In the spirit of the Melbourne Cup..
A 1980's Superstar, a real GT. Mitsubishi's very own thoroughbred.. (haha..)
A late widebody example, of one of Mitsubishi's greats. High-tech competition for Nissans Fairlady Z / 300ZX, or Toyota's Supra.
This is the only generation of the Starion nameplate - which had a thoroughly 80's production run, being manufactured from 1982 to 1989.
Like the Cordia, its as if they were made of glass. They must have had such a hard time in the used market, going through owners in the 90's. They were cheap performance.. and were thrashed to death.
I only knew one kid with one. It was stolen, and that was that.
I never see any these days.. and its a shame. :(
Black paint, and the (GSR-VR spec) widebody arches. Those flares really look great here.
..the 16" Starion wheels.. damn... they're maybe just a little awesome..
Comfy looking seats, a Momo wheel, and expected Auto shifter.
Being a later production car (1988), this Starion has the Turboed 2.6ltr SOHC Astron 4; Although earlier cars had the popular 2litre 4G63 (again in single-cam form). Power was always sent to the rear wheels.
Overall its an always-cool car. They look great, go well, and are rare.
Its surprising they're not more popular these days, but I guess that's not easy when there's so few around.
Wonder when I'll see one next..
..I reckon I'd settle for simply seeing a Cordia..!
