The Toyota MR2 is a sports car full of surprises. While the rest boast of high-tech F1-styled paddle shifters and rally-like sequential manual shifters, the MR2 comes with Toyota’s own automated electrohydraulic manual transmission.

It’s a 5-speed that you shift at the touch of a button or by using the transmission selector mounted at the center console. The buttons are fixed on the steering wheel while the selector doesn’t need the driver to step on the clutch. The shift mechanism is activated through a system that allows the throttle to close and the clutch to disengage. During downshifts, there’s manipulation of power to match transmission and engine speeds for a perfect drive. This is something buyers only get in supercars, such as the $155,000,360 Ferrari Modena F1.

The regular and sporty drives are easy to control. With the throttle fully engaged, the MR2 launches gently with just the right number of revs to allow for tender clutch holding. Along the drive, shifts are slow and deliberate. They, however, become quite tricky during a drag strip as the shifts slow down.

The MR2 gets from 0 to 60 mph in 8.2 seconds. It covers a quarter of a mile in 16.2 seconds. This is 1.4 seconds and 0.6 seconds slower than the previous version. The car is, however, quite fun to drive. It depicts much of what you’d experience in a Ferrari. Drivers can press buttons and brake aggressively for perfect downshifts that align with the engine and wheel speeds when negotiating corners. This is important, especially when driving near the adhesion limit. A slight mistake with the pedal could have you experiencing some wheel lockup at the rear.

The MR2 is practically a highly enjoyable toy. There’s little to no cargo room. The rear-engine Spyder roadster comes with two seats and adds a standard 6-disc CD changer for its final model year. Other features include a leather-wrapped tilt steering wheel, mirrors and windows, anti-lock power brakes, 4-wheel disc, cruise control, air conditioning, power locks, and a manual folding top. Among the options available include leather seats and a carbon-fiber dressing for the dashboard.

The MR2 carries a 1.8-liter 4-cylinder engine that generates 138 horsepower channeled through a 5-speed manual or 6-speed sequential-shift transmission. For the final model year, U.S. buyers get a sports car that offers a lot more for a lot less.
