familia and NA Roadster/Miata. Then Mazda’s head of design Ikuo Maeda talks a bit about how they got the inspiration for the 100th anniversary cars. It’s definitely worth a watch for anyone with an interest in one of Japan’s most unique carmakers.
