It’s no secret that Mitsubishi is challenged and it doesn’t have a lot of models to offer right now. Even so, this brand could make a comeback and offer you vehicles that could be perfect for you in the future. So that you can have some confidence in that fact, you’ll want to see what some of the best Mitsubishi cars have been during the history of this car brand.
1975 Colt Galant GTO GSR Coupe
The European arm of Mitsubishi was the Colt brand name and when the brand launched in that market, two models were offered. These models were the Lancer and Galant. The GTO GSR model offered and aggressive-look, a coupe build, and the power desired at the time. This certainly made for a car that would begin to show us what Mitsubishi could be.
1976 Colt Celeste
It wasn’t long after the launch of the Colt brand, which was really Mitsubishi, in Europe that the Galant was replaced by a new model. This new car was called the Celeste. This car gave the market a gorgeous three-door hatchback coupe that had a 1.6-liter engine that gave you more power and performance than you would expect for a car of this era.
1980 Colt Lancer EX 2000 Turbo
The early part of the 1980s was one of the worst eras in automotive history, but the Colt/Mitsubishi team was able to offer an exciting car in Europe that was a veritable wolf in sheep’s clothing. This car has 124 horsepower, which was a lot for the time, and it happened to be the Colt Lancer EX 2000 Turbo. This car had everything that you wanted when it was time for a drive.
1982 Colt/Mitsubishi Shogun I
The first of the SUVs offered by the Colt/Mitsubishi brand was the Shogun I which started what has been one of the most amazing SUV runs in the history of the automotive world. During the formative years, the Shogun was one of the most important SUVs to help create the reputation that we still admire when it comes to the SUVs that are offered at Mitsubishi dealers.
1990 Mitsubishi 3000GT
One of the most incredible cars to come out of Mitsubishi in its entire history was the 3000GT. This car rivaled all the other Japanese sports cars of the era to be the one that we could look at as the best offered. This high-performance sports coupe was developed with Chrysler and was sold in the US to give us a glorious Mitsubishi sports car to drive.
2001 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VI
A cult following was started when the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO came to the market for some fun and active driving. This car was one that many tuners got hold of to transform it, upgrade it, and give it the feeling of performance desired. This was easily one of the best Mitsubishi cars that you could find when it was time for a drive on the track.
2015 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X FQ-440 MR
This rally-inspired AWD sports car was one of the most amazing to ever head out on the road. The EVO X FQ-440 MR was offered for the European market and only 40 were produced in 2015 and it was completely sold out in a matter of a few hours. This is one of the most expensive and most powerful EVO models ever sold.
