"Toyota MR2 GTS Turbo Ferrari performance !"

Toyota MR2 GTS Turbo 1995 a pocket rocket!
Japanese Import only and cheap to buy,the GTS turbo is a real flying machine,makes the standard MR2 UK car feel like its diesel powered.Mine was a 1995 model with 17" white Enkei alloys,black leather interior,wow,wow what a machine.It had the largest exhaust I have ever see on a car,Japanese Dragar racing I think.It was race tuned so Ferrari fast,no joke,it was a scarey little roller skate of a car.
I bought it in the late 90s when it was just a few years old and had a little over 12,000 miles on the clock so was still very new then.The ride was terrible,very very stiff/hard,ok as a second car as mine was for weekends but thats all.Very cramped inside,hardly any space for luggage etc but who cares! Servicing was slightly problematic,my local Toyota dealer was impressed but had never seen one before,diagnostics were a problem and when the aircon stopped working they discovered it was totally different from UK spec.It was Japanese "Jungle spec" used to working in hot humid climate so more heavy duty,probably much better than a UK system.They took a little longer to sort it out,but they did,and general servcing was not a problem,nothing new under the bonnet appart from the Turbo and exhaust which was stainless steel,a last forever job!
Build quality was excellent,performance terrific but at the end of the day it was just a souped up Toyota and not that exotic.Loads of fun,GTS never came as a T bar,mid engined of course and the engine cover has raised vents unlike standard non turbos.It sounded amazing,turbo whistling,exhaust roar,impressed the girls no end!
Insurance will be expensive on any special import like this so shop around,there are specialist insurers.
Find a good one,lots of cheap rubbish for sale now so take great care,pay more for a well cared for example,FSH a must,a dog could cost a fortune to fix and if your brave enough go for the GTS Turbo!

Thanks for reading my review and I hope you found it interesting.If this has been useful to you and you take time to leave Your rating it will be appreciated and hope you will take a look at my other reviews sometime.I also leave reviews on the DooYoo website about this and other items,many thanks!
