For Sale: 1997 Mitsubishi 3000 in West Babylon, New York


Vehicle Description

The Mitsubishi GTO is a front-engine, all-wheel/front-wheel drive 2+2 hatchback sports coupe and Grand Touring car manufactured and marketed by Japanese automobile manufacturer Mitsubishi for 1990-1999 model years, across a single generation with one facelift. Manufactured in Nagoya, Japan, the four passenger coupes were marketed in the Japanese domestic market (JDM) as the GTO and globally as Mitsubishi 3000GT. The Dodge Stealth - a badge engineered, mechanically identical captive import - was sold for model years 1991-1996 along with the 1991-1999 Mitsubishi 3000GT in North America. As a collaborative effort between Chrysler and Mitsubishi Motors, Chrysler was responsible for the Stealth's exterior styling.
First generation models were internally designated Z16A and incorporated full-time four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, active aerodynamics with automatically adjusting front and rear spoilers, sport/tour exhaust modes and electronically controlled suspension (ECS).11 #fn11 The GTO, 3000GT and Stealth featured pop-up headlights and articulated blister caps on the hood to accommodate the ECS controllers at the top of the strut turrets. The Dodge Stealth featured a signature cross-hair front bumper fascia and crescent-shaped rear spoiler - and did not include active aerodynamics. In 1993 the engine went to a 4 bolt main and a forged crankshaft. In the U.S., both the 1990 to 1993 Dodge Stealth R/T Turbo and Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 received the transversely mounted 24V V6 paired with a long ratio 5-speed manual.

Magazines from the era praised its brutal acceleration and AWD grip but disliked its Active Aero and other 'special' gadgets, saying they were useless and added weight to an already heavy platform. By 1993 all electronic gadgets were still standard on the VR-4 model, with magazines quoting 0-60 mph (97 km/h) acceleration times ranging from sub 5 seconds12 #fn12 to 6.3 seconds and quarter mile times of 13.6-13.9 seconds at 95-98 mph (153-158 km/h)13 #fn1314 #fn14 Only US 3000GT models could be configured with front-wheel drive rather than all-wheel drive. In Japan, the base GTO SR included all-wheel drive; no front-wheel drive version was offered. The GTO SR had similar power output figures as the US spec 3000GT SL and was offered with the same five-speed manual or four-speed automatic transmissions. Japanese buyers did not receive the SOHC V6 which was standard on the base model US only Dodge Stealth and US spec 3000GT. Japanese buyers had the choice of either a naturally aspirated DOHC V6 and twin-turbocharged DOHC V6.
