1988 Toyota MR2 Supercharged Very Rare

1988 Supercharged Toyota MR2. One of less than 2000 imported into the united states in 1988. Road and track still declares this car one of the best sports cars ever made.

Here is an article from the Chicago Sun Times : October 26,2003 The 1985-89 Toyota MR2 sports car was Japan's first mid-engine production auto and had the ingredients to be one of few autos from the 1980s that are classics. The race-style mid-engine design contributed to the MR2's nimble handling. The little two-seat MR2 put serious heat on other affordable two-seaters. It was one of the best sports cars -- regardless of price. Road & Track magazine called the fast $16,418 supercharged 145- horsepower version of the 1988 MR2 one of the world's 10 best cars, along with the $100,000-plus Ferrari Testarossa. The supercharged MR2 hit 60 mph in just 6.8 seconds, but Road & Track also praised the $12,808 nonsupercharged MR2, which had 115 horsepower and reached 60 mph in a respectable 8.5-9 seconds. The supercharged model arrived for 1988, but Car and Driver magazine had picked the nonsupercharged $12,548 MR2 as one of the "Ten Best" 1987 cars, saying it "is the essence of sporting fun: quick, agile and always eager for a fling. It has the soul of a Ferrari factored down to four-cylinder affordability."

Options include : JDM Recaro interior including seats and door panels, 4 point seat belts, New Motor, 5 speed transmission, TRD Clutch, 5 lug hub conversion, Larger front brakes, Nascar rear brakes, Momo steering wheel, Celica GTS pedal comversion, TRD Boost Guage, Celica GTS shift knob, 17" Niche Pultec wheels New 17" tires, New exhaust, New Moldings(most not even available at Toyota anymore), New trim (most not available at Toyota anymore), New Mirrors, New t top seals, Every pice of molding and exterior trim have been replaced.

This is a very clean rust free car. It is an excellent handling road car. Check the reviews for yourself. This is a true example of what a Driving machine should be. Please email me at sw20fj40@yahoo.com or 678-895-8739. Individual Toyota MR2 Enthusiest with title in hand. $6800 obo. Thanks

PS. I fixed your post, it was un-readable. Punctuation and paragraphs are your friend.

Thanks. I hate to sell her but it does not make sense to own with a family of 4. Open to offers. Thanks

The car was most likely sold a long time ago since you bumped a thread more than three years old.

So you bought it from the person that bought it 3+ tears ago? All I can say is that I love my 89 MR2 S/C!

Yeah, I thought that was interesting, not worth the hassle IMO but interesting none the less. Good luck in finding out anything if he's not a TN member anymore.
