This 1993 VR-4 is the last year of the original design. The 1990s was an interesting time in automotive history, particularly with Japanese sports cars. The Nissan 300Z, Toyota Supra, Mazda RX-7, Acura NSX and the Mitsubishi 3000GT all gave reason for buyers to consider the Japanese alternatives to more expensive sports cars from Europe. Each could be had with similar performance statistics, leather interiors, power amenities from seats to windows, outstanding designs, superb drivability and unprecedented levels of comfort. To boot, the Japanese cars offered innate reliability and easy ownership characteristics, making them even more attractive. If that wasn’t enough, there were the attractive price points, usually in the mid-$30,000 range for the top-of-the-line examples, such as this 3000GT VR-4. Presented in Zurich White Pearl with a black interior, the VR-4 was the ultimate offering from Mitsubishi in the early-to-mid 1990s. Introduced in 1991, it rocked the world with 0-60 MPH times in the sub-5-second range, a top speed of about 160 MPH and quarter-mile times in the 13-second ballpark. An engineering marvel, VR-4 features all-wheel-drive, a twin-turbocharged 3.0L 24-valve DOHC V-6 engine, 5-speed transmission and an arsenal of electronic magic never before seen in a sports car of this pricing. These Japanese supercars largely changed the landscape for performance cars in general and created a whole new generation of car enthusiasts. Finding an original, unmodified version of this car with all related records, information and carefully treated by it’s owner is near impossible.
