Much has been said about Toyota MR2.. The mid-engined coupe, arguably one of the most exciting machines Marche has ever created for the road, was born in the 80’s and ended its life in a calm manner in the 2000’s.But so far, we still see some examples of MR2 running around-most of them Adjusted Incredible numbers.
One of those surviving MR2s is this – the gray 2nd generation W20 apparently built for drag strips (check out their wide drag radials).Introduced in this video That racing channel, It’s owned by someone named Josh and carries something unpretentious behind the seat.
Not to mention Josh’s MR2 Engine swap At the Honda K20 power plant, but not only. Also, above 50 PSI, the output is 1,200 horsepower (895 kW).
As mentioned earlier, this MR2 is made for drag strips. That’s the point of the video above this page. Of course, the goal is to deliberately target the 8-second range and drive 1/4 mile as soon as possible.
The first attempt was already successful, completing a quarter mile in 8.99 seconds. The second attempt is even better, Honda-Powered MR2 that records 8.87 seconds at 176.30 mph (284 km / h). It was also this bid that MR2 made 0 to 60 mph (97 km / h) in just 2.56 seconds. It’s even faster than most supercars out there.
Then again, the final shot was the best run, timing at 8.785 seconds for a quarter mile at a ferocious speed of 180.60 mph (290.6 km / h) on the line. This isn’t the fastest MR2 in the world-I saw a 8.5 second run from a guy named Kyle (video below) -the last speed is the fastest so far from a midship Toyota.
We are feeling a fierce battle between these two.
