2020 Lexus GS F, “Days of Thunder” video game, Toretto’s Mazda RX-7: Today’s Car News

By -

We slid behind the wheel of the 2020 Lexus GS F before the GS lineup rolls into the sunset. With a silky-smooth naturally aspirated 5.0-liter V-8, sharp and functional exterior design, and a firm yet comfortable suspension, we were reminded why the GS F has a special place in our hearts. We certainly won’t miss that infotainment system, though.

Craig Lieberman, technical advisor for the Fast and Furious movies, took us behind the scenes on a deep dive look at Dominic Toretto’s 1993 Mazda RX-7. The modified Mazda was rented from a private owner and made about 305 horsepower at the wheels. The rotary engine sounded odd to keen observers as the sound was heavily edited, using a mix that included Toyota 1JZ and 2JZ engines.

An unreleased “Days of Thunder” video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System was discovered and reconstructed by digital archivists at the Video Game History Foundation. Chris Oberth, a video game developer, co-authored the game. Oberth died in 2012 and the game was discovered in a pile of software that was donated to the Video Game History Foundation.
