Khyzyl Saleem Debuts LTO’s Full Widebody Kit for the Mazda FD3S RX-7

The Mazda RX-7 was, in its glory days, one of the most important cars in the world. You could turn up to a show in a custom one of these and people would walk past Ferraris and Lamborghinis to look under your hood.

Today, the Japanese sports car is once again deserving of the spotlight, thanks to a special widebody kit developed by none other than Khyzyl Saleem aka The Kyza.

The 28-year-old self-taught concept artist has shaped the car world in many unseen ways: official concepts, tuning projects, video games, and more SEMA specials than we can remember. He’s also been quite fanatic about the 1982 FD3S RX-7 that he owns, and we always believed his internal vision would eventually become reality.

Let’s get the important facts out of the way first. The kit is launched by the LTO (Live to Offend) brand under which Kyza has also introduced a set of RX-7 window louvers and a myriad of E30 BMW M3 packages (that we love). The widebody treatment is also a collaboration with a shop called Kingdom Carbon, which allowed for a full carbon fiber option.

Kyza states that it was inspired by his favorite RX-7 kits from Japan’s glory days of tuning. Namely, he looked at RE Amemiya and Feed. Those aero packages were quite famous, but this new kit is actually way more aggressive. Both the front and rear fenders bulge out and create long, flowing intakes. Don’t those remind you of a McLaren 720S?

Meanwhile, it can’t be a Kyza project without a deep chin spoiler and some deep rims tucked into the bodywork. The artist promises multiple takes will be presented, as there are several ways to configure this package. The rear wing department is most likely to see a variation in our opinion.

The bad news is that only 25 units will be made. And while the LTO RX-7 comes with a steep sticker price of $9,850, we doubt this was put together for profit. Heck, RX-7 owners are probably used to spending too much money and they’ll option the carbon spec, costing $17,500.
