MR2-based SPR2 takes shape

Very privileged to get a sneak peek at the new SPR2 from Blackwell Sports Cars, which is rapidly reaching fruition.

The Essex-based manufacturer, run by the human dynamo that is Wayne Blackwell, are reporting decent interest in their existing SPR1 body conversion kit (based on Mazda MX-5) lately and have teamed up recently with a new GRP manufacturer and can now offer a slightly revised kit package to allow for the recent trend of fitting MX-6 V6 engines to the SPR1.

They can now offer a revised bonnet with twin air-scoops to allow the bigger engine to gulp in more air, while there’s also a new chin spoiler at the front with a matching rear diffuser.

SPR1 is the company’s first model

The SPR1 offers amazing value for money. You can potentially build one from around £6000, for goodness sake.

Meanwhile, a garage near Chelmsford is hosting the build of the new SPR2, which is based on Toyota MR2 donor. We’ll be bringing you more details on this very exciting newcomer over the coming months.
