It’s a predecessor to the Evo and has a clutch which the word ‘temperamental’ doesn’t even begin to describe.
But it purrs like a pussy cat and this particular 1991 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX goes hell-for-leather in a straight line — with 450 Wheel HP from its turbocharged 4G63 engine.
This is a car that is full of the 90s spirit, and includes some of the most epically hilarious seatbelts in history – the kind of ‘futuristic’ (for the 90s) thing you’d only ever get in a Japanese car.
Aside from those, though, this is an awesome car. Watch as Matt Farah from TheSmokingTire takes it out for a drive around Escondido, CA.
