The Mazda RX-7 (FC3S) (also known as Mazda Savanna) is the predecessor to the Mazda RX-7 (FD), as it is the Series 5 (S5) variant of the RX series.
The FC3S Turbo-II is the North American counterpart of the Japan-exclusive Mazda RX-7 GT-X and Mazda RX-7 Infini III, which were the most powerful cars of the FC generation.
Need for Speed: World
The Mazda RX-7 FC was made available in Need for Speed: World on November 20th, 2012 and appears as a D class vehicle.
This car is best described as an average Class B competitor with good handling. Acceleration is comparable to that of the Mazda RX-7 FD and other similarly rated Japanese cars in the game. Its nitrous boost has a moderate strength.
The steering of the FC3S is not as responsive as seen on other Mazda rotary engine powered cars, but is still useful for high-speed cornering because of decent grip. Top speed is 185 mph (298 km/h).

Shift: 2 Unleashed
The Mazda RX-7 (FC) appears in Shift 2: Unleashed as a Retro D vehicle that costs $5,200, making it the second cheapest car in the game. There are also two pre-modified variants of the car:
- The "Team Need for Speed Edition" Mazda RX-7 FC3S can be unlocked after successful completion of the Works Discipline.
- The "Speedhunters Edition" Mazda RX-7 FC3S appears as a Retro B vehicle, which is available in the Speedhunters Pack only. The car goes from 0-60 mph in 5.0 seconds and is capable of reaching 219 mph (352 km/h).
The stock version lacks power which is compensated by great handling. Due to its low price and the capable chassis, the RX-7 responds well to power upgrades.
- Once Works upgraded in Shift 2: Unleashed, it resembles the bodykit of the Team NFS Edition RX-7.
