I have always liked these. So amazingly clean and low miles. I wonder what it will sell for.

I wanted to get one for my 11th car but ended up with the mk1 cabrio instead. Illl have to shot for a Sw20 as my 20th car.

These are on my list of cars I want to have at some point, unfortunately they're hard to find (especially around here) with more steel than rust, and clean ones end up on places like bring-a-trailer for way too much money.
A friend's GF had one back when I had my Fiero Formula. My friend drove the car a few times and had nothing but praise for it. I have often wondered if I would have been happier had I bought an MR2 rather than my problematic Fiero.

@onlytwowheels It’ll be interesting to see what the BaT tax is, on these.
Man, I love them wingless.

These are so wedge-tastically awesome. My ‘91 is super fun to drive but the ‘80s ones are supposed to be even more fun.

@onlytwowheels I definitely miss my 2nd AW11, '88 S/C model. Got it in a trade for a crashed Spec E30 (as a result of me not being nearly as good of a racer as I expected). Drove it for awhile, then sold it for $2,000. Even though it had about 175k miles, it was in remarkably good shape. It would probably be worth $7,000 or so in this silly used car market.
The first was an '85 N/A that I never actually got running. Bought and sold for $400 each way. But I try not to dwell on that brief episode of car ownership.

@onlytwowheels I've always really liked the first-gen MR2....very 80's, but not 80's to the point where it looks dated, if that makes sense?
The angular wedge shape has aged very well and nothing overly gimmicky about the interior.
I briefly shopped out an S/C model before I bought my Fiero Formula. At the time, the dealers were marking them, so I
knewthought the Fiero was going to be the best bang for the buck. Hindsight is 20/20.

I'm somewhat biased, but I have always liked the AW11 better than the mk2 or 3. That silver and black car looks very clean and spare. Mine is looking a bit more lumpy these days with lowering, 225-45's and a bit of aero.
I Iooked back at my old C&D's and found that Lyons, Sherman and Jordan thought the design was "...uninspired and uninspiring..." although they like the car otherwise. When the SC came out, the list price as tested was $19,000+ In 1988, that was completely out of my range. I was buying $600 Volkswagens...

There's an'88 for sale near where I live at a used car lot. I started and dream every time I go past it to the nearby bakery for donuts.
$14k asking, it's got the turbo, manual, and only 44k miles.
And it had the spoiler @SamV8, the pic above looked weird, now I know why do

they look so weird without the rear spoiler, I guess it must be a common thing in the states as it's usually only US cars that are spoilerless

@onlytwowheels I love these and all 80s wedges... TR7, Esprit, M1, Stratos. On mobile or I would go fish out pictures.
One of my great automotive regrets is that I didn't buy one of the ones I looked at back in 1990-1991 when it was easy to find excellent to mint condition MR2's for very reasonable amounts of money.
