If you're interested in the new class of Japanese classic cars, then this 2001 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GT should have your attention. It has the features you love like the multi-valve V6, five-speed stick, loaded A/C interior, and cool drop-top style. Plus, this one has the fundamentals right with low mileage and long-term first-owner care.

Crossing the 20-year threshold gets this Mitsubishi into an emerging class of young classics. And so the interest in these is really going to start heating up. That's why you want a car like this that has averaged only about 2,700 miles annually, and in fact, it has been with its original owner up until recently. The factory Saronno Red reflects this level of care and respect. It has a terrific level of gloss and shine, and if you're looking at these Eclipse convertibles, we'll bet this factory finish looks better than even those cars that were recently resprayed to try and hide a multi-owner life. The aggressive profile, flared fenders, long arc rear spoiler, factory body kit, and wind-swept streaks that streaks in the front bumper and continue through the door line - it's all part of the sporty design that makes this GT look awesome. And you can see it all so well on this example because the panels retain that precision fit you love in a Japanese classic.

The black convertible top has a clean and dark presentation that looks good against the red. And it only gets better when you take it down, because you get a full black interior done in supple leather. While you'll love the open-top feeling, it doesn't even look like this convertible was ever left out in the sun. More than just distinctive, this comes loaded with power locks, power mirrors, a cup holder center console, and a premium Infinity AM/FM/CD/cassette stereo. A young classic also means the best in modern safety, like dual front airbags, side airbags, and anti-lock brakes. There are even nice details, like the working courtesy lights and a well-fitting convertible boot. Plus, you have power windows and a power convertible top. That means you can go from enclosed comfort to a wind-in-your-hair experience without leaving your driver's seat. And because the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a, you can comfortably enjoy top-down motoring all through the summer.

The 3.0-liter motor was the optional motor that was standard on a premium GT Spyder like this, and it's especially nice to have the numbers-matching unit on a well-preserved car like this. The 24-valve DOHC V6 is desirable because Mitsubishi are masters at this kind of multi-valve motor. And you get full control over it thanks to the original five-speed manual transmission. The nimble power steering, four-wheel power disc brakes, sport tires on factory 17-inch alloys, and the fully independent suspension are all the reasons why this drop-top is the one you want to drive.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual, warranty info pack, and two keys. This is the well-respected new classic that's clean over every inch - including the undercarriage. It makes for the best way to get a terrific young classic drop-top at a terrific price. Call today!!!
