Toyota MR2 Insurance

Toyota MR2The Toyota MR2 has been one of the most popular 2 seat sports cars to ever be produced and was made with 3 distinct versions between 1984 and 2007. Whilst also sold in the UK market, a large number were imported from Japan (especially the MK I and MK II versions) which were in a particularly good condition and often with some kind of modification. All models can be easily be covered with our Toyota insurance.

Toyota MR2 MK 1

Not many of the original versions (1984-1989) exist today, but this car with its lively 1600cc engine set the tone for so many other sportscars. About 125bhp and handling apparently influenced by Lotus enabled the car to have a solid feel on the road. This proved very popular with the buying public. If you have an excellent example of the MK I version then we may be able to cover it using our classic Japanese insurance scheme. A supercharger was added to some of the later models although this only added about 20bhp to the overall power figures.

Toyota MR2 MK 2

In 1989 the MK II shape was introduced and stayed in production for 10 years. A large number of these still exist today, many in the hands of enthusiasts, and we are keen to cover these. With its new body styling the MK2 had engines producing 160bhp, and 220bhp in turbocharged form when supplied in Japan. This was the largest market for the car and due to their usually excellent condition, many were imported to the UK as grey imports. By 1993 the engine was up to 245bhp which certainly made the car a handful. To this day we look for a certain amount of driving experience when using our Toyota insurance schemes. As with many MR2s, these cars can be modified and we are more than happy to look into this for you.

Toyota MR2 MK 3

Again the third generation car was a big departure from the model before it in terms of looks but proved to be a large success as before. The new car was a proper convertible rather than a removable panel coupe and appealed very much to the younger driver market. Probably inspired by the Porsche Boxster, the MR2 Roadster was a car that was reliable, quick, handled well, looked great, and importantly to the target market, didn’t drop like a stone in residual values. Although down on power (140bhp) its weight of under 1 tonne made it a spritely performer with a sub 7 second 0-62 time. Described as having near perfect handling, these cars are still popular today and we would love to quote you for Toyota insurance.

The third generation car was sold extensively in the UK, but the first and second generation models were widely imported. We are very well known when it comes to Japanese Import car insurance.

Although the car may be standard it is highly likely that it will be modified and we are very happy to cover this. In fact our policies take this into account and we treat many changes as standard. Please call us to speak to a fellow enthusiast.
