The Mitsubishi 3000GT, also know as the Mitsubishi GTO, was
a technically advanced sports coupe designed to compete with
the Nissan 300ZX, Mazda
RX-7 and Toyota Supra.
The first generation of Mitsubishi 3000 GT's incorporated many
of Mitsubishi's contemporary performance-enhancing technologies,
including; full time all wheel drive, four wheel steering, active
featuring automatically-adjusting front and rear spoilers, a
tuneable exhaust and electronically controlled suspension (ECS).
Unfortunately this vast array of technology also added weight
and took away much of the drivers involvement.
Second generation Mitsubishi 3000GT's are distinguished by a
redesigned front bumper incorporating projector beam headlights
and small, round projector fog lights. Larger wheel and tire
combinations were also offered, and the side air vents and rear
bumpers were modified. The interior was also revised and fitted
with dual air bags. The engines in all second generation 3000GT
models received a slight boost in torque. The 3000GT VR4 was
also offered with a six-speed Getrag manual transmission. Many
of the technologies on the car were also discontinued. The tunable
exhaust was phased out in 1994, the electronic suspension and
disappeared in 1996.
The Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR4 was a high performance version of
the car which featured a twin turbo V6 engine and 4WD. The second
generation 3000GT VR4 developed 320 hp @ 6,000 rpm and 315 lb/ft
(427 Nm) of torque @ 2,500 rpm.
