Tomica Limited Vintage Neo Mazda 787B Legend of Rotary Machines

The hero will always be remembered, but the legend is never dead … That is the exact expression of the Mazda 787B, the first Japanese racing car to conquer the Le Mans circuit, France, in a 24-hour endurance race in 1991. Unfortunately after becoming champions, the committee banned the use of machinery rotary used 787B in the following season.

Behind the story of the controversy over the ban that happened to, Mazda 787B, now the Legend gets a respectable position as the legend of the manufacturer from Hiroshima and gets a special “throne” at the Mazda Museum in Hiroshima.

If you visit the Mazda museum we will see the 787B which is displayed along with its controversial engine. Controversial because some people believe that the ban is a conspiracy because the Mazda 787B is too strong so it is difficult to beat.

What is clear, in 1991 Mazda became the first Japanese manufacturer to win Le Mans, although two other Japanese manufacturers were actually more favored. History also notes, the 787B became the first racing car to win Le Mans using a rotary engine by completing a distance of 4923.2 km with an average speed of 205.1 kph.

The 787B victory story is no less interesting. Driven alternately by three drivers, Johnny Herbert from England, Bertrand Gachot from France, and Volker Weidler from Germany, the number 55 car started at number 19. Two other 787B Mazdas with numbers 18 and 56 were in the order of 23 and 30.

At the beginning of the race, the car with number 55 has been thrust into third position. A few rounds later, it was in second place behind the Mercedes-Benz C11 driven by Michael Schumacher, Fritz Kreutzpointner and Karl Wendlinger. When the race lasted 22 hours, C11 was forced to enter the pit due to engine problems.

In the final pit stop, Herbert asked to keep driving the car and take the 787B past the finish line as champions. But at the end of the race, Herbert experienced fatigue and dehydration so he did not take the podium with Weidler and Gachot.

Now, the story of the race is always remembered at the Mazda Museum. The legend of the 787B gets its throne as the pride of the country of the Rising Sun.

For those of you who want to have the legend of the Mazda 787B, there is now a collection from Tomica Limited Vintage Neo with a scale of 64. Get the collection immediately before it runs out, because I’m sure this will be a Super Treasure Hunt item. For the price, if it’s not mistaken, it’s at US $ 72.

You will get Hot Wheels Mazda 787B with white race number 18, the details are also quite good for Hot Wheels. You could say this is the best diecast from Hot Wheels for the level of detailing in the racing car version.

but it is indeed a big difference compared to Tomica Limited Vintage Neo, but if you really want to collect Mazda 787B collections and budget is minimal, Hot Wheels can be a solution. But if you really don’t care about the budget and are more concerned with the level of detail and good packaging, then the most appropriate choice for the scale of 64 falls on Neo Tomica Limited Vintage Mazda 787B Legend of Rotary Machines.

Nissan Skyline Super Silhouette Metal Diecast 64

Somehow this month there were 2 brands plus 1 brand in the previous month issued the same product, the Tomica Nissan Skyline RS 3 Super Silhouette. Namely Autoart with a scale of 18 in January, Hot Wheels super silhouette series, and Tomica with its premium edition.

And the most recent Tomica has just been released and many are opening PO. In fact, if you think about this model of the car, the original version was named Tomica, but instead Tomica made the latest model of the car. Maybe Tomica just realized that his car in the 80’s had a lot of fans, and was even considered a Beast Legend. Plus for the version of the car model, it was also in demand and many wanted to collect it. So that Tomica helped reduce it with premium wrapping.

If you are truly a true fan of the skyline I think the choice of Tomica is far more appropriate. Tomica’s Diecast, the original version of the Tomica Nissan Skyline RS 3 Super Silhouette is just synchronous. For the tomica version released on a scale of 64, the diecast metal body base. Tomica Premium Skyline Turbo Silhouette is produced in the amount of 5.555 pcs.

Let’s flashback the story of the Tomica Nissan Skyline Turbo Super Silhouette triumph. But Before reviewing this “devil” car, it’s better if we know about the Super Silhouette first. The Super Silhouette competition is actually a sportcar class with the same regulations as Group.5 from the FIA, which was famous in the 80s throughout the world.

In Japan alone, the Super Silhouette is a special class at the Fuji Grand Championship Series championship, which began from 1979 to 1984, and the Super Silhouette is the most famous & popular class for racing fans in Japan. Want to know the reason?

Super Silhouette, which has regulations, namely the race car used, must have the same silhouette and chassis as the factory version of the car that follows it. The rest? Free! Because of that, monsters were born with designs that were brutal & excessive, in order to pursue maximum speed!

The base of the Nissan Skyline Super Silhouette is Skyline R30 from the 1982 Group.C class, which has a regulation similar to the Super Silhouette and is dubbed Tekkamen (Iron Mask). Finally, Nissan and Hasemi Motorsport rebuilt the Skyline, using a very large body kit, in pursuit of high press power. This body kit design is also the inspiration for the Bosozoku gang to modify their car to resemble the “Granchan” / Grand Champion.

Hasemi Motorsport, uses a chassis with a pipe frame made by Nova Engineering for Group.5, which makes the size of the Skyline much larger than the standard version. The body kit constructor is Mooncraft, the name behind Japanese famous supercars & racing cars such as Mooncraft Shiden & Yamaha OX9-11. The design does look primitive compared to modern racing cars, but it looks more frightening & frightening, even when compared to modern Nissan racing cars such as the GT-R.

There is also a unique modification of this car, which is on the wheels, the design of this alloy itself is quite unique, because the ventilation plate is installed, which (at that time) is considered capable of flowing the wind to the brake device so that the temperature is better maintained.

The uniqueness of the body and wheel design, of course, comes from the engine used. Relying on the LZ20B inline engine that is installed the “hardcore” T05B turbo from Garrett AiResearch, the engine based on the L20B’s Datsun 200SX engine, is capable of spouting power of 570hp @ 7600rpm, aka higher than Formula 1 cars in the 80s.

How was Hasemi-san’s achievement with Nissan Skyline Turbo Super Silhouette? Like this appearance
2 wins in the 1982 season,
5 wins in 1983,
and 2 wins in 1984,

even though they have to compete with legendary racers like H. Yanagida, and K.Hoshino. This car is always brought by Nismo to every festival and becomes a resident of the Nissan Museum.
