For sale is a wrecked stage rally car. 2001 MR2 with clean title. Raced in 6 events - last was Plenty of Tarmac in Kentucky 2020. NASA logbook, lots of spares (including complete engine, BC coilovers, control arms, etc.), 6 gravel wheels/tires, 7 street wheels/tires. Hotbits double adjustable rally coilovers, full underbody protection, 2zz engine, 6 speed manual, OEM hardtop, ABS intact. No AC, aftermarket heat and defrost setup. Borla muffler - no fart can sound and has a good noise level balance with comm system. Won Sandblast 2wd first time out, recently 2nd 2wd at Raven Rock RallySprint. Only DNF besides the big off was breaking a stock axle. Has since been replaced with "500hp" units.

Needs front passenger suspension/coilover, headlights, radiator, hardtop glass, taillights, and just about every body panel repaired or replaced (hood - light damage, trunk and doors are fine). Besides the mechanical repairs, just needs new 5/6 point belts and fire extinguisher to be gravel or tarmac rally ready. Has Sparco seats (non halo) and intercom. Still cranks right up. 170k miles on shell, some rust, not a perfect car but what a blast to drive. Currently has widebody kit, but I have all the stock panels to replace if desired. Would recommend for people under 6'0"/200lbs. Can include suit/helmet/HANS.

You can check out my build thread under Owner Photos --> Rally mr-s for more pics. I would repair it myself, but I have a lot less free time lately and I'm ready for something different.

Asking $6500, located near Atlanta, GA.

So sorry, such is the life of a rally car. I’ve written off two, rx7 and 914. My last and best one is in a garage not having run for 15 years. At least yours went out on stage. GLWS!

Really sorry this happened, Hope you are okay. I was wondering if you would consider selling some parts by itself? specifically seats and muffler. ( I am located in Atlanta, so no shipping needed)

Do you have any more pictures for the car that shows the damaged areas? Is it too much to fix or are you just moving on?

Yes, everyone is okay, safety gear did its job well. Currently trying to sell as a package, but will most likely be parting out in the coming months, and I will start a new thread if I do part out - you are on the list though for the items requested.

Currently the car is sitting in the trailer. I can grab some more damage pics tomorrow. I would definitely rebuild, just very limited free time in my new situation and ready for something different. So a lack of time and motivation to bring it back to life.

It is heartbreaking to put up for sale. I have been contemplating what to do for months and finally reached this conclusion. I'll put you on the list if I do part out.

Thanks. Possibly interested in the whole car, etc.

I bet. Just glad you guys are okay. Hopefully someone will put the Spyder (or the parts) to good use after.
