Toyota MR2 details the full start-to-finish history of Toyota's bestselling mid-engined sports car, from 1984 until 2007, when production ended. This new book covers all three generations of models: the first-generation AW11 - Car of the Year Japan, 1984-1985; second-generation SW20, with a new 2, 0 litre 3S-GTE engine and the third-generation ZZW30/MR2 Roadster. With detailed specification guides, archive photos and beautiful new photography, this book is a must for every MR2 owner and sports car enthusiast. Covers the background to the MR2 - the 1973 oil crisis and Akio Yoshida's designs; suspension improvements to the Mk II, significantly improving handling; the MR2 in motorsport; special editions and Zagato's VM180. This complete history of Toyota MR2 includes detailed specifications guides and is beautifully illustrated with 260 colour and 36 black a white archive photographs.Anyway, the 4AGE was so impressive that, until Pontiac got its act together with the Fiero V6, there was nothing to touch the MR2 in its class. Turbocharging was also examined but early 1980s turbo technology still left much to be desired.
