Perfect, beautiful rust-free 23 year old Mitsubishi GTO supercar. Due to the return of a health issue, she needs a new home, with someone who will look after her and show her, and every so often take her out for a trackday ! Click here for More photos.....
Just so you know, this is not a beater, boy-racer car. It's a genuine, accident-free original car (except for mostly invisible upgrades). This is destined to be a very rare and valuable supercar in the near future, judging by the rate people are scrapping the rest out there. This is my second one, having owned a 1993 3000GT VR-4 in USA from 1996-2000. Totally reliable, I just fell in love and I've always wanted another one.
The package consists of my car, which is in incredible condition considering her age, with almost no rust, clean MOT by the fussy people at the Council in May, 88k on the clock from new (imported by PO-a collector in 2004) and 4 racks of good original parts to replace most standard wear and tear items and many more which may never be needed, like all drivetrain-shafts/Rr Diff/All Calipers+discs/AC Heater unit/column etc. Worth over 2k market value by themselves. I want these all to go with the car, that way you get a really good deal.
The previous owner/importer spent 10k on her to replace the upholstery with high quality white-on-black custom-made Scottish leather, change the shock absorbers and springs to Tein Coilovers (Japanese standard upgrade path) which are adjustable for height and comfort and some other maintenance tasks.
In the 10 years he had her, he did 8000 miles total and kept her in an air-conditioned heated garage, hence the lack of rust. Her entire history in paperwork is included.
I have had her for just over a year, and she constantly puts a grin on my face every time I drive her, even around London. A very driveable and flexible supercar!
I have personally spent over 10k on her in the last year (Bills to prove), including replacing engine and gearbox, anticipating I was going to keep her till death do us part. You might have seen us at Sporting Bears events or at Castle Combe or at many shows around the country, and she always gets compliments on her appearance and people can't believe she's 23 years old. Looks better than many 5 year old cars.
She has brand new Comp Clutch Street stage 2 (servo-assisted Clutch is std.) a Wideband O2 sensor so you can see exactly how the engine fuel management is performing, a brand new OEM radiator, all belts, thermostat and hoses everywhere. Timing belt&tensioners with water pump was changed with full 60K service last year. Eurospec have been busy...
Being electrically minded I have updated to today's standards everything possible without ruining her original looks. Headlamps are Hella unit upgrades, rear lights are custom LED panel clusters, interior is like new and now has a 7inch Parrot Asteroid Smart android-based head unit which included full Bluetooth connectivity and streaming music, hands-free to 2 phones at same time. includes 128Gb SD card full of mp3s, TomTom UK and entire seamless Europe maps with speed cameras. Rear parking assist fitted.
Full set of brand new MTec Drilled/Grooved upgraded Mk.3 discs just fitted and Ferodo DS2500 front pads fitted last year. Stops perfectly - proven even from 120 at SPA F1 track!
2 separate alarm systems with remotes, one is silent (SMS) with GPS tracker/ locator and disabler. Nothing but the best for my GTO.....
She drives perfectly on original 18 inch Lenso rims, has set of almost new Federal RSR 255/35 Summer tyres, handles like its on rails. No noises, clunks or rattles, nothing needs work, just drive and enjoy! Complete replacement set of 17"BBS rims with excellent All Season/winter tyres negotiable if needed or I can easily sell them. Likewise I have the next set of planned upgrade parts that I am willing to do a package deal on eg. new pair Rob's 13T Hybrid turbos, 560 injectors and Fuel pump upgrade kit with FPR, LCDBC, and some other new parts....
As a classic, insurance offered at 350 up to 1300, former is Collectors car 3k miles restricted, latter is everything included, unlimited trackdays anywhere in Europe, agreed value, replacement, recovery, NCB protection, 15k etc.
I'm gutted now my sciatic issue has returned from many years ago (nothing to do with GTO), and I've been told I need to return to switch to an Automatic so it doesn't get any worse (repetitive left foot movement exascerbates it, whether walking or clutch)
