The 2000-2005 MR2 Spyder is on the verge of classic/antique in many states, and with that, we're seeing renewed interest in this fantastic (and fantastically slow) roadster, which is inarguably the best handling generation of Toyota's mid-engine fever dream, if not the fastest. Horses in the back and incredibly light (2195 pounds dry), you'll have a great time holding high RPMs through winding back roads and tearing down the highway until you blow your pre-cats through the EGR and end it all.
The following are all recent low mileage examples.
First up is this modified 2001. Inside you'll find a built turbo 1ZZ and gauges affixed to every flat surface. This car is a Super Street era masterpiece: you'll even find nitrous in the frunk. The owner claims 400 horsepower. Includes an OEM hardtop and installed TRD bodykit. Located in Illinois, this MR2 Spyder has 45,000 miles on the body and around 10,000 on the rebuild. Listed at $15,000.
Completely stock, here is a fine 2000 Solar Yellow with 74,500 miles, priced at $10,995 in Avon Lake, OH. There's a tear in the passenger seat and more in the top, and you may love or hate the factory wing and its double 3rd brake light appearance. I think it's pretty rad.
Here's one you missed, listed only three days ago: a 2003 Spyder with only 38,500 original miles, with an asking price of $11,500 in Paris, Texas. Remove the pinstripe and send this one to Bring A Trailer.
The seller wants you to know that yes, this 2002 MR2 Spyder is a stick, and it is stock. Only 16,000 original miles, asking $16,500. Located in Columbia, Maryland.
Another missed opportunity: 92,000 miles on the body, 60k on the engine: this 2ZZ swapped 2000 MR2 Spyder could be a deal, if you can overlook the salvage title. Sold for $7500.
