Third-generation Cosmo, looking far more modern and relevant for the 1980s than its predecessor. Extra four-door bodystyles shared with Luce, though coupé was first shown. Coupé had Cd of 0,32, among the better figures of the period. Turbo 12A rotary from 1982, first time a turbocharger had been added to a rotary engine, and briefly the fastest production car out of Japan. Digital speedometer, in keeping with its high-tech image.
