There 's no real point in arguing the fact.

The truth is the MR2 Turbo is quicker then the GT4 in stock form and a lot can be done to both cars to speed up their times.

Both the MR2 owners will defend the MR2 and the GT4 owners will support the GT4....

Now logically...

MR2 and GT4 unless I am mistaken use the 3S-GTE so the same powerplant.

MR2 weighs less than the GT4 so less weight

GT4 has 4WD so therefore reducing total power

If your using the same power plant in two different cars, one weighing less and without 4WD.... Logic rules....

Anybody care to change my logic or shall I just say enough said :P

They are two completely different cars.

4wd gives better launch. 2wd gives better running at speed response and overall top speed.

The gearing is different ruling out most comparisons between engines and the ecus have different maps.

Now we get into the wet weather / dry weather / corners / straight road arguement.

Both nice cars and each to their own.

I like having 4 seats. Simple as that. Oh, and the ***** extensions on my bonnet.

Hmmmm...

What does it matter.. we all love our own cars, and [theoretically] respect everyone elses..

My car is stock, has 154bhp with 0-60 in 9.5 secs...

It will probably take 30 secs to do a 1/4 mile... and you know what... I don't care, cos it's mine, I love it, and don't feel the need to make up fake stats to try and impress people, or argue the merits of 'a toyota in a posh frock'.

It is what it is, the celica is a fast 4WD coupe, the MR2 is a fast 2-seater sports car....

Enjoy them, because one day we'll all be dead!

ive tried to add an attachement and it wont have it so i am pi**ed off now!.

take a look at my mates site www.carsurfer.co.uk, and go to the car stats link on the left hand side, then choose toyota. this site has information from both official (manufacturers) documents, and stats from specialist places like this forum.

on looking at even the very best gt4 it has similar specs to that of the mr2 turbo - rev3 (some may argue over the documented top speed of 153 - compared to that of 150 for the mr2 which we all know is not entirely accurate (we can go faster)!

and with a 0-60 of 5.4 compared to the 5.2 of the mr2 (ignore the 205 and 5.8 mr2, that is U.S spec), then it is clear the mr2 is faster.

NOTE THE ST205 IS NOWHERE NEAR AT 6.1.

add to this the fact that mr2's are sexier, more fun to drive, and u dont have to drive your parents out on a sunday (no room), i think we win!

ah thankyou.

Yes, i think its pointless to compare the 2. Ultimately the mr2 is the faster car, altho not in the wet. The celica is a lot more predictable, safer and has 4 seats. Just asking 'which is faster' is being stupid.

I agree that the mr2 will out do a celica in the dry but have my caution about saying that when it comes to the wet, although the mr2 will always out preform the celica on handeling, and anyone that says thats not true surely has no idea what they are talking about! MR2's have a prefect power to weight ratio....can't really say that about the celica!

but celicas are a nice car and have their strong points so as whats been said above, we should all pull together under our great Badge of quality...and critisice other makes...and not our own! :D

p.s. anyone got some good pics for a aw11 front soplier that i could use to fabricate one from? if u do could u plz email it to lvn_mr2@hotmail...thanks guys..and thank you toyota for great cars :thumbsup:
