Manic MR2

The Toyota MR2 is a line of two-seat, mid-enginedrear-wheel-drive sports cars manufactured in Japan and marketed globally by Toyota from 1984 to 2007 over three generations: W10 (1984–1989), W20 (1990–1999) and W30 (2000–2007). It is Japan’s first rear mid-engined production car.

Conceived as a small, economical and sporty car, the MR2 employed straightforward design elements, including fully independent MacPherson strut front and rear suspensions, four-wheel disc brakes, and a transverse-mounted inline-four engine.

The name MR2 stands for either “mid-ship run-about 2-seater”[1] or “mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive, 2-seater”.[2] In French-speaking markets, the vehicle was renamed Toyota MR because the abbreviation “MR2” sounds like a profanity when spoken in French.[3]
