The resulting car is very similar to the one that drove through the streets of a fictional city in the computer game GTA V. The car was named Banshee 900R.

All of us have our own dream cars. Let it be Lamborghini, Ferrari or Maserati, most of us work all our lives in order to find money and someday buy the car they always dreamed of. However, some people prefer to build such cars themselves.

One such enthusiast is Adam Taylor, who lives in Oahu, Hawaii. He spent 10 years creating a unique “supercar” that could compete on an equal footing with Italian counterparts in style and power. The car was named RX-777, and it is based on the basis of the Japanese sports Mazda RX-7 FD.

According to Taylor, his RX-777 is a project that began when he was still in college and graduate school.


Due to lack of time and resources, it took him a decade to put the car in order – all work was completed quite recently.

The RX-777 weighs 1,224 kg. It is wider than the American Dodge Viper, and its wheelbase is shorter than that of the Mazda MX-5 Miata. The Aston Martin Vantage headlights are easy to spot from the front. Taillights, as well as the overall shape of the back of the car is very similar to the British Lotus Elise. Under the hood is the engine LS V8, which is able to develop 950 horsepower at 8000 rpm, the maximum speed is 322 km / h.

The resulting car has a striking resemblance to the Banshee 900R sports car from the GTA V computer game.
