Alright class, put your books away. Time for some filmstrips.
Instead of writing a full history of why this new Kyosho model is so cool, we will first let you watch this short clip:
And that rotary roar, beside sounding so…uh…dramatic, actually produced a legendary car. In 1991, it became the first Japanese car to win Le Mans, as well as the only rotary-powered engine to take the honor:
See? You didn’t need my rambling writing today. If you didn’t know the significance of this car, now you do, and you can see why it is great to have such a perfect miniature version made by Kyosho.
(You can find the 787B at Daboxtoys or on ebay…)

I have that one too. It may interest you to know that it's a re-release. Kyosho made the 1/64 787B casting in the Beads Collection in the past.
I have the Tomica version, bought it years ago without knowing its significant history
It's all about the Beads. Sadly I only have the efini.
I have it, and at $35 it's the most I have ever paid for a 1/64, and worth every penny. My favorite 1:1 race car and my favorite piece in my collection.
