 Vehicle Description
In the 1990s, Japans biggest car markets battled it out for technological superiority, and few will argue that the Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR4 wasnt the most advanced machine of its time. With two turbos, all-wheel-drive, 4-wheel-steering, and every piece of electronic wizardry available at the time, it was a technological tour-de-force. It also worked pretty well as a sports car, with eyeball-flattening acceleration and cornering abilities that rivaled fly-paper for grip.

Today, finding one of these that is still fully functional, let alone unmodified and nicely maintained is virtually impossible. This 1996 VR4 breaks the mold, offering a low-mileage original car that has not been raced or abused by a kid on the second-hand market. Theyre also really nice cars to drive, with a great ride/handling balance and reasonable fuel economy. Of course, the white paint helps keep a low profile, and its a refreshing change from all the red and black ones youve been looking at, right? The paint remains excellent, with only a few normal signs of use, but theres no question this car was someones cherished toy and not a street brawler. By 1996, Mitsubishi had toned down the look, so its more integrated, smoother, and less... out there than the earlier models. The headlights were inspired by Samurai war helmets, and the formerly wild spoilers and wings were far more mainstream. And all of it is in excellent shape.

Inside, the VR4s interior is more cockpit than sports car, with deeply sculpted power buckets that do all but grab you to hold you in place during cornering. A full complement of analog gauges keep an eye on vitals, because the engineers finally realized that needles and numbers work better than digital bar graphs. This car represents the best of the best in performance and looks, but youll find the cockpit inspired interior is what really helps set this car off and complete the package. The stereo system lags a bit, carrying a cassette player instead of a CD, but otherwise, it carries almost all the goodies we expect today. The tan leather, the matching carpets, and even the cargo bay remain in excellent condition with only light signs of use.

The 3000GTs big claim to fame was its twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter V6, which cranked out a very impressive 320 horsepower in 1996 (remember the Corvette at that time got a boost to 330 in the form of the heavily revised LT4 small block). Linked to a 6-speed manual and all-wheel-drive, it would scratch and claw its way to insane speeds regardless of the weather and held on like a cat on shag carpet. The engine bay shows few modifications, most notably an air filter, but nothing that would indicate racing or abuse, and certainly nothing that over-stresses this bulletproof powertrain. Four-wheel disc brakes with ABS are confidence-inspiring, and 18-inch chrome alloys with 245/40/18 Dunlops give it a modern look.

Just your average, ordinary daily-driver supercar, with built-in Japanese reliability. These are the Next Big Thing, and this one is definitely a keeper. Call today!
