Mazda’s Familia Presto Rotary Coupe (the word Presto was added later) was launched in 1968 and was produced until 1973 in 2-door as well as 4-door versions. This model was exported abroad to USA, and Australia as the R100 Rotary Coupe.
With a 982 cc rotary engine (Wankel) that gave 100 HP (the name R 100 implied Rotary 100), this car had several new design aspects such as pointed hood, bumper and front grille. Its rear had twin round tail lights, elegant trim panels, cockpit-style dashboard, etc.
The car also performed well in several races such as the 1969 Singapore Grand Prix, where it came behind few Porsche cars in the fifth position. It was in the same position that the car finished at the 1970 West German Touring Car race.
