Default Pics: Mitsubishi FTO Spotted

was heading to oscar collection (irla) around 4:30pm. after crossing D.N. Nagar police station, a yellow car which was parked next the "The Club's" entrance got my attention. i could barely see it in the traffic. but when i came close, i was glad that it was a Mitsubishi FTO. the car was in superb condition with a yellow paintjob. my uncle had a grey fto a year ago before he sold it, but this was surely not the same one & looked much better in its strong yellow color. i took a u-turn, parked my car the opposite lane & my phone cam was ready to go~




i actually waited for 10-15 minutes so i could catch up with the owner & hear the baby, but he never showed up. the FTO is the RHD version of the mitsubishi eclipse which is 2nd in my dreamcar list. (1.supra/2.eclipse/3.rx-8)

Nice pics dude and nice phone cam there. Bharat Dabholkar has an FTO of a similar colour I think. I wonder if its the same one. He had souped it up from what I have heard

Nice pics gamer. Didnt know that something called FTO exists. Can you put up some more info on this?

BTW what phone cam is it? you got 1280*960 pixels resolution on a phone cam? is it the 7610?

thanks dippy & harrie. Sony Ericsson S700i. its the best cam-phone out yet (1.3 mp with 262k colors). my dad uses 7610 (1mp/65k colors). wait for samsung 500 (5mp/?colors)

coming back to the topic, the Mitsubishi Eclipse sells as the FTO in the UK market (RHD). it basically has the same specifications as the eclipse.
