In the wake of their overall victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1991, Mazda turned their sights to the burgeoning IMSA GTP series in the United States. For the 1992 season, they developed the RX-792P, a slippery prototype coupe powered by Mazda's potent R26B 4-rotor engine. Good for 700 horsepower, the RX-792P should have been a strong contender in the GTP category, but teething problems relegated it to also-ran status behind the dominant Toyotas and Nissans of the day, with a second-place finish at Watkins Glen standing as one of the lone bright spots of the season. Cancellation of the 4-rotor program meant that the RX-792SP would not return for 1993, leaving its massive potential unfulfilled.
The beautiful-but-doomed Mazda RX-792P racer is now the subject of a highly detailed 1:43-scale resin replica by TSM. Lustrous silver paint drapes the exactingly crafted body, accented by accurate aerodynamic components and wide race rims. Inside, a faithfully rendered cockpit adds a further level of detail. For devoted fans of rotary-powered Mazdas, the 1:43-scale RX-792P by TSM is a must-have miniature car.
