The Mitsubishi GTO JDM Car is a front-engine, all-wheel/front-wheel drive Grand touring/sports car manufactured and marketed by Mitsubishi from 1990-2000 .Manufactured in a very three-door hatchback coupé body style in Nagoya, Japan, the 2+2 four-seaters were marketed within the Japanese Domestic Market(JDM) because the GTO, and globally as Mitsubishi 3000GT. In North America, it was sold both because of the Mitsubishi 3000GT (1991–1999) and also the Dodge Stealth (1991–1996), a badge engineered, mechanically identical captive impact. As a collaborative effort between Chrysler and Mitsubishi Motors, Chrysler was responsible for the Stealth’s exterior styling. The JDM model took its name from the Galant GTO , a two-door hardtop coupe marketed by the corporate within the early 1970s, which successively took its name from the Ferrari 250 GTO.
There are 2 Different Versions of The GTO:
Early models were internally designated Z16A and incorporated full-time four-wheel drive, four-wheel steering, active aerodynamics with automatically adjusting front and rear spoilers, sport/tour exhaust modes and electronically controlled suspension(ECS). The GTO, 3000GT and Stealth featured pop-up headlights and articulated blister caps on the hood to accommodate the ECS controllers at the highest of the strut turrets. The Dodge Stealth featured a signature crosshair front bumper fascia and crescent-shaped rear spoiler — and failed to include active aerodynamics. In 1993 the engine visited a 4 bolt main and a forged crankshaft; a number of the first models in 1993 still received the cast crank present within the first years. In the U.S., both the 1991 to 1993 Dodge Stealth R/T Turbo and Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4 received the transversely mounted 24V V6 paired with an extended ratio 5-speed manual. The bottom model Stealth was the sole model to feature crank windows, without the sunroof it weighed at 3075 pounds or 1395kg. All the opposite models received electric windows (automatic on the driving force side). Automatic climate control was standard on all turbo models. Electronically adjustable leather seats were standard on all US VR-4 while the GTO in Japan were offered with slightly lighter cloth seats.
Facelift JDM models were internally designated Z15A (2WS) and featured a revised front bumper to accommodate projector beam headlights and little, round projector fog lights. They were unveiled in August 1993 in Japan and gradually made their way to other markets because the earlier cars sold out. Some markets didn’t get these models until 1996, like the United kingdom. The caps on the hood were replaced with integrated sheet blisters, and revised side air vents and rear bumpers were added. The inside was redesigned with dual air bags, a brand new sound system, and revised air con refrigerant. The engines within the twin-turbo models received a rise to 320 hp (239 kW) and a rise in torque from 307 to 315 lb⋅ft (416 to 427 N⋅m). Japanese models received a rise in torque, but the facility rating remained unchanged at 280 PS (206 kW; 276 hp).
