Japanese automakers have ascended the auto industry’s ladder to become some of the most popular and consumer friendly in the whole world.

Mazda, specifically, has etched its name in automotive lore by specializing in small, sporty, and quick cars that offer drivers not only a thrilling experience, but also top-notch efficiency and scalpel-like precision handling. Although the company has never produced cars meant to compete with the likes of Ferrari or Aston Martin, consumers have looked toward the Mazda line for affordable and efficient options that still offer speed and fun.

Today, we take a look at the 15 fastest vehicles Mazda has ever produced.

2. Mazda RX7 Spirit R

By all accounts, the RX-7 Spirit R is the fastest Mazda vehicle ever produced. It has quite an interesting history, as well, as detailed by the folks over at Motor Trend. A small batch of these cars were produced for Japanese drivers only — with the exception of one, which was made for a Mazda executive. Dubbed a Spec-A version, the one offshoot is actually the only left-hand drive Spirit R in existence. This car is powered by a twin-turbo 1.3-liter twin-rotary engine, allowing it to rattle off some impressive performance feats, finding a 0-60 time of roughly 5 seconds. Most of us will probably never get the chance to see one in person, let alone come across the lone North American model. But as it were, the RX-7 Spirit R holds the top spot on the list of Mazda’s fastest cars.
