I'd take the R8, guy I know has 2 first gens as he couldn't decide on white or black so bought both and still has them in his collection

I bought my mk3 MR2 2 years ago and I've loved every minute 😍 What a fun car to drive, honestly get people on the street saying 'Nice car!' as they pass which I don't like to say as it sounds obnoxious 😅
ALph4 Pirms 6 dienām
Classic R8 is the best R8. I don't understand why they abandoned that look. They should make a ''Classic edition'' with updated specs but the same look at Gen 1. I bet that would sell like hotcakes.

Better than an MX-5? Have a quiet word with yourself, Alex.

Christoph27 Pirms 10 dienām
Got very luck to get an MR-S as my second ever car. I originally wanted a MK2 because I loved the looks but from all the research I've done the SW20 is a bit of a turd stock, I wanted an ultimate cornering machine and the ZZW30 is just that. Snatched one off in Germany for 3k with a hardtop before they rose in price after last winter. The looks already grew on me too.
Jack Pirms 10 dienām
Think I’d rather pay the £80k for that second hand r8 than that corvette!

The R8 is looking at the the C8 and thinking, i’m passing the ‘poor mans’ supercar baton to you mate. Nothing screams I can’t afford a proper supercar louder than the C8.
d1strappazon Pirms 11 dienām
There's no way in hell you can get that R8 for 35 grand. Especially in the US. It's more like 70-80 grand

Lots of people put a 190bhp 2ZZ engine in the MR2 makes them a lot more fun, i’ve even seen some honda engines in them (220bhp)
Nebula Pirms 11 dienām
That MR2 is sooo ugly, what did Toyota think, the previous gen was so sick looking.
James Wallace
James Wallace Pirms 11 dienām
R8 is the best car there without a shadow of a doubt. Nobody wants a big American built car in the uk they just don’t work. Except the mustang which comes in right hand drive

Problem is all the MR2s on Autotrader are shit boxes , that have done over 100 thousand miles and people have the cheek to charge £3 grand for them lol , MX5 would be a better buy but again Rust problems lol

I will never sell my mr2. Given me twelve years of smiles. Even with my amateurly installed mods the thing has not had a single major problem. All my money goes into upgrades instead of repairs.

Can we just have the gen2 turbo MR2 please?
_Mtthw_ Pirms 12 dienām
Good friends with someone who has a first gen R8 and it’s amazing, such a mind blowing car it’s a shame you don’t see many but up in Scotland there’s quite common!

3rd gen MR2 = affordable fun 1st gen R8 = similarly fun with better engine sound and more creature comforts C8 Stingray = insane fun and the most expensive of the 3 due to being the only new model yet still relatively cheap compared to most mid-engine cars of the era.

"Every budget" What can I get for 10 Dollars?
eurosonly Pirms 12 dienām
So after having viewed some listings for the same generation of mr2 I am not actually able to afford it. Even the cheapest one. Gonna have to call click bait title on this one.

Rather have the R8..... Stingray C8 is a nice car , but i am curious how the materials and interior hold op in about 10 years from now.... until then , i have the r8 thx...... And that MR2 is just plain ugly and in the days it was way overpriced new for a half celica/half corolla without a roof.... better compared a Honda S2000 against these....

I still daily drive my 2005 mr2 spyder. It has 106k miles. Have modded it, love the damn thing but it is slow once you get off the line.

@Alec Karfonta you got that right! 🤣 I spent more on my bike (honda) than the bike itself.

Props to the filming and editing teams. definitely stealing some moves from you guys. That aside, Iove my MR-S and I'm so glad it will be back on the road soon!

In all honesty the Mr2 is the only cool car there. If you saw someone in the Stingray or Audi you would immediately think : knob!
HeadPopBodyDrop Pirms 13 dienām
Still pissed how cheap you got that mr2 I'd pay double, and then some!
99Lezard99 Pirms 13 dienām
Thing with the R8 v8 is, they mostly dont even make 400hp....so that civic type r will be a real enemy with a tune on it. 😅 Also Honda build a car with that recipy like 15 years before the R8. And the NSX was barely slower then the R8 V8 btw. 👀
