Written by Parkers on

It was back-to-basics for the third generation Midship-Runabout two-seater (MR-2). It’s loads of fun, with a lightweight body, free-revving responsive engines and a low-slung driving position. It's a proper little sportscar, but this is strictly a plaything - there’s very little luggage space. With the hood up there's plenty of wind noise, so keep it down unless it's raining hard as the heater's great and buffeting is minimal even at motorway speeds.
