Here’s a fascinating up-close look at a rare 1992 AZ-1, which is basically a mid-engined kei-class sports car, designed and manufactured by Mazda under its Autozam brand. Power comes from a Suzuki-sourced turbocharged 657cc engine, used by the Mazda Carol, producing 63 hp at 6500 rpm and 63 lb·ft of torque at 4000 rpm.
Unlike the vehicle you see Jay Leno driving above, this one comes equipped with a front bumper, front hood, and rear spoiler from an M2 1015, a limited-run model of the AZ-1 offered by another Mazda subsidiary, M2 Incorporated. The fog lamps are built diretly into the front hood and were most recently replaced in 2017. Other features include tri-spoke 13″ Enkei wheels wrapped in 165/60 Yokohama Ecos tires, bucket seats upholstered in cloth with blue inserts, a Kenwood CD player as well as RÄZO gas and clutch pedals.
