The Toyota MR2 GT-S '97 is a road car produced by Toyota. It appears in all Gran Turismo games to date since Gran Turismo 3: A-Spec. Although initially not available in Gran Turismo Sport, this car was later introduced as part of Update 1.13, released on February 28, 2018.

DescriptionEdit

"The final turbo spec model that gained the chassis stability needed to handle the engine power."


The second-generation MR2, which arrived in 1989, represented the all-new version of the AW11, Japan's first mass produced mid-engine sports car. Toyota wanted to broaden the appeal of its two-seater to the general public, so it made the car larger. To compensate for the added mass, Toyota increased power. The 4A-G, a 1.6-liter inline-4, was swapped in favor of the 3S-G, a 2.0-liter DOHC inline-4, which produced 163 HP in naturally-aspirated form and 222 HP when turbocharged. Unfortunately, with the new engines, the handling characteristics of the AW11 worsened, as the car exhibited a tendency to oversteer. As a result, in December 1991, the chassis was completely revised in the updated SW20 II model.

Things dramatically improved, even more so in 1994 with version III that featured more power via a stronger turbocharger; 242 HP and 224.2 ft-lb of torque. The naturally-aspirated model also saw an increase in performance going to 178 Hp and 141.0 ft-lb of torque. In June 1996, the IV added a helical LSD, as well as standard fare ABS. In December 1997, the V introduced the VVT-i (Variable Valve Timing-intelligent) to the naturally-aspirated engine that was now pumping out 197 HP and 151.8 ft-lb of torque. With all these improvements, the SW20 became one of the most popular sports car of its day, outshining the AW11, the model that started it all.
