I came across this article this morning by David Booth:

www.thenational.ae/lifestyle/motoring/un...pan-are-overshadowed

"And what of Toyota's first-generation MR2, which was (especially in supercharged guise) my favourite car of the mid- to late-1980s. It was the perfect sports car: small, incredibly agile and the mid-mounted, 145hp, 1.6L supercharged four was effervescent, if not overwhelmingly powerful. Later versions were rounder, sleeker and more powerful, but those first MR2s were as close to Italian-like sports car purity as Toyota has ever ventured. "

It's a good read and nice to know that there are others like us that appreciate that you get a whole lot of car for not much money with an MR2.

If you're suffering from lag, you're either in the wrong gear or the wrong car!

Nice find.

I have to agee with his findings. When i bought my first car, a Fiat x1/9 when i was in the UK in the late 80's i really drooled over the mk1 MR2. It looked great, saying that i did gave a lot of fun in the fiat and since then have a soft spot for sporty motors.
