2002 Toyota Mr2 Spyder Convertible * Immaculate For A Collector * on 2040-cars
Woodland Hills, California, United States
Im an NOT entertaining ANY offers below $15,000 . This 2002 Toyota MR2 Spyder has 22,750 original and genuine low impact miles. All from one owner (until another collector bought it who only put 45 miles on it). I have all the DMV registration papers showing the same owner until 2013 and all the few limited TOYOTA services from new, proving the miles. I bought this plus another MR2 as collectable but should really only keep one of them. You cant find a car like this very often so its very rare. Its been babied all its life. Most you'll see have 85,000 to 180,000 miles and are pretty rough as you'd expect. This car should last you for years and appreciate. 100% stock Toyota parts so easy to replace if you do need to. The shine on the original paint remains incredible like new. When I bought it recently, I had the limited minor scuffs on the rims 100% fixed ($330), registered it with CA DMV ($560), smogged, 4 Yokohama tires just to have newer tires than the originals they came with, had TOYOTA of Northridge check EVERYTHING and I spent over $400 on a tiny hidden leak that you would not have even seem as its covered with a pan as I believe a collectable should be perfect. Had the drive floor mat hooks replaced. See photo on the Toyota rack! I have all the paperwork. I had a K&N air filter installed and synthetic oil although it did not need an oil change but I'm kind of anal about that kind of thing. The top and interiors are absolutely perfect, almost no scuffs or marks, it really is factory (+ 1 year) condition, what you'd expect from a car that is perhaps 1 year old and carefully driven. Such a stunning car, people constantly ask me about it, or ask me at traffic lights what car it is! You will need to arrange pick up. Payment by bank wire only within 1 business day of the offer / acceptance. Great for a fun car, 2nd car, for a partner or kid or just drive occasionally and watch it appreciate. Its to reliable you could have it as an everyday car. Ive put about 500 miles on it to make sure it runs well... plus its so fun. You cant go wrong with a Toyota. If I don't sell, I'll keep it as a collectable... You really cant price a car in this condition. Its worth what you think its worth, like a '65 mustang.... on paper its not worth much. To someone who wants it.......... much more.... I am still driving it a little as its so much fun and its very sunny here in Los Angeles! A couple of tiny stone chips on hood (typical) that are hardly noticed with exact paint color touch up. I have set this up so you can make an offer of at least $15,000, or more. You can still "buy now". It is of course sold "as-is".
** I'll throw in the car cover I have for this. ** ** I see some of you have tried to bid lower.... please read this paragraph!

Toyota has undeniably carved out a niche for itself as the industry's leader in hybrid propulsion. What started out with the original Prius in 1997 has, over the past sixteen years, ballooned to what Toyota reports as a global hybrid portfolio of 23 models. But few (if any of them) are particularly exciting.

That's where the Yaris Hybrid-R concept comes in. Set to be showcased along with the rest of Toyota's hybrid and fuel-cell lineup at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show next month, the concept starts with one of the Japanese auto giant's least exciting models and upgrades it to more enticing territory. Toyota Motorsport GmbH - the same Cologne, Germany-based division that operated the company's F1 team, currently runs its Le Mans program and gave us that bonkers 650-horsepower Lexus LS - has slotted in a version of Toyota's new 1.6-liter Global Race Engine and paired it with a couple of electric motors for hybrid propulsion and through-the-road all-wheel drive.
Like the TS030 Hybrid LMP1, the Yaris Hybrid-R concept uses a super capacitor (instead of a conventional battery) to store the regenerated brake energy and give it upwards of 400 horsepower. That's about all Toyota is revealing at this point, but this is the first time it has confirmed the project is based on a Yaris, of all things, and the confirmation comes with the solitary teaser rendering you see above. Check out the press release after the jump and watch this space for more as Frankfurt fast approaches.
Toyota is now one step closer to putting its unintended acceleration woes behind it as it has received approval from the US District Court for the Central District of California to settle loss-of-value claims to vehicles associated with the 2009-2010 recalls.

As we reported back in May, the Toyota settlement is worth $1.63 billion, which, according to Bloomberg, includes a payout of $757 million to affected owners, $227 million to attorneys and an additional $875 million for vehicle upgrades. (We did the math, too, and that totals $1.859 billion, but there is no justification for the discrepancy. Fuzzy math, eh?)
Based on the estimated 22.6 million vehicles said to be included in this suit, that would make the average payment about $33.49 per vehicle, but the article says that owners, lessees and even renters will receive varying amounts ranging from $9.74 up to as much as $10,000. This settlement does not affect suits filed for personal injury or wrongful death.
While we were busy ogling the Scion FR-S Release Series 1.0 with its Yuzu yellow paint and a workover by Toyota Racing Development, and the Japanese Toyota 86 buyers were trying out their Playstation-compatible Sports Drive Logger telemetry system, the European 2015 Toyota GT86 got fitted with some new parts of its own. New on next year's model are stiffer mounts for the front suspension and rear shock absorbers, and new shocks in the back for better damping and less friction. Toyota says the result is sharper steering and less body roll.
Inside, the instrument panel and center console get decorated with a "carbon-fiber motif." There are new shades of pearl white and silver to dress up the outside, and the roof gets a shark-fin antenna for sharper looks and aero. It goes on sale this summer, and you can read everything we just told you in the press release below. We've reached out to Scion to see if we'll get the same upgrades on the FR-S this summer, too, company PR rep Nancy Hubbell telling us, "The European changes are among those being considered for the US model FR-S and we'll have final confirmation soon."
