Toyota MR2/MR-S/Sera/Paseo 1986-2002 from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

Toyota’s early MR2 has a reputation for tricky handling but that heightens its appeal to some buyers. Australian-delivered examples of the AW11 model cost $15,000, with supercharged imports scarce and normally more expensive.

All-new SW20 versions sold in Australia with non-turbo engines and most now cost less than $10,000. Turbo versions with a 163kW motor can be found here at around $18,000 but cars in Japan are becoming harder to buy.

| 1987-1990 Toyota MR2 review

Post-1994 Bathurst and GT versions that sold new here will go close to matching Turbo money. The third-Generation MR-S Spyder has less power than an SW20 and comes only as a soft-top.

Paseo coupes are vanishing fast and good cars sell at under $3000.
