While many concept cars are just rolling shells made to look pretty on automakers’ podiums, the Furai was designed from the get-go to perform, with a 458-horsepower 3-rotor Wankel engine amidships constructed by Mazda specialists Racing Beat. The chassis is constructed by Courage, and the overall mechanical package strongly resembles the Mazda/Courage ALMS cars. But the exterior resembles nothing else, on this world at least. The ultimate example of Mazda’s “Nagare” design language (“nagare” means “flow,” and “furai” means “the sound of the wind,” in Japanese), the Furai’s intakes, grille, and rear fascia are dominated by curving shapes, the nose draws out to a sharp point, and the teardrop-shaped cockpit is drawn back nearly to the rear of the car—the overall look is organic and mechanical at the same time. The fully functional racer (wearing the same #55 as the Le Mans-winning 787B) is capable of competition if Mazda chooses to race it, and would surely cause a sensation on the track.
