Default Pics : Mitsubishi GTO / 3000GT / Stealths in India

Mitsubishi 3000 GTO SR: A Japanese sports car on par with Supra's, NSX's, RX's, this one is a mild 3000 GTO. Its a base model without a twin-turbo. Still without a turbo the V6 3000cc engine produces around 220 bhp. Plus its got 4WD too. This car was spotted in Santacruz. Also spotted 3 more GTO's ... white (Bandra), Red (Santacruz), mustard yellow with pop-ups(Santacruz)

The Mitsubishi 3000GT series has always been a favorite of mine. All wheel drive, twin turbos and very very clean lines (The four exhausts on some models look amazing!!). Its amazing how well-priced these cars were during their time, and reviewers were always amazed at how Mitsubishi provided so much technology for prices a little higher than V6 Accords.

Good find V12...

I see a similar black mitsubishi at my work place but it says FTO on the rear. It is in black and is used to chauffer an actress from yesteryears whose started working in movies again. funnily she has a chauffer who drives her to the sets daily.

Default Pics: Red Mitsubishi 3000 GTO

Spotted this car in Bandra. The car was in top condition with no flaws that I could see. The rear had no logos on it except for the Mitsubishi logo. Too bad I couldn't get to hear it. I don't know what model this is coz I guess the GTO is available in three different models.

And yes its the same car in my avatar. I'll be posting that wallpaper for you guys in Shan2nu's topic "Post your personal Wallpapers here (Post your personal Wallpapers here.)"

This car had a manual transmission. It also has 4WD, 4WS (4-wheel Steering), 4IS (4-wheel Independent Suspension), 4ABS (4-wheel Anti-lock Brake System) and ECS (Electronic Control Suspension). It has a V6, 3000 DOHC, 24-valve, twin-turbocharged, intercooler engine which generates an astounding 280ps/6000rpm .
