The original mid-engined two-seater MR2 (it stood for Midship Runabout Two-Seater) was an unexpected offering from Toyota - a manufacturer previously noted for its practical but very conventional family cars. It certainly caused quite a stir when it burst onto the market in 1984 - from its 'origami' styling to its Lotus designed and honed suspension, the newcomer was a welcome breath of fresh air. Going through a redesign in 1989 with the new car being larger than its predecessor due to having a more luxurious and spacious cabin, larger engine sizes, sturdier transaxle, and a more durable suspension setup. The overall design of the second-generation car received more rounded, streamlined styling but the philosophy of lightness complemented by a gutsy 2.0-litre straight-four engine remained the philosophy and the main key to its continued success.

A desirable UK-supplied example, a right-hand-drive example, ‘M757 AAF’ was manufactured in 1994 and supplied new via Toyota agents of the time, C. D. Bramall of Plymouth, being registered new on the 1st of August that year. Finished in the attractive colour combination of Sunburst Red metallic paintwork with Black interior upholstery, the Toyota is fitted with the 1998cc straight-four engine allied to the five-speed manual transmission. In ‘T-top’ guise, the MR2 has been in current registered ownership since 2016 and has had just four former keepers, covering a modest 93,650 miles from new at the time of consignment. Benefitting from a replacement timing belt, water pump, thermostat, and alternator in the last 5,000 miles, the MR2 is accompanied for sale by a history file that contains a large collection of previous invoices, a small selection of past MOTs, current V5C document, and the original book pack comprising the owner’s manual, sales literature, dealer and distributors guide, and stamped service book which illustrates nineteen stamps.
