2022 Mazda RX-10 – The striking Mazda RX-Vision was unveiled at the 2015 Tokyo Motor Show, giving us hope that the Japanese automaker is planning to build the next motorized sports car shortly as a follow-up to its RX-8. However, that day isn’t here and has led renderers to think of the possibilities of what a future powered by a rotary Mazda performance car might appear like.
2022 Mazda RX-10 New Design
The latest concept is the creation by Maximilian Schneider, an exterior designer at Mitsubishi Motors Japan, who is the designer of a stunning Mazda Hypercar Concept. It’s known as”the Mazda RX-10 Vision Longtail, it is planned as an electric halo-powered hydrogen hypercar that could be driven on the roads or even homologated for race tracks to compete in the upcoming Le Mans Hypercar class.
On the front, at the front, the RX-10 Vision Longtail retains Mazda’s distinctive grille that is flanked by LED headlights. But apart from that, it stands out from the other car within the Japanese automaker’s lineup. The low-slung style, huge wheel arches, and wraparound windshield create an RX-10 Vision Longtail with a very impressive appearance. The long rear ends are similar to that of the McLaren F1 GTR Longtail that competed in the 1997 24 Hours of Le Mans and was the inspiration for the McLaren 765LT and 675LT road cars. Round taillights joined by the full-width light bar are adorning the rear.
The engine that powers the hypercar in theory is the 2.3-liter 3-rotor turbocharged engine which is the sole source of 780 horsepower. In addition, there will be two electric motors running the front axle each with 125 hp which translates to the total power of 1,030 hp from the three-rotor as well as two electric motors. Schneider said to CarScoops that, theoretically speaking the power would be sufficient for the hypercar to reach speeds of 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles an hour) in less than 2.5 seconds, and an impressive two-and-a-half mph (427 kilometers/h) maximum speed.

This configuration would allow this setup to allow the RX-10 Vision Longtail to rocket from 62 miles per hour in 2.5 seconds and achieve the maximum speed of 265 miles per hour. Large use of lightweight components will also reduce it down in weight to 3,196 pounds. While we’re not anticipating Mazda to develop a halo-style hypercar anytime very soon, the recent patent filings offer some hope that the awaited Mazda RX-9 will be available for sale shortly.
