Toyota manufactured the Mitsubishi GTO as a sports car with 2 doors, a front-engine and front-wheel system. Its production began in 1990 and ended in 1999 with 2 generations. In Japanese market, the car was named as the GTO while in global market it was known as Mitsubishi 3000GT and in North America it was called Dodge Stealth.
The Mitsubishi GTO was designed as the Mitsubishi flagship car for the whole of the 1990s. Therefore, the car had a very beautiful design. It featured a nicely rounded front, a plunging, long bonnet, inset headlight cluster with a separate indicator light on the side, a small grille and a large air dam. It also had smooth lines that led to a typical small GT boot with a spoiler located on top. The big alloy wheels and the shaped bulging side panels allowing for the side fins add a luxurious finish to the look.
Mitsubishi GTO: Exterior
Besides the stylish look, Toyota also gave to the GTO many high-tech equipments, making it an excellent car in performance tests. The second generation Mitsubishi GTO, manufactured in 1994, received some modifications like round and small projector fog lights; projector beam headlights; revised side air vents and rear bumpers,....
Economic issues within Japan at the time resulted in an intermission of many of the earlier accessories in an effort to keep the car's price down. In 1995, Mitsubishi decided to stop exporting the 3000GT but car dealers still had the chance to import the Mitsubishi GTO from Japan directly. In 1997, a major facelift was introduced in a favour of a light makeover instead. Sales had slowed somewhat worldwide. Mitsubishi just changed the wind and bumpers, doing much the same 2 years later in 1999 when the GTO’s bumper was once redesigned again, along with new sail panel, indicators and new style headlights.
Compared to other cars made in the 1990s, the standard kits list of the GTOs was quite impressive. The cars came with alloy wheels, powered windows, air-con, cruise control, a cassette player and driver’s airbag. The options packages included rear defroster, automatic gearbox, leather upholstery, AM/FM radio, or an upgraded Infinity sound system.
Mitsubishi GTO: Interior
The later models offered front passenger airbags as standard and a CD player as optional.
But keep in mind that the car is very limited in terms of headroom. So if you are a high driver, you can easily hit up against the ceiling.
Engine And Performance
The first generation Mitsubishi GTO was equipped with 3.0L, 24V DOHC V6 engines, making 210 kW power and 407 Nm of torque. These engine had the ability to speed up from 0 to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds. The fuel consumption of the GTO is 18 litres per 100 km, which was quite acceptable in the 1990s, when fuel consumption and green issues were not high a priority as today.
Mitsubishi GTO: Engine.
The GTO was hooked up to either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic gearbox. In 1994, the new Getrag manual 6-speed gearboxes were available as optional.
The Mitsubishi GTO is appreciated as a car with good performance. When driving in busy roads, it performs so well at low revs and you can easily crawl it around every corner. But this is not all about its performance. Its pace on highway is extremely decent that is far better than what you can expect. It corners well, handles great, and gives great feedback through the steering wheel to the driver. The technology beneath the car and under the bonnet are what make the Mitsubishi GTO fun to drive, and each car came with electronic control suspension, active aerodynamics and four-wheel drive.
