The 3000GT is an unbelievable car. I upgraded it to 380 hp! It still gives me shivers when I look at it or switch the ignition! It has a great design, but its kind of hard to fit in - I'm 6'2" . This is still its a great car and the best birthday gift I've ever gotten
If you're looking for a great twin turbo car that already has 320 hp, and isn't jacked up in prices like the Supras and RX-7's, this is your car. It will take an RX-7, Supra, and Z28's off of the line, hands down. Non-believer? A Supra and an RX-7 are faster at a track in the 1/4 mile, but AWD rules the street. There are only a few in the 10's, but honestly, are you going to mod your car to run 10's and throw $15,000 into it, me neither. Looks, speed, reliability, this has it all. Only thing I can complain about is Mitsubishi's service and some of the odd quirks that the car has, nothing big though.
the 3000GT has been around pretty long
but the'99 model is cool (except for the
crappy spoiler)if mitsubishi could just
redesign the car with a better engine
plus a lower price ,it would be better
off.Mine has good performance but still
needs more juice(for all you tune dudes
out there please tune all your3000GT's
cause theycan be damn slow
A great alternative to buying a Subaru WRX STI or Mitsubishi Lancer Evo at a fraction of the price, if you can find one. Handles great! The off the line performance is peaky, once the turbo kicks in over 2,200 rpm.
The 1999 3000GT VR4 is with out a doubt the most fun vehicle I have driven. I have driven Challengers, Mustangs, Camaros, and even Corvettes.
The twin turbos, coax your right foot to the floor. It reminds me of a 2 stroke dirt bike power band.
I am a privileged to own such an incredibly engineered machine.
