1990 Mitsubishi GTO No Reserve

[ translate ]

Lot details Registration No: WIW 3679 Chassis No: Z16A0000990 MOT: None Only 61,000 recorded miles and just three former keepers 225hp 3-litre DOHC 24v V6 engine Desirable manual transmission example Product of the same JDM 'arms race' that spawned the Honda NSX, Toyota Supra Turbo (A80) and Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo Part of the same Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) arms race that spawned the Honda NSX, Toyota Supra Turbo (A80) and Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo, the Mitsubishi GTO debuted in 1990. Derived from the Mitsubishi HSX concept car that had appeared at the previous year’s Tokyo Motor Show, the newcomer bristled with cutting edge technology much of which is still being employed in today’s supercars including four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, electronically controlled suspension, active aerodynamics and twin turbos. Styled by Masuru Suzuki, the 2+2-seater featured a distinctive ‘Coke bottle’ silhouette and cossetting interior. Eager not to incur Ferrari’s wrath, Mitsubishi marketed its flagship sportscar as the ‘3000 GT’ in Europe. Chassis ‘Z16A0000990’ was supplied new to the Japanese Domestic Market (JDM), before arriving in the United Kingdom in 1998. Fitted with the 3-litre DOHC 24v V6 engine producing 225hp allied to a five-speed manual transmission, the Mitsubishi is finished in Monza Red paintwork with two-tone Grey cloth interior upholstery, and features cruise control, Carrozzerla cassette radio, climate control, and electric windows. Purchased into current ownership in 2014 through auction, at which stage the Mitsubishi was described as in 'good' condition with regard to its engine, gearbox, electrical equipment, bodywork, paintwork and interior trim, it was also reported to have just benefited a recently renewed clutch assembly and had been regularly serviced. Placed into static display in dry storage since purchase by the vendor in 2014, the GTO now does require a thorough recommissioning although starts and proceeds under its own power, although the brakes certainly will require attention. Offered now with 61,000 miles on the odometer and has just three former keepers. Intended purchasers should note that the new owner will need to apply for a V5C document as there is not one present.
