More than two decades after Mitsubishi introduced its popular Galant FTO in 1971, the Japanese industrial giant revived the illustrious FTO nameplate with an all-new car in late 1994.

While the Galant FTO of the seventies featured an FR configuration, the new FTO, built on the Lancer and Mirage platform, sent all of the engine's power exclusively to its front wheels. This new FTO featured a short overall length, but wide body, so much that it was classified as a Japanese Class 3, quite rare for an FF sports coupe at that time.

Three distinctive engines were available for the FTO, the 4G93, a 1.8-liter SOHC inline-4; the 6A12, a 2.0-liter DOHC V6 and a more powerful version of the 6A12 engine that boasted Mitsubishi's MIVEC variable valve-timing system that pumped out a full 197 HP and 147.5 ft-lb of torque.

In addition to a traditional 5-speed manual gearbox, the car was also available with an innovative 4-speed automatic transmission with an INVECS-II sports driving mode. The FTO's unique and swoopy styling, along with superior driving dynamics and excellent automatic transmission, won over many sports car fans and was named Japan's Car of The Year in 1994.

Production for the FTO ended in 2000 as sports cars lost their allure in the Japan market.

.....You are now a victim of the "Premiumize EVERYTHING" virus, @Tsukishima......:mischievous:

You must escape....Escape now....before it's too late....:lol:
:lol:

And I still have 3 more cars I'd like to receive premium treatment, but right now I don't feel like making the threads for them. You won't be seeing "premium" threads from me anytime soon®.


What are the differences between 1997 and 1999 GP Version R Models in GT6?
The difference is that the 1999 version have 405 PP while the 1997 version have 404 PP. :sly:
 
Good luck insuring a 200hp car as your first ride :D

That might be a bit difficult, but I'll see what I can do with it. Brilliant car.

EDIT: Bad news, the car is right hand drive and I am fairly sure that it isn't legal in the US. Hopefully I can find myself a 2015 MX-5 for a good amount of money...

It is legal, but it's not 25 years old so it can't be imported.

Only limitation for importing for full road use in the U.S is that the car has to be 25 years or older so you would have to wait until 2024 to import it.
