Today’s Bring a Trailer Discovery

  • The first-generation MR2 is slightly lighter and has a more powerful four-cylinder engine, making it seem like a credible Lotus car.
  • This particular race car is from the second-to-last year they built this model, and hasn’t been driven much.
  • This car is lighter than the supercharged version. It is naturally aspirated, which means it stays true to the original MR2 styling and character elements.

Long-Term Test: 1985 Toyota MR2

The Toyota MR2, a small two-seater car, was introduced in February 1985 to great acclaim. People loved its balanced handling, excellent five-speed gearbox and high-quality engines. It was named one of the “Ten Best Cars” by C/D magazine, with its gearbox and layout praised as the best in the industry. Overall, it got off to a very good start and soon became affectionately known as “Mr Two”.

1988 Toyota MR2: The Supercharged Edition

This 1988 Toyota MR2 is a special edit with a supercharged engine, is painted red and has black leather seats. It has been driven 93,915 miles since it was new. The current owner purchased it from the original owner earlier this year, and it is still in its original condition both inside and out. The supercharged 1.6L engine and 5-speed manual gearbox have been well taken care of, including a recent new timing belt, gaskets, seals, fluids, a new battery and more. There is also a thick maintenance file with over 30 pages of records. The car comes with a clean Carfax report, service records, factory manuals, a car cover, five keys and a clean Virginia title in the current owner’s name.
