If you're interested in getting a mint example of the 1993-1995 FD Mazda RX-7 in its greatest color -- red -- here's your chance: This perfect 1993 model, sent in by reader Ryan T., is probably the best example of an FD Mazda RX-7 currently for sale anywhere.

The main reason it's so incredible is, of course, the mileage. This RX-7 has gone just 19,103 miles in the last 23 years, which makes it one of the lowest-mileage RX-7 models you'll ever find. More importantly, they're one-owner miles, as this RX-7 was owned and cared for by one single owner in Salisbury, Maryland, from its original purchase date -- January 15, 1994 -- until earlier this year, when it reached the market.

Today, it's offered for sale by Toy Barn in Dublin, Ohio, near Columbus, for an impressive $36,987. That price makes it one of the most expensive RX-7s for sale on Autotrader -- but then again, it's also the nicest. Coincidentally (or perhaps not), the asking price is just slightly above the RX-7's original MSRP in 1993, which was $33,500 with shipping (and before options).

Of course, $36,987 is big money for an FD RX-7. There are currently 36 FD RX-7 models listed on Autotrader with an average asking price of just $24,400. But I've always felt this RX-7 is one of the most beautiful Japanese cars of all time and perhaps the most likely to become a collectible -- and I think someday, at some high-end car show deep in the future, we'll regale our friends with stories about how we could've bought a mint, 19,000-mile RX-7 for just $37,000 way back in 2016.
