Finished in menacing Jet Black and sitting on shadow chrome alloy wheels, this rare Mitsubishi GTO MR Twin Turbo must be one of the finest, most original and lowest mileage GTOs in existence.
The GTO MR was originally launched in 1994 with the MR moniker standing for ‘Mitsubishi Racing’ and was only available in the Japanese market.
The GTO MR was essentially a lightweight GTO Twin Turbo that deleted 4WS and Active Aero but was mechanically identical to the normal GTO Twin Turbo, with the awd system splitting to power 45% front 55% rear. To identify a genuine MR the chassis number must start with Z15A.
The Twin Turbo GTO is powered by a silky smooth DOHC 24v V6 which produces producing a not inconsiderable 276bhp and 308ft lbs of torque mated to a slick shifting 6 speed transmission.
Recently imported by us, and orignally registered in 1998, our GTO has only covered 34,000 miles (54,000 km), from new and looks almost factory fresh with unmarked panels and deep lustrous paintwork, whilst the stock alloy wheels are unmarked.
Whilst it might be a bit of a cliché, this GTO really does present in fantastic all-round condition with the interior being a particular delight being unmarked and still smelling like a new car.
Accompanying the car is one of the most comprehensive service histories that we have encountered with services being carried out at the following intervals. 1694km, 2303km, 5075km, 5825km, 8187km, 11875km, 19028km, 25971km, 31357km, 45608km, 50995km, 52242km & 53790km. We also have the orignal hand and service books together with the spare keys.
Despite the MR being the lightweight version, this Mitsubishi comes very well specified with a tilt / slide sunroof, climate control, electric bolster adjustment for the figure hugging seats and electric folding mirrors.
We are confident that upon inspection this GTO will satisfy the most discerning of buyers and welcome prospective customers to fully inspect the car in our workshop, where they can raise the car on our ramps and marvel and the immaculate condition of underside which is as clean as the top half!.
