History: The prototype first appeared at the Tokyo
Motor show in 1964. The first production prototype car was
shown in 1966. The car was developed specifically for Mazdas
version of the NSU Wankel engine. Planned more as a test platform
than for mass production, it was intended for the Japanese
market only. The cars were made in right hand drive only.
This Series II car was purchased new by a US Air Force U2
pilot stationed in Japan. He subsequently imported the car
to the US and kept it in excellent condition for 30 years.
There are 6 Cosmo 110Ss in the US. This is the only
Series II model in the country.
Production: A total of 1519 cars were built. (343 series
1, 1176 Series II). The Series II was far superior with 18
extra horsepower, adding 10 mph to the top speed, 5-speed
gearbox, 15-inch instead of 14-inch wheels, servo assist brakes,
revised front valance and the wheelbase extended by 6 inches
to allow for larger seats and more interior room.
