2003 Toyota MR2 SpyderOne AZ Owner, 13k Miles, 5-Speed
This is an exceptionally clean and original 2003 Toyota MR2 Spyder that has been enjoyed a mere 13,000 miles by one owner in Cave Creek, AZ since new. Having been garaged in a conditioned garage since new, this is now in almost showroom condition in every respect. This two seater even has a few welcome options from the factory including air conditioning and the 5-speed manual transmission, creating a nice package that will be hard to find elsewhere in this condition.
The sporty appearance of this MR2 is undoubtedly aided by it’s Absolutely Red factory paint color and black manual folding convertible top. The new looking black top retracts and settles in place in moments. The paint is in excellent condition, with great depth and clarity. There are two minor flaws of note, with a tiny chip on the passenger side door and a indentation on the front fascia near the passenger side fog lamp. Otherwise, this MR2 is in showroom condition.
The black interior matches the top and pulls together the sporty aesthetic of the car perfectly. Despite the overall short length of the car, the seats and seating position will accommodate drivers well over six feet tall. In fact, the owner is 6’3″ tall and has a 997 Porsche 911 and remarks that it has an almost identical seating position. The leather seats are sporty in appearance, with no noticeable flaw. One will also notice the optional MR2 Spyder branded floor mats, and the carbon fiber applique on some of the components in the center stack. As with the rest of the car, the interior looks as well preserved as the exterior.
Mechanically, this is exactly what you would expect from a manufacturer known for reliability. The 1.8 liter transverse twin cam, 16 valve four-cylinder engine provides enough forward momentum to hum down the road. The 5-speed short throw shifter engages quickly in and out of the gates and allows for spirited driving for the enthusiast. The confidence inspiring Lotus designed suspension and steering will have the owner wanting to head to the canyons for a little fun. Regular service intervals, as few as they have been over it’s 13,000 mile lifespan, have allowed this car to drive like new and should offer the next owner many years of fun behind the wheel. All service records, including a warranty replaced battery in 2019 and new Yokohama tires purchased in 2018, are provided with the car. Also provided are the actual window sticker, sales brochures, and manuals. A perfectly clean one-owner CARFAX report has been added to this listing with a detailed and documented service history.
