1993 Toyota SW20 MR2 GT-S
We just got in what has to be one of the coolest SW20 MR2’s we’ve had to date. This 1993 has a ton of quality aftermarket parts all while retaining a stock look. With only 60K miles it’s been well preserved over the years. The body has been kept in great shape with only a few minor door dings to be found. The Astral Black (202) paint has a great luster that really shows well. The paint does have some routine blemishes for it’s age, but no notable concerns. The exterior has quite a few subtle goodies that nearly look factory at first glance. The front lip is a nice carbon fiber piece. Due to the low ground clearance it does have some scuffs and a crack but are only really noticeable when you’re right up on it. To match the carbon lip a rare set of power, carbon fiber, Ganador side mirrors. To keep with the subtle upgrades, out back the tail lights have been upgraded to the newer revision 5 lights as are the corner markers. While keeping the factory look it gives the back end a totally different feel. The cherry on top is the Kaminari rear spoiler which has a similar style to the factory one, just beefed up a bit.
The interior follows the same theme with a lot of quality upgrades. To keep better tabs on vitals several Apexi gauges have been added. The A pillar gauge pod has a boost and oil pressure in clear sight. Atop the steering column is an Apexi rev/speed meter. Next to your left leg is an Apexi EL System Meter Control Unit for the A pillar gauges. Lastly on top of the dash is a SAFCII for more complete control of everything. Next to it is a really clever radar system, however we do not know how functional it is in the US. Physical controls come compliments of a Lonza Black Racing steering wheel and Momo shift knob. To keep the driver in place an exceptionally clean Recaro keeps the driver in place for the spirited driving this car was built for. Of course it still has all the modern power accessories to make day to day driving more enjoyable. Power windows, automatic climate control, cold A/C, and even the Ganador's are powered. The overall interior has been exceptionally well maintained over the years with no notable rips, tears, stains, etc. to report.
Mechanically this car has been well kept up, and with the mileage this low it should come at no surprise. The timing belt was just replaced 3K miles ago which is always a good sign. This one comes fitted with all of the basic bolt on's that everyone generally looks to do. The HKS air intake is very pronounced in the cabin which makes it hard to keep your foot out of it. Out back the dual HKS Super Drager exhaust looks right at home peering through the rear valence. The Splitfire plug wires appear to have been recently replaced. To get it sitting right a set of Tein adjustable coilovers were added, and since stock wheels never make the cut Rays Volk Racing Group A Evolution 2's pick up the slack. Cusco front and rear strut tower bars help to fortify the suspension. The SW20 is already a notoriously capable chassis, coupled with all of the quality aftermarket parts this car really is the full package.
