The Mazda Furai (Japanese: マツダ風籟, Mazda Furai) was a concept track day car, and is the last of the Nagare concept car lineup.
- Text originally from the Mazda Furai's Wikipedia page.
The Furai, whose name literally means "sound of the wind", was the fifth and last of the Mazda Nagare concept car line Mazda introduced in 2006. The Furai's chassis was based on the Courage C65 LMP2 sports prototype that Mazda last used to compete in the American Le Mans Series.
The Furai was designed to use E100 ethanol fuel and was powered by a heavily modified R20B RENESIS 3-rotor wankel engine producing 444 hp (331 kW) and 278 ft·lb (377 N·m). The engine was developed and built by renowned rotary tuner, Racing Beat, who also built the car's rotary-shaped muffler canister.
The Furai was adorned with the number 55, the same number as that of its 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans-winning ancestor Mazda 787B. Unlike many concept cars, the Furai was fully functional and was tested at various tracks, including Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca and Buttonwillow Raceway Park.
Top Gear revealed in late 2013 that the Furai had met its demise by fire during road tests in 2008.
The Mazda Furai was added in the Godly Beasts Update as a high-end Class D car with the following rank statistics:
The Furai excels in acceleration and top speed but has a rather wide drifting radius and below average nitro efficiency. When compared to TVR Griffith, it has a lower top speed but has better nitro efficiency, drifting radius, and acceleration. The Furai is considered to be one of the kings of Class D, along with the Griffith and also the Porsche Taycan Turbo S.
The Furai is used in the Rimac C_Two's Drive Syndicate Event. It is needed for the Mountain Cat tier of the event.
The Mazda Furai was added in the San Diego Harbor Update as a low Class B car with the following rank statistics:
- Starting rank: 1150
- This was changed to 1213 in the Fast Lane Update.
- MAX rank: 1400 (+250)
- This was changed to 1388 (+175) in the Fast Lane Update.
- MAX+PRO rank: 1547 (+147)
- This was changed to 1507 (+107) in the Fast Lane Update.
- Tuning Kit bonus: +50
- This was changed to +53 in the Fast Lane Update.
- Stock to MAX+PRO rank difference: 265
- This was changed to 294 in the Fast Lane Update.
- Nitro Efficiency: 9/15/18
As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update, the Mazda Furai is now a high-end Class C car.
The Mazda Furai boasts good acceleration and excellent handling capabilities but has an inefficient nitro.
Overall, the Furai is largely a collector's item, as there are very rarely Events that involve the Furai as a top-ranked car, and even then, the Ferrari 458 Italia is a much cheaper but better choice. The Furai's poor nitro efficiency limits its ability to compete in Multiplayer, especially due to the emergence of faster, better cars like the TVR Sagaris and BMW 3.0 CSL Hommage. Coupled with the fact that the Furai uses 28 Rotary Engine cards for its Pro Kits, the Furai isn't the best car to buy.
The Mazda Furai had an original buying price of 500,000 that was later increased to 1,250. As of the Fifteenth Anniversary Update it costs 3,000.
As of the 2019 Spring Update, upgrades cost 720,000 while Pro Kits require 240,000, 8 of each Class B Part, 6 Initial & Early Techs each, 8 Mid-Techs and 12 Rotary Engines.
The Mazda Furai counts towards the New Wave collection.
The Mazda Furai is a Tier 4 car, added in update 1.1.0, and is only unlockable through its own Special Event.
