Toyota MR2/MR-S/Sera/Paseo 1986-2002

When considering an MR2 of any kind, the budget sets itself at $20,000 and the only decision to make is which version to buy. The collectors in the room will head straight for a first-gen AW11 model, especially if it’s a Japanese-spec car with factory supercharger.

Standard, these little gems cost around $20K then add $10,000 for the supercharger. Turbo versions of the later SW20R shape weren’t sold here when new but today cost around the same as GT and Bathurst versions that were. The MR-S is a totally different concept, being a smaller car with fully folding roof and only 103kW.

These should cost less than the SW20 cars but currently offer less to interest collectors. So does the Paseo coupe which at $3500-5000 will serve as low-cost transport without much incentive for preservation.

MR2 AW11 1986-89 $19,050 [3]
