2000-2005 Toyota MR2 Spyder
The 2000-2005 Toyota MR2 Spyder marks the third generation if the MR2 nameplate and represents what many enthusiasts consider the last sports car ever produced under the Toyota brand. A sports roadster by every definition of the word, the MR2 Spyder was designed as a fierce competitor to the Miata, besting the Mazda in weight, handling and power. Built from the ground up as a two-seater mid engine convertible with only 1.9 cubic feet of storage space, the MR2 Spyder is meant for one thing: an exhilarating high performance driving experience. You won’t be taking any trips to the grocery store in this roadster. Under the bonnet sits the 1ZZ-FE naturally aspirated 1.8L four cylinder engine handed down from the Celica GT, putting out 138hp to propel only 2195lbs. The 43/57 weight distribution made the Spyder a favorite among racing enthusiasts, rivaled at the time of its release only by the Porsche Boxster, Lotus Esprit and Acura NSX, all well out of the Toyota price point. MR2 Spyder enthusiasts are small in numbers but large in loyalty, incorporating turbo kits and engine swaps as commonplace among the community.
