2001 Toyota MR2 (W30)

Staggering 1-owner example that's been properly stored showing just 2,150 miles; recommissioned and ready for enjoyment

Supplied new by Toyota of Tykhøjetvej, Give, Denmark to our sole owner on 23rd March 2001 whilst he was working there as a UK spec RHD model the car was registered a month later in the UK on 1st April 2001 and has covered a staggering 2,150 miles from new only.

Professionally stored for many years the car still maintains that ‘new car smell’ and feel, the paint gleams, the tyres shine, the interior is still supple and unmarked with the carpets still covered in their original plastic.

If you wished you could have bought a new W30 series MR2 MkIII in the early Noughties and didn’t, here is your chance to buy what is most likely the lowest mileage, and most ‘as new’ example left in the country.

Finished in Raven black and powered by Toyota’s excellent 1ZZ-FED 16-valve DOHC 1.8 litre four-cylinder engine which develops 138bhp, enough to give it zingy performance in its lightweight 2-seater open top body with simple to operate manual vinyl soft top. Inside, we find a simple and well executed interior with anthracite leather seats, manual ‘box, CD and tape player units and other easy to use instrumentation ensuring the focus is on driving and having fun.

Pulled out of storage and lightly recommissioned in late 2020 and ready for use, the car has been treated to a new battery, oil change and MOT without advisory valid until December 2021 showing only 8 miles covered since this test. Also within the history file is the V5C, a letter from the owner’s daughter confirming the car saw very little use as a result of the owner sadly suffering a stroke, confirmation of the VAT payment on registration in the UK, original International motor insurance card for driving in Denmark when it was new, CoC document, original Danish purchase receipt, SORN notifications, original sales brochures and 2 owner’s packs with warranty booklets, owners-manual and Danish service book.

Corking opportunity to give this cool little sports car some much needed exercise and enjoyment – find another one with 2,150 miles?
