Assembled model that reproduces another version of the Mazda 787 that the Mazdaspeed team put on the track in its attempt to win the 1991 24 Hours of Le Mans. Mazda's overall result was fantastic, since apart from the victory, the unit with number #56 managed to finish the race, qualifying in eighth position.

Additional details for the Mazda 787 diecast model car:

The Mazda 787 and its evolution, the 787B, were the vehicles built by Mazda to participate in the Spot Prototype championships within Group C, both in the World Championship and in the Japanese Championship, as well as in the 24 Hours of Le Mans of 1990 and 1991. Its design took into account the current regulations for Group C vehicles of the International Federation (FISA) and for GTP vehicles of the International Motor Sports Association (IMSA), combining them so that its 787 could run on both sides of the pond. Mazda 787s have also over time become the last competition cars to use a Wankel rotary engine in the world and Japanese championships. The engine used in the 787 had the designation R26B.

Although the 787 and 787B lacked the one-lap pace of World Championship rivals such as Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar and Porsche, as well as Japanese Championship competitors such as Nissan and Toyota, the Mazdas had a very useful feature in long distance races, such as reliability. This allowed them to compete for their respective championships, and achieve their most relevant success, nothing more and nothing less than the victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1991 driven by Johnny Herbert, Volker Weidler and Bertrand Gachot.

For many years it was the only victory for a Japanese manufacturer at Le Mans, and it took until 2012 for Toyota to add to the list. What it does remain is the only victory for a car that did not have an alternative combustion cycle engine.

A total of two 787s were built in 1990, while three 787Bs were built in 1991 to the new specifications.
