Mazda's rotary powered Le Mans racecars of the 1980s and '90s are some of the most incredible sounding cars ever produced. Last month one of these cars, a Mazda 767B, hit the track again at the 2014 World Time Attack Challenge in Australia.

It still sounds glorious. And it spits fire.

Mazda 767B At World Time Attack 2014

The 767B is powered by a four-rotor engine that makes north of 600 horsepower. There were only three 767B racecars ever produced, and they raced in various prototype class races across the world from 1988 to 1990. This particular 767B raced at Le Mans in 1989. While the 767B didn't have the outright success it's little brother, the 787B would have, the 767B was quite competitive in its class at the time.
