GTR rally homologation model sported a front air dam, be-winged rear window, vented bonnet and wider wheels. Equipped with stiffer suspension, bigger brakes and strengthened five-stud wheel hubs, the high-performance Mazda also boasted a reworked 1.8 litre DOHC engine complete with stronger connecting rods / pistons, sodium filled valves, larger injectors, a baffled inlet manifold, front-mounted intercooler, and an IHI VJ-23 ball bearing water-cooled turbocharger. Removing a screw on the back of the instrument cluster, labelled 180kph, was a quick and easy way of disabling the factory speed limiter!
