The Toyota MR2 Mark 1 is an iconic, unique vehicle in automotive history. The affordable Ferrari, the MR2 was a technology marvel and years ahead of its time. No car looks like an MR2 Mark 1, drives like an MR2 and consequently it has an dedicated following of enthusiasts. An estimate 5,700 vehicles remain and are in desperate need of vital spare parts that are no longer available from dealers or 3rd party vendors.

We would like Toyota to demonstrate some love forToyota MR2 Mark 1 enthusiasts by selective manufacture of critical components which will allow us to keep our vehicles on the road, looking good and turning heads.

Hardly a day goes by without someone asking about my car, complimenting me on the car or offering to buy it off me. But time is taking its toll. Trim and mechanical parts are drying up fast. Everything from windshields to c-pillar trim, to mechanical components are becoming harder to source (or in some cases impossible).

Some 35 years after its original manufacture, the MR2 Mark 1 remains an unintended "halo" car for Toyota - demonstrating Toyota can build a truly exciting, daily drive, for the general public.

We are aware Toyota is looking to help out 2000GT owners. However the MR2 Mark 1 is the car most people will see on the roads. Its unique Katana lines and curb appeal makes Toyota look good, and its handling and engine sound are loved by its owners. There is simply no car on the road today that can compare.
