Lexus V6 Powered 1991 Mr2 Fully Restored on 2040-cars

Year:1991 Mileage:86000

Cleveland, Ohio, United States

Cleveland, Ohio, United States

This is a 1991 Toyota MR2 with a Six Cylinder Engine. Mechanically and visually restored. Mid-Engined, Rear wheel drive.

The car has an estimated 75-100 TEST MILES ONLY SINCE BUILD COMPLETION. This car is Light and Fast. 

Runs perfectly and pulls like a freight train.  Handles the Corners like it's on Rails.

Practically everything is new on this Vehicle.

The car started life as a four cylinder, rust free, clear title example. We have done five of these builds and have a website. The MR2 was never offered from the factory with a V6 Engine. This is a common transplant/update for power and performance. The torque of the V6 makes this car easy to drive and very quick. They will be shocked as you stomp on the pedal and pull away from most other cars. Awesome balance and handling that rivals European cars. The UK plate is not included. 

This car has a 3.0L V6 Engine from a Lexus ES300 donor vehicle. The engine has 86,000 miles on it and for these engines- this is nothing. They run into the 300's.

The engine was fully serviced while on the stand with NEW: plugs, wires, injectors, water pump, timing belt, fully re-gasketed and detailed engine, all filters, belts & hoses replaced.

The Vehicle has Brand New subtle and tasteful body modifications with a Base / Clear urethane high gloss black paint job. Properly and professionally installed, de badged and painted. New lights everywhere, Blue Halos that have a strobe effect as well as standard bright white. Perfectly aligned Flip up Headlights, tail lights, an upgraded center panel- All New. New Seats, Sound System, Steering wheel and fresh Dark Window Tint, for that "Murdered out" look.

The Car has a one of a kind CLEAR ENGINE COVER modeled after the Ferrari 360 Modena. It's made of 12mm Crystal Clear Lexan. The car will also come with a factory engine cover from a Turbo car. I had one freshly painted at the same time as the car, so the new buyer could hide his giant V6, although I have no idea why you'd want to.

Also one of a kind- There are no others like them in the entire world, the carbon fiber engine cover that came from a Ferrari replica builder in Ireland and the "only one like it" Custom Rear Strut Brace.

The Vehicle has a NEW Custom Clutch assembly capable of holding 600 HP. It's just in case you want to Turbo this car. This clutch will hold it.

All four corners have brand new, 2014 17" ENKEI KOJIN rims, 2014 Federal 595 EVO speed rated tires, drilled and slotted rotors & ceramic low dust disc brakes.

The car has brand new TEIN Lowering springs in the front, The rears are stock, but included with the car are the rear TEIN Lowering springs in case you want to slam it. We like the back end a touch higher, old school guys.

The car has a Brand New Upsized Three Core Radiator, TWO 12" electric fans and a new fan sensor, to keep the car cool. It was 95 here recently and during the test travels- it remained a perfect running temperature.

The car has a custom MAGNAFLOW exhaust system that when you're hard on the throttle, it sounds like no other. Not like the large "fart cans" the kids use- this sounds classy, mean and exotic.

The car has a New Sony Touch Screen sound system and it easily accepts any USB device. Four New speakers, not a "booming" sound system, but nice. It has a back up camera also included. A brand new iPod Shuffle is also included with the car, in case you want to leave your tunes in the car. These are fun little touches that we had built into the car.

The complete interior is either replaced, restored or reconditioned. It's a nice place to be. It's clean and modernized.

You could fly here and drive this car back across the country if you wanted to. This is one of five cars we have restored like this and this is the best one yet.

Cash Offers Accepted. Serious buyers only- email me your phone number and I will call you personally. This is one mean little car.

Watch Congress sample Toyota's i-Road 3-wheeler concept

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 12:45:00 EST

Toyota brought its new i-Road, a three-wheeled, all-electric low-speed vehicle that debuted in 2013 at the Geneva Motor Show, to the Capitol for some of our elected officials to test out. As easy as it is to forget that politicians are people, too, it was refreshing to see a human side to many of them as they zipped about one of the Capitol's many meeting rooms.
We'd say their reactions were surprisingly positive. Of course, some were just down there because Toyota is a big presence in their respective districts, but the bulk of the senators and representatives seemed like they just wanted to zip about the makeshift indoor course on the leaning trike.
Take a look below at the video from Bloomberg.

Minivan market not what it used to be, but margins make up for it

Thu, 05 Jun 2014 08:34:00 EST

Residual values for last year's minivans are higher than they were in 2000.
Much like the station wagon was the shuttle of Baby Boomer generation, the minivan has been the primary means of transport for Generations X and Y. Just as the boomers abandoned the Country Squire, though, those kids that were toted around in Grand Caravans and Windstars are adults, and they certainly don't want to be seen in the cars their parents drove.

Toyota Camry, Honda Civic inventories mounting as US automakers make inroads

Thu, 11 Jul 2013 09:30:00 EST

Two of the hottest-selling cars in America aren't quite as hot as they used to be. The Toyota Camry and Honda Civic are both seeing dealer supplies increase in the face of renewed competition from the much-improved Detroit Three.
According to a report from The Detroit News, the Camry's dealer inventory is 15 days higher than its seasonal average, while the Civic is 25 days above average. Things aren't expected to get better for Toyota and Honda, as RBC Capital Markets analyst Joseph Spak marked the two Japanese offerings as "at risk for reduced output."
The Detroit Three, meanwhile, are seeing supplies dwindle as demand increases, especially for the Ford Fusion, which has seen an 18-percent increase in 2013 sales, and the Chevrolet Cruze, which was second only to the Camry in June 2013 sales.
