MR2 Revision 4 GT-S Turbo T-Bar - Previously Newera Supplied.
Blue Metallic (6K9)
This MR2 was originally supplied by Newera at the beginning of 1996 to a UK customer. Since then, it's been rarely used - mostly for fun and has therefore done very little mileage since. As our customer now has a young family and therefore no need for this car, it's up for sale at considerably less than 3 years ago - representing an excellent opportunity for someone who wants a rare spec. genuine Rev 4 MR2 T-Bar turbo in rare metallic blue (Possibly the most sought after colour of all).
In 1994 Toyota introduced the Revision 3 turbo model in Japan. Fitted with a more version of their 3S GT-E turbo engine giving 245 bhp as standard, other revisions also brought uprated suspension for greater grip and safety at high speeds, uprated interior trim, as well as newer larger sized wheels, plus of course new fresh colours. With these changes the MR2 became a better car - which is still in strong demand by enthusiasts both in Japan and UK, etc. The Revision 4 model was introduced at the very end of 1996. In addition to the Revision 3 modifications, it received ABS as standard, Dual SRS Airbags, clear front indicators and side repeaters fitted on the side of each front wing. Glass was also changed to a more modern green tinted type (Previous models had glass in brown-grey colour). More new colours were introduced too.
With this example, what you see is a very rare combination, especially because of the Blue-Purple Metallic exterior very rare T-bar! - To find a Revision 4 with this spec. is usually next to impossible.
Standard specification includes: Climate Control A/C, PAS, P/W, Light green tint on the windows, remote controlled door mirrors, original floor mats. Fitted is a high powered (47W x 4) Addzest hifi with CD/Radio. The T-Bar roof also includes interior covers and original bags, so the glass can safely be stored behind the seats. The spare and original tool kit are complete and unused.
Mild Modifications: This MR2 has received some mild performance upgrades: The ECU remains standard, although a Trust Profec B II boost controller has been fitted - and this is currently set to 1 Bar. In the engine bay, there's some heat shielding that's been added to the inlet piping to help keep inlet temperatures down. There's a Trust Airinx induction kit fitted, complete with cold air ducting fed from the n/s side vent and alloy shrouds in the engine bay to keep heat away. An alloy oil catch tank is fitted to trap any oil from the crank-case and so maintain maximum spark-plug / combustion efficiency. A set of uprated ignition leads are also fitted. Radiator cap (1.3 bar) is by TRD. The exhaust is a high flow single exit system complete with removable baffle. Note that an HPI engine brace is also fitted. This stops the engine from rocking when power is applied, thus stabilising the drivetrain and keeping the gear change mechanism from twisting under power. With the exhaust, intake and boost controller modificatons, this MR2 is making around 300 bhp. Please note - if desired, we are able to supply other performance parts specific to this MR2 model. Please see for more details.
Handling, Braking Wheels: Suspension on this example consists of standard shock absorbers with uprated 25mm lowered springs. Cusco alloy strut braces are fitted to both front and rear. At the front, Cusco tension rods have replaced originals and come complete with alloy pillow-ball bushes. Uprated track rod ends roll centre adjusters are also fitted. These combined - help improve steering feel and confidence in the front end of the car. Please note that these are not noisy in use, as they're not parts that move at high frequency such as suspension arms. Wheels are AVS Model 6 forged 16" items fitted with good condition sports tyres of size 205/45/ZR16 front 225/45/ZR16 rear.
The original auction grade of this was was 4 (Original auction sheet is shown in pictures). Please note there is a mild (repaired) dent on the underside of the exhaust pipe and also a light wiper scratch on the windscreen. These cannot be repaired, but are minor and hardly noticable. The front lip is evidently scratched as pictures show (The low price of the car reflects this). Whilst in our customer's posession the timing belt, tensioners and associated bearings have been replaced - also all new fan belts. 2 Wheel bearings have been changed during his tenure and tyres are all relatively new. An appointment to view is strongly recommended.
