This description is taken from the original Gran Turismo:
The RX-7 FD3S was launched in 1991. The car with the most spartan specs in the current line-up is the Type Z, which was added in the first minor change in 1993, and which succeeds in stretching the power of the RX-7 to the limit. The engine was replaced with a more powerful 261 BHP engine, achieving a power/weight ratio of 10.6 lb/hp. The only model in the RX-7 line-up with an automatic transmission is the Touring X, which replaced the previous automatic model. In this model, the power is reduced to 251 BHP because of the automatic transmission. As sports cars, all of these models give an excellent drive, and the transmission properties of the Type RZ are astounding. These cars are in the top echelon of Japanese sports cars, and hard to fault. Appropriate technique is required to master them.
