Car’s like this don’t come along often and Hofmann’s are delighted to be able to offer for sale this incredible 1988 AW11 Toyota MR2. First supplied by Clockhouse Toyota in London on 18th August 1988 and having had only 7 custodians in its life, this little MR2 has covered a total of 100,532 miles and is accompanied by one of the most comprehensive history files we’ve ever seen, which is comprised of mostly Toyota servicing, Toyota workshop manuals along with all MOT’s starting in 1991 and a detailed photo album of the thorough, full restoration this beautiful car underwent which began at the end of 2011/early 2012 and ended with a perfect example of the AW11 in June of 2013. Since then the car has done little except present at shows and be enjoyed sparingly on sunny dry days only, meaning it looks as fresh now as it did when completed and really does need to be seen to be fully appreciated.
Toyota introduced the first-generation MR2 in 1984, designating it the model code “W10”. When fitted with the 1.5-liter 3A engine, it was known as the “AW10”. Likewise, the 1.6-liter 4A version is identified by the “AW11” code.
The MR2’s suspension and handling were designed by Toyota with the help of Lotus engineer Roger Becker. Toyota’s cooperation with Lotus during the prototype phase can be seen in the AW11, and it owes much to Lotus’s sports cars of the 1960s and 1970s.
As with all our vehicles here at Hofmann’s prior to delivery the car will go through a comprehensive pre sales inspection by one of our Toyota trained technicians
