MR2 reincarnated as Prius coupé?

March 21, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Looking to go green with a hybrid automobile but want some performance without breaking the bank. Well your dream car might be the Toyota MR2 Hybrid assuming it ever really happens. The rumored revived  MR2 which stopped Production in 2007 would be a coupé instead of roadster built around the Prius design, but would go 0-60 in under 7 seconds. With rear-wheel-drive setup and a paddleshift gearbox.

Speculation is the engine would be similar to the FT-HS’s 3.5-liter, V6 Hybrized Toyota trotted out a few of years ago. A Toyota executive said the company would work to achieve a low price point which is speculated at around £20,000 (about US$24,400) for the MR2. Photos are AutoExpress artist’s impressions.
