With two turbos, all-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, and every piece of electronic wizardry available at the time, the 1996 Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR4 was the perfect Japanese supercar. It combined a technological tour-de-force with eyeball-flattening acceleration and cornering abilities that rivaled fly-paper for grip. So to find a freshly painted stunner that has been respected from day one is always desirable... and this one's affordable price makes it irresistible.

In the 1990s, Japan's biggest car markets battled it out for technological superiority, and few will argue that the Mitsubishi 3000 GT VR4 wasn't the most advanced machine of its time. With a recent investment in a full repaint only about a year old, the factory-correct Solano Black Pearl has a sleek dark appearance like a ninja slipping through the night (so does that make the bright 18-inch factory alloys it throwing stars?) But Japanese warrior comparisons aside, you can instantly tell this coupe is something special. There was reportedly only 71 black VR4 coupes imported in 1996 (out of only 314 total.) That makes it one of the rarest entries into the new class of classic cars, and so it has been treated with the esteem it deserves. The sheetmetal is smooth; all the glass is clear and complete; and even the rear spoiler is immaculate.

Tan leather always looks great against a black exterior, but this one feels exceptionally nice. As a top-of-the-line sports car that wanted to push technology boundaries in the 1990s, it is still quite luxurious as it enters into classic status. This includes power seats, keyless entry, power windows, power locks, sunroof, cruise control, heated seats, ice-cold air conditioning, and a premium Infinity AM/FM/cassette with CD changer and equalizer. But more than just loaded, this is a true sports car with grippy bucket seats, stick shift, and an adjustable driving modes. And no matter if you like old-school muscle machines or state-of-the-art performance, the full set of analogue gauges (with a large tach and speedo in front of the driver) instantly gets your enthusiast heart racing.

The 3000GT's big claim to fame was its twin-turbocharged 3.0 liter V6, which cranked out a very impressive 320 horsepower. In a car so well presented so far, you'll be happy to know this is the 3000 GT's original powerplant. And you get complete control over this high technology engine thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. And while the power could keep up with its contemporaries in a straight line, this special coupe would always surpass them in the corners. All-wheel drive and four-wheel steering made this a rally car for the streets. And this confidence is only reinforced by the four-wheel disc brakes w/ABS, power steering, and Uniroyal Tiger Paw GTZ tires.

Complete with owner's manual packet, maintenance records, and receipts, this is supercar ability with Japanese reliability. So don't miss your rare opportunity at a unique sports machine that never lost its demand. Call now!
