The Mazda RX7 is a front engined, rear wheeled drive sports coupe powered by a 1300cc turbocharged rotary engine. It was quite simply one of the best ever coupes which had a huge following – over 800,000 cars made! We have been providing Mazda RX7 insurance for over 20 years now, for both UK and imported cars and are extremely well known for this cover, as we are with all Mazda insurance.
Although produced from 1978 to 2002, not many of the original cars exist today in good condition and it tends to be the 3rd generation car made from 1992 that we concentrate on. The RX7 had anywhere from 255 to 280 bhp in this time, and far more was available in the hands of a good engine tuner. The continuous surge of power was provided by 2 sequential turbochargers which coupled with a weight of only 1280 kgs, made the RX7 an extremely rapid car. Some also argued that it was the finest handling car of its type around.
In the UK the Mazda RX7 was sold in a more basic form and consequently a huge number came over from Japan as grey imports. Japanese import car insurance has been a large part of what we do at Keith Michaels for years now and Mazda RX7 insurance has been a big part of that. This is a car that can be extensively modified (as many have) and we build this into our contracts. It is for the experienced driver only though, as those bought up on a diet of modern front wheel drive cars may get a shock when trying out the RX7!

I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
Honest guys. Very straight forward.
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
