Vehicle Description

1998 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4 Twin-Turbo All-wheel drive and four-wheel steering 3.0L DOHC, 24-valve twin-turbo V-6 engine with twin intercoolers and dual exhaust Getrag six-speed manual transmission Solano Black (code 08) exterior with rear wing spoiler Tan leather interior Air-conditioning, sunroof, power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power windows, power front seats, remote hatch and fuel filler openers Safety equipment includes dual front airbags and anti-lock brakes Original windshield, chrome wheels and new tires This Japanese 2+2 coupe was ahead of its time when it came out during the 1990s. This example, built in September 1997, represents the top-line model, complete with all-wheel drive and twin turbos. Finished in Solano Black (code 08), the car?s paint and trim are in overall very good order, the bodywork is straight and the engine bay is extremely tidy. The body-colored bumpers fit tightly to the rest of the car. The car retains its original windshield and its rear cargo area, with cargo cover, is also in very good order. This car rolls on newer Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06 radials, size 245/40ZR18 at every corner. Each tire is mounted to an original chrome, five-spoke wheel. The wheels and tires are all in very good order. Under the hood is a 3.0L DOHC, 24-valve twin-turbo V-6 engine with twin intercoolers and dual exhaust. The turbocharged variant had the lowest compression ratio at 8.0:1, with each bank of the V-6 having its own independent turbocharger and intercooler. Turbochargers were built by Mitsubishi. The engine is backed by a Getrag six-speed manual transmission. Driver convenience features include air-conditioning, sunroof, power windows, power rack-and-pinion steering, power four-wheel disc brakes, power windows, power front seats, remote hatch and fuel filler openers. AWD power is sent to the wheels through a system composed of a center VCU (Viscous Coupling Unit) differential sending torque to the front and rear limited-slip differentials. Under ideal conditions, the system sends 45 percent of available power to the front and 55 percent to the rear, However, 95 percent can be sent to either axle deepening on the circumstances. The four-wheel steering (4WS) system was designed to show off Mitsubishi?s engineering abilities and was claimed to improve high speed stability. Mitsubishi?s system could turn the rear wheels up to 1.5 degrees in the same directions as the front wheels when travelling at 30 miles per hour or more. The car?s tan leather interior contrasts greatly with the paint. The front buckets are in great shape, as are the rear demi-buckets. The headliner looks great and the black, four-spoke steering wheel contrasts with the tan. The dashboard is in excellent order while the inner door panels look good. The center console and shift lever help round out the inside, along with the factory AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.
