This car was far ahead of it’s time. A DOHC V6 with an advanced twin-turbo system, active four-wheel-steering, a variable torque-split AWD system, a computer-controlled active aerodynamics system, a variable-sound exhaust, and variable suspension stiffness. This thing is essentially a Japanese Porsche 959.

"RWD? should it not be AWD?"
I also thought it has AWD. But I know it has all wheel steering. :D

Some guy at work drives a Mitsubishi 3000 GT, however bad the picture is, it is appropriate, since the rear end is the view you're most likely to get of one of these fast machines.

The whole car is nice. Unfortunately, I don't have any good photo of this model to upload.
Mitsubishi so much needs the successor to this car, because the current Mitsubishi's lineup is absolutely unimpressive, and the Evo is already getting old... Please, Mitsu, make a 3500 GT!
