Mazda RX-7 "Slammed and Furious" Shows Radical Tuner Look

Some of the four-wheeled toys in the Fast and Furious franchise enjoyed more exposure than others throughout the various movies of the series. The Mazda RX-7 is definitely one of the machines that stayed on the screen, and the rendering we have here has taken a famous example to the next level.

The pixel portrait targets the sideways animal that was the RX-7 used in "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift," which enjoyed even more attention than the car in the original motion picture or the example featured in the "2 Fast 2 Furious" production.

Sure, the rotary monster Han sent sideways in "Tokyo Drift" was orange, but while that shade had been used for filming, its original hue was red, which is just one of the reasons the latter color was selected for this digital interpretation. To that end, you should know that Khyzyl Saleem, the artist responsible for the work, happens to own a red RX-7.

And while the Photoshop specialist usually performs extremely complex transformations or even designs virtual vehicles from the ground up, this approach is rather limited. Even so, we've decided to give the project the nickname in the title.

To be more precise, the rotary-powered sports car has been brought extremely close to the road, while it now rides on the type of custom wheels that would turn everybody's heads at Cars & Coffee.

As fans of the series will tell you, this FD-generation RX-7 sports a widebody kit developed by Japanese specialist Veilside. Dubbed Fortune, the aero package has arguably been an opinion splitter (pun intended) ever since its arrival, and it seems this aspect isn't going to change.

In fact, here's the pixel master sharing his view on the kit: "I've never been a fan of the Veilside kit for the RX7 [...]. It just doesn't sit right with me for some reason, maybe because it's so far stretched from the original body and no pop-ups. But what I admire and respect about it, is the fact it broke those boundaries and was so extreme. This was my attempt at trying to make myself like it,"
