1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4

My wife's baby. It's not my cup of tea, but she has loved and pampered it since new. Sometimes I think she loves that car more than me, although I can't understand why. I'm much more appealing to the eye.

320 hp @ 6000 rpm Torque : 315 lb-ft @ 2500 rpm / These engines love to rev and perform best over 5000 rpm / Redlines @ 7000 rpm

All Wheel Drive / 6 speed manual ... If you ever have a chance to drive one of these cars, one that's been properly maintained, take it for a spin and hammer down. I think you'll be impressed.

Most of these cars were trashed years ago by boy-racers. There aren't many examples left in this condition.

Thankfully, this car doesn't have that hideous rear wing which didn't arrive until the 1999 model year (see example in video below).

Interior still looks and smells new after 27 years and 60k miles.

It's too bad that Mitsubishi killed production of their 1990's halo car. In many ways, the VR4 was ahead of its time.

You always give a car a THUMBS UP when it has GT in it's name.

Dave, I cannot keep up with all your rides. I still need to come see and drive the GHPCNM Collection.

It seems all rich owners keep their colections in Florida. Except Jay Leno.

Have a Happy New Year..let's pray for a devine miracle in 2022. Rob
