Ultra-Widebody Mazda RX-7 Is Like a Hot Cup of Coffee in a Digitally Cold Morning

While Mazda’s front/mid-engine RWD rotary engine-powered sports car might not be everyone’s cup of tea, perhaps it’s their coffee. At least in the virtual world, as envisioned by a JDM-loving pixel master.

Musa Rio Tjahjono is like a digital content creator superhero. By day he’s got a cool gig being the Head Designer at West Coast Customs. Which, for many, would be more than enough. But when off duty he also morphs into the virtual artist better known as musartwork on social media.

And this is where he allows his JDM-loving imagination to run rampant. Sometimes his Japanese car passion even becomes too wild. Recent examples include the seemingly unending spree of Honda Civic hatchback creations, as well as his love for excessive widebody kits and bumper-attached high-wing aero goodies.

Frankly, perhaps we might one day understand his obsession with the Civic. But, on the other hand, we are already falling for his series of JDM creations sporting what may soon become a signature treatment. After all, we have seen the winglet-intensive widebody kit and the technically-challenging bumper wing on various previous occasions.

The glossy black bits contrasted beautifully with a crimson 2023 Nissan Z drift queen, made the older Integra a feisty, yellow Time Attack hero, and even looked outrageously fast and furious on a green Mazda RX-7 FD. Only on that occasion, the bumper wing had a curious split design.

Now the CGI expert is back with some additional third-generation Mazda RX-7 FD love. Curiously, in the form of a coffee invitation of sorts, as the rotary-powered JDM sports car was redressed in a stunning brown hue. While they’re not easily observable, the artist also mentioned some matching gold details – on the deep-dish aftermarket wheels, for example.

Additionally, this time around the package is complete – both the signature widebody kit and the bumper-attached wing come in what is turning into a rather traditional form. It is kind of funny to assume these might become conventional since they’re so overtly exaggerated, to begin with. But such are the mysterious ways of the imaginary world...
