This description is taken from the NTSC version of Gran Turismo 2:
Nearly every auto maker has subsidiaries that sell high-performance parts. Some of these companies even release their own original, exciting cars based on their parent companies' models. A good example is the MR Spider, released by TRD. The second-generation MR2, dubbed the SW20, first debuted in October 1989. Since then it has undergone many minor changes, becoming an increasingly refined vehicle in the process. December 1992's Model II gave way in October 1994 to the Model III, which in turn evolved into the even sportier Model IV in June 1996. The normal MR2 lineup combined a coupe body with either a regular roof or T-top roof. The MR Spider added the option of exciting open-air motoring to this lineup. Independently created in February, 1996 by TRD, a high-performance parts manufacturer wholly owned by Toyota, the MR Spider was based on the G-grade MR2, which housed the 2-liter DOHC in-line 4-cylinder model 3S-GE engine. TRD replaced this model's roof with an open top to create a vehicle that allows the driver to enjoy both refined MR2 performance and the excitement of open-top driving.
The Toyota MR Spider can occasionally be purchased at the Toyota Used Cars Dealership for around 16,200 Credits.
