Happy Birthday Cosmo

The Mazda Cosmo Sport, the company’s first sports car and the world’s first two-rotor Wankel automobile, debuted in 1964, with president Tsuneji Matsuda driving it himself into the Tokyo Motor show. After the debut, Hsu says, it took the 47 Samurai three years and 80 test cars to “hammer out the rotary’s gremlins,” after which the Cosmo went on sale in Japan on May 30, 1967. And even though fewer than 1,200 were ever built, the engineering that went into that car changed Mazda forever.

If you would rather look at a video of the car without Jay Leno talking, just some trippy jazz – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fq8Iv_0zAO8 (I’m really partial to those floor mats.)

Or if you would really rather just 3 minutes of Cosmo Kramer entering apartment 5A – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZP8ff8yvKw
