Mazda Rotary-Powered Matra

Engine Swap: If We Can Put A Man On The Moon, A Mazda Rotary Can Be Installed In A Matra Murena!

Quick! Somebody tell MatraetAlpine!!!!!
I'm dropping out to create a company that starts with motorcycles, then cars, and forty years later signs a legendary Brazilian driver who has a public and expensive feud with his French teammate.

funny... just saw that and thought about posting it here, but alas i was beaten to it. i wonder why he went with the 12a though. seems like a 13b would have been a lot better, except potentially needing ECU control.
Honor. Courage. Commitment. Etcetera.

It was probably what he had on hand. A carburated engine solves alot of headaches too.
