Toyota's third-generation MR2 roadster is nearing the end of its life -- and Toyota currently has no plans to replace it.
But Toyota is offering the last 300 examples to be built for the UK market as a special edition, the TF300. Each will be built to customer order, with its position in the production run individually stitched into the back of each seat and authenticated by a special certificate, signed by the chairman of Toyota GB, Shimpei Kobayashi.
Buyers keen to get a specific number – 123, 007 or 222 for example – should get in touch with their local Toyota dealer as soon as possible to place a deposit.
The TF300 features custom leather and Alcantara suede-effect upholstery. Silver, black and grey body colours are available with red leather, and red and blue body colours with grey leather interior. It gets twin stainless steel TTE sports exhaust pipes too.
Other features include electric door mirrors and windows, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear knob, retractable soft-top with heated glass rear window, wind deflector, alloy wheels and a Thatcham Category 1 alarm.
Equipped with the mid-mounted, high-revving 138bhp 1.8-litre VVT-i engine, the rear-wheel drive MR2 TF300 accelerates from zero to 62mph in eight seconds and has a top speed of 131mph. Combined cycle fuel consumption is 38.2mpg and carbon dioxide emissions are rated at 178g/km.
The Toyota MR2 TF300 is available to order now, priced £18,015 on the road.
