DragStar F1 Dragon is a Lesson in what not to do to a Toyota MR-2

Unless you take a peek at the interior, there's no way you'll be able to recognize the Toyota MR-2 hiding under the exaggerated Ferrari Testarossa-style strakes of this Japanese creation (or is that abomination?). Crafted by Value Progress, the Dragstar F1 Dragon is built on a third generation Toyota MR-2 and despite the extra-long nose, it keeps the donor car's mid-engine layout intact.

Aside from the shocking styling, nothing else has been done to the car which continues to be powered by the MR-2's standard 1.8-liter four-pot churning out 140HP. Scroll through our high-res gallery below to see the Dragstar F1 Dragon for yourself.
