For its swan song, Toyota has added leather seat & door trim, a three-spoke sports steering wheel and a new instrument panel with metal highlights. The shift-gauge cover is also finished in a titanium color. Other features include a unique set of wheels, new aero parts including side intakes and revised bumpers, plus a Helical LSD. We first head of the demise of the MR-2 and Celica back in 2004, with the US model MR-2 being discontinued in 2005 because of increasing competition and a lack of sales. Elsewhere, the 2006 model year is the last for the MR2, with the UK getting 300 final models in a special numbered TF300 series.
Toyota is now left without a genuine sports car in its lineup to exploit the promotions from its multi-million dollar F1 program. However, the company is rumored to be working on the next generation Supra coupe as well as a new low priced sports model.
