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.

2014 Toyota 4Runner

Fri, 02 Aug 2013 11:57:00 EST

I recently took the redesigned 2014 Toyota 4Runner for a muddy romp in Pennsylvania. While the mechanical bits and pieces beneath the body-on-frame SUV trudge forward into the new model year with very few tweaks, the truck "receives a rugged new exterior design and interior refinements that add comfort and convenience without sacrificing its hallmark performance capability and excellent value," says the automaker.
A quick visual scan of the 4Runner reveals a new front end with a more "aggressive" and "muscular" appearance (yes, I'm quoting Toyota) that includes new headlights, grille and hood scoop. A roof rack is now standard across all trims, too. While SR5 and Trail grades have a bland color-keyed grille insert that gives the face a monochromatic appearance, the range-topping Limited (shown above and in our gallery) snarls with a silver-plated chin that gives it a bit more character.
New soft-touch surfaces within the cabin provide a more upscale environment and a bright new Optitron instrument panel improves readability and functionality. As before, the SR5 and Trail models arrive with fabric upholstery or optional Softex seats (synthetic leather). Genuine hides are reserved for the Limited trim, which is also fitted with Toyota's unique X-REAS (X-Relative Absorber System) automatic suspension system as standard equipment.

Toyota Prius sets a different kind of Nurburgring lap record [w/video]

Tue, 15 Jul 2014 19:01:00 EST

Scroll down the leaderboards of Nürburgring lap times and you'll see mostly racing cars, supercars and sports cars. Delve deep enough and you'll eventually get to hatchbacks and sedans, albeit the most performance-focused of their kind. But a hybrid? Sure, the Porsche 918 Spyder posted the top time for a street-legal series production car, and it's technically a hybrid, but we're talking about another kind of hybrid here. We're talking about a Toyota Prius.
That's right: the Prius just set a lap record around the Nordschleife. But it wasn't for the lap time. In fact, miles per hour barely factored in (except for staying above the minimum 37-mph average speed mandated on the vaunted racing circuit). No, this was about miles per gallon.
Toyota took one of its Prius Plug-In hybrids to the Nürburgring, topped up the battery, put on a set of low-rolling-resistance tires and put automotive journalist Joe Clifford behind the wheel with a mandate to use as little fuel as possible. After one second shy of 21 minutes, the Prius completed its lap having used just five tablespoons of fuel.

eBay Find of the Day: Back To The Future Marty McFly 1985 Toyota SR5 pickup tribute

Mon, 05 Aug 2013 08:31:00 EST

With DeLorean time machine replicas thick on the ground, it was only a matter of time before someone started recreating the other vehicles in the McFly garage. At the end of the first Back to the Future movie, Marty returns to 1985 to find his sweet-looking Toyota SR5 truck all waxed and ready for his date. That truck always did look great in the movie, and now's your chance to own this close facsimile.
This Back to the Future replica Toyota is on eBay with a price of $14,500, which the seller claims is half of what's been invested. Perhaps that's true, but it's still a nearly 30-year-old truck that's covered 280,000 miles. The seller does say the 22RE engine has been recently rebuilt, along with the rest of the drivetrain, and there's new paint, too. The attention to detail is admirable, and if you've always admired Marty's '80s-chic 4x4, now's your chance to own it.
