1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4When Mitsubishi shuffled through names for it's do everything GT, the Starion moniker was shelved and the name Illusion was seriously considered. Which at first glance appeared to be an ideal name for a car with Eclipse and Mirage as siblings but Mitsubishi took a closer look and decided not to risk calling its new sports car a word that Webster defines as " a false idea or conception". Well, Mitsubishi had no need to worry the 3000gt VR4 as it is now iconically called in not an illusion, its a real car. A Dream car ive spent my whole life dreaming of driving and now. I gift this legend to you.
Mitsubishi debuted its Gorgeous 2nd generation super car in 1994 (1 of only 2 years any 3000gt featured Glass Headlights).
So what can you say about a Factory street car that feels really comfortable next to the rail at the top of the high bank at over 160 MPH. "WOW"? Simply phenomenalexecutinghigh speed Handling and so stabile it feels like a racecar.
This All weather Hot Rod features a 3.0 Liter 24 valve duel overhead cam DOHC V6 that spins Twin Turbskies through twin intercoolers boosting you to as fast as your balls will take you.
RARE.... rarity is an understatement for this super car thats why it has the VICIOUS Gripping all-wheel driving system to keep you planted to the ground so well that Lamborghini decided to install it in the 95-98 Diablo VT Roadster.
But wait there's more. We can't simply forget about the greatest part of the whole entire platform that was specifically catered too making sure was still fully functioning to get your rocks off. The AWS, 4WS, Parallel Steering, All wheel steering what ever you choose to call it, is the most joyous part of this gripping gorilla. At speeds above 30 MPH the independent rear suspension hydraulically adjusts the toe link control to steer the rear wheels in the same direction as the front wheels thereby improving the response of the suspension so well it feels like your riding on rails. Giving you all the ingredients necessary to inspire confidence at three times the rest of the worlds 55 Mph plodding pace. With all these technological marvels jam packed into the most affordable exotic car your can buy for less then 30k its no wonder Mitsubishi was considering calling it "The Illusion".
I bought this dream car of mine with the intention of doing a full Reliomax Restoration so I replaced nearly every common ware out / Preventive maintenance item I could think of and since I was building this for maximum reliability I chose this particular VR4 due to the fact that it has over 200k miles on it because of a documentary on the heritage of BMW's F1 racing history. It detailed how BMW chose to only use an engine which had over 100 kilometers on it due to the fact that any manufacturing casting defects would of already blown the engine apart. There by ensuring their engine build was going to last for a while. Below is a list of the 90% completed restoration installed parts list. The car is fully functioning, runs and drives wonderfully with over 800 miles driven since majority of rebuild / parts have been installed. No strange noises, No overheating, No boost leaks. The few steps left to complete restoration are to fix a slow leak coming from the rear main seal. Upgrade Clutch and light weight flywheel while your in there, hood n fenders have few minor dents near windshield where a tree branch fell and caused minor hail size damage and cracked the windshield. Then paint or wrap your dream color to have it be as one of a kind as you.
Car is currently Painted red all chrome blue wrap removed, With hologram chrome headlights and chrome rims show in pictures. Also does not have catalytic converter installed because I love the sounds of the turbos spooling, but does come with car and its historic so it don't have to pass emissions which is the only reason cats are on vehicles.
