The Mazda 787B is famous for its ear-piercing wail at high RPM, made possible by its four-rotor engine. Rarely do we take time to listen to how insane these cars sound at idle.


It’s like a lumpy cam on a big V8, only buzzier and faster. It’s like a hundred lawnmowers being thrown out of a window of a high rise building. It’s like, well, just listen to it.

Watch how the cameraman jumps when this thing fires up. God, I love these stupid, stupid engines.
