Toyota MR2 Hybrid

Shown in Toyko Autoshow 2010, the Toyota MR2 hybrid built in collaboration with Toyota and Gazoo Racing will show off its performance at the 2011 24-hour endurance race in Nürburgring in Germany.

Based off the original MR2 spyder, this one is retrofitted with a 3.5 litre V6 engine and electric motors in the front and rear, making it an all wheel drive hybrid. Sporting a 245-295 horsepower engine, this hybrid only weighs less than 3300 pounds. Despite the original MR2 interior, the exterior has been completely remodeled. In my opinion it now sports an exotic car look. Any body kit designers care to make one for the standard MR2?
