1994 Mitsubishi FTO GPX 2.0L V6 5MT
100,612 km or 62,518 miles
Our first FTO! Woo!!! Surely like us, this is a car that many of you have been curious about for a long time. It was probably one of, if not THE first car you purchased in Gran Turismo. What’s not to like here? Light weight, balanced handling, good 90’s looks with an interior to match, and a screaming 2.0L V6 with an 8,000 RPM redline. Even for such a small V6, it feels more torquey than a comparable 4-cylinder. But thanks to Mitsubishi’s MIVEC variable valve timing system, it fully comes alive up top. Truth be told, it also sounds a hell of a lot better than a 4-cylinder, too. The intake and exhaust systems on the car make sure that mashing that gas and hearing it wind up will make you smile. Now, this car isn’t fast by any means. It doesn’t even top 200 hp. Though, it does not feel slow, thanks to its light weight. It’s easy and comfortable to drive too, and the a/c even works! Everyone has experienced that feeling in some way, shape, or form when you got excited about something, only to find out reality is a lot lamer than the legend. We’re happy to say with the Mitsubishi FTO, that just ain’t true!

The FTO was an interesting offering by Mitsubishi from 1994 to 2000. It was a front-engined, front wheel drive coupe with three engine options and three transmission options. From weakest to most powerful, there was the 4G93 1.8l 4-cylinder with 123 hp, the 2.0 6A12 V6 with 168 hp, then the FTO GPX and GP with the MIVEC-equipped 6A12 2.0 V6 with 197hp. While the power output was relatively low, the FTO only had 2,425-2,668 lbs (depending on trim) to haul around. The FTO was available with a 5-speed manual, or a 4 or 5-speed semi-automatic, similar to Porsche’s Tiptronic at the time. The FTO was quite competitive in its class, even winning “Japan Car of the Year” in 1994-95. There was some success in motorsport, with professional and Best Motoring driver Akihiko Nakaya driving and FTO for some time. Ultimately in 2000, crash test restrictions and slow sales led to the demise of the FTO, with Mitsubishi opting out of developing a new model to conform to the new restrictions.
Financing a JDM car is slightly different than getting a conventional car loan; don’t worry, it’s easier than you might think. Go to the FINANCING section of our FAQ page for more details.
