Three-quarter image of the front end of the Mazda Furai. It is a concept car revealed on 27 December, 2007 and manufactured by Mazda. The chassis is based on the Courage Compétition C65 Le Mans Prototype that Mazda last used to compete in the American Le Mans Series, two seasons previously and is designed to use E100 ethanol fuel, it is powered by a new generation 3-rotor wankel engine that puts out 450 bhp. Unlike many concept cars, the Furai is fully functional and is currently being tested at various tracks. It has run at Laguna Seca and Buttonwillow. Head designer, Laurens van den Acker, has stated in an interview with Top Gear magazine that there are possibilites of the Furai being used for racing in Le Mans, and he also has strong hopes that the car could be brought to the market.
