For Sale: 1988 Toyota MR2 in Lutz, Florida


Vehicle Description

It's going to be hard to find a more desirable car from the new class of imported classics than this 1988 Toyota MR2. Not only is this a desirable supercharged version, but it's also coming off of nearly a quarter-century of long-term care. That means investments in the slick paint, loaded A/C interior, and even a recent engine rebuild.

The first generation MR2 was something almost unexpected from Toyota. It was a radical leap forward where they gave us something that looked like it came from Europe (Lotus was rumored to be heavily involved) in a reliable Japanese package. That's why we know the demand is only going to grow as these continue to age into full classic status. So we are really excited about this one. It's a two-owner Florida car that has been with the last owner since 1997. Not only does that mean better care, but you can also tell it has been given some terrific investments. All of this is best seen in the paint. This was given a recent professional respray for an excellent silver and black two-tone. And that red pinstripe dividing it just looks awesome. Plus, when the body has been treated with this level of care, it allows this glossy finish to highlight the crisp lines of this coupe. The low-slung front end with hidden headlights, full factory ground effects body kit, and the big rear spoiler are all crisply defined to declare this a sleek sports car.

The interior is loaded, fresh, and darkly stylish. So while the odometer may reflect the car's full actual mileage, the exceptional condition will make you swear Ronald Reagan is still in the White House. This comes loaded with the best features, like cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. This is built to be a driver's car with well-bolstered high-back bucket seats, a sports steering wheel on a tilt column, and a full gauge package with large speed and tach. Plus, T-tops are the perfect way to show the world the smile on your face as you enjoy this driver's machine to the fullest.

Power comes from Toyota's fuel-injected 1.6-liter DOHC motor. It's the ideal compact side to fit in this mid-engine layout. Toyota also discovered that a supercharger could fit in there, too. That really made this a lively powerhouse, and you are in complete control thanks to the five-speed manual transmission. And part of the exceptional care and maintenance on this MR2 includes a motor rebuild in 2019. So it has a confident feeling out on the road. The mid-engine layout gives it a terrific center of gravity, and the razor-sharp handling will make you believe the Lotus connection. The sport-tuned independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes are all part of what makes this such a desirable driver's machine.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual title documentation, maintenance records, and nice extras, like storage bags for the T-tops. This is the Japanese sports car that has the style, care, and all-around fun you've been looking for. So you know you can't let this MR2 slip away. Call today!!!
