    it's not meant to stand up to the 3000GT it's a completly different animal, it's over a thousand pounds lighter than a VR-4 and it has a 4 cylinder motor<!-- Signature -->

    the FTOs are used in rally and stuff, so i dont think theyre on the same level as the 3000gts. Plus, they are cheaper.

    I would love to get my hands on one of these cars I don't car if stock they don't preform like the 3000GT's the money saved is preformance gained<!-- Signature -->

    Looks good but will you choose it over a '99 eclipse GSX?.
     
  8. Re: OH DAMN

    The FTO is basicaly a model inbetween the Eclipse and the 3000GT (GTO in Japan).

    See my other post under the other topic "Why it's not available in the US"

    Until a few years ago it was only available in Japan and New Zealand, but that has now changed and is available in other countries.

    The Integra Type R is better the FTO suffers from severe understeer at about 95mph where as you can push a bit harder with the Integra before the kerb starts to be a problem! Thats the problem with Front wheel drive.
    Mitsubishi FTO Gpx Vs Honda Integra Type R, 0 - 1

    1) The Integra is also front wheel drive.
    2) That is why there is now the FTO GP Version R! Mitsubishi's answer to the Integra Type R.

    and

    3) I don't recall the Integra winning Japanese Car of the Year at any point, where as the FTO did in 1994. Which says a lot about the type of car the Integra is! and which car people prefer when it comes to choosing between the two!
     
  12. Re: OH DAMN

    Hard Question! How bout just buy them both!<!-- Signature -->
     
  13. Re: OH DAMN

    ya the eclipse is for sure nicer!!!

    new and older...
     
  14. Re: OH DAMN

    Hmm...kinda disappointed with its performance...it just don't feel like 200HP<!-- Signature -->
     
  15. Re: OH DAMN

    i would take the fto any day...
    the new eclipse looks too much like a maranello<!-- Signature -->
     
  16. Re: OH DAMN

    Yeah the new eclipse looks like a 550 maranello, I like the looks but not the acceleration performance. FTO's are used in touring car races in japan, I don't know if they're used in rally races coz the evo series rule that competition.<!-- Signature -->

    It'll be trashed badly<!-- Signature -->
     
  18. Re: OH DAMN

    yeah, well, take a quick look at the front end styling....looks distinctly like a car made in 1992 known as the Aston Martin DB7...The DB7 has also been hailed the "prettiest car on earth" by zounds of people.

  20. Re: OH DAMN

    i would choose this car over almost any import
     
  21. Re: OH DAMN

    Mitsubishi doesn't use FTOs in rally races, they use the LANCEER EVO. FTOs are used in touring car races in japan along with the GTO.<!-- Signature -->
