If I had the money, the sky turbo would definitely be on the top of my list for a car that I'd purchase.
I'd think that the MR2 could probably outhandle a sky in the corners but the sky would pull away on the straights. The cars seem pretty equal and I'd love to see a comparison between the two. But you have to remember that the MR2 is a decade behind in technology.
I'd love to see these two-seater sportcars go at it. Although I know that the sky turbo would win as an end result, I still would like to see how my car stacks up against a 10 year newer car with all the bells and whistles.
I just sold my 1993 non-turbo MR2, when I got my SKY.
Hate to say it, but I think the MR2 does handle curves and turns better.
Something about those big wide rear tires makes it really stick to the road.
SKY steering seems to me more touchy and you get more oversteer.
