Factory81 Pandem Boss RX-7 FD transkit Over the years Mazda added some subtle styling cues to its RX-7 designs to refer to its sporty predecessor, the Savanna/Rx-3.

A set of fender flares, a straight chin spoiler and a steep duck-tail spoiler all echo the looks of the famous Savanna race cars.
Factory81 managed to capture the looks of the Pandem Boss RX-7 very well.
This transkit consists of a 10 part resin body kit.
