BestMotoring got 13.1s in the 1/4 for the GTS, And that equates to a much faster 0-60mph time then 5.5s, In the range of 4.5-4.9s, But i dont use BM as a source for accel times because i dont trust there fishy superfast times that are MUCH faster then everyone else by a huge margin, Seems way off. But take it how you want.
i did not realise how really gutless these cars are just looked at 0-60 MPH stats these are only 7.2 seconds the australian VS holden commodore does that, what a truly pathetic car the MR2 is, all looks and mostly BULLSHIT
owner of a 1991 MR2 Turbo,owned for 13 years,in red with all the toys vgc, attends o lot of classic cars shows,a real head turner,the Japanese Ferrari,300BHP>160MPH what more do you want,2 lady owners in the UK.so not hammered fantastic drive
plz be respectful, those of u that looks down on mr2s. u guys say mr2s run high14s to 15s but i bet u guys got it from google. some may have the jdm sw20 motors and if any of u think the VIN number on some mr2 is sw22 etc.. is it, think again, thats just typical standard numbers for usdm mr2s.
Steve - I have JDM rev4 Mr2 Turbo - it was dynoed at 268hp but with Exhaust, Decat, Induction, Intercooler small bits and stock boost, before service / mods was 228bhp (seems ok 12 hp lost after 70t mils) so stock is 240hp in my opinion. 0-60 in 5.5 seems ok due to grip (mid engine,lsd)
The "new" mr2 in the vid is the 1992 225ps gen II, with the new suspension, brakes, lsd, not the 240hp, fix this fastest laps. And 1/4 mile times are 13.7 for a genII and 13.4 for a GenIII. And around 14.2 for a rev 1 jdm and 14.5/14.7 a rev1 usdm.
Yeah, no way it is 13.2!!! I have a mate who owns one, it's nowhere near low 13's territory. It's comparable to my S2K, making it a high 13 second car at best. The vids I've seen on BM confirm this, a good run yields around a 13.8, fastest run I ever saw was a 13.7!
