SOTW: MK2 TOYOTA MR2
Shed spots a leggy-but-lively Mister Two
Go for a slightly later version and you won't get the unruly handling, either. Toyota brought out a 'Revision 2' in 1992 with revised suspension geometry. Find yourself a Rev 3 and you get a few subtle styling tweaks and a dollop of extra power, too, with 180hp in the later versions as opposed to the 155hp in the earlier cars.
There are issues with today's SOTW, mind. The geek in me isn't strong enough to say for sure whether or not this is a UK car (especially without a satisfactory shot of the rear of the car) - though it seems likely - while the advert is painfully short on detail. Especially for a car that has purportedly travelled a pretty whopping 185,000 miles.
But it's got tax and ticket, the vendor says it's just been serviced and has a new set of brake pads. For £895, there's not really much more you can ask of your mid-engined coupe, is there?
