DOTS: little red Mitsubishi FTO

September 23, 2012 in down on the street

In the Netherlands we did receive a couple of the cool nineties-era Mitsubishi products like the Lancer Evo II (and III), GTO (called 3000GT here) and the Eclipse, but the FTO was a Japan-only exclusive model. You can imagine my amazement when I spotted this little red RHD Mitsubishi FTO in my rear view mirror:

DOTS: 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSi

November 27, 2010 in dots

Found this 1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse mk2 parked a few blocks away a few weeks ago:

This Eclipse is a late type Eclipse and, as you can see, a bit tuned up. The wheels are Nissan GT-R Nismo lookalikes Work Emotions and just a tiny bit too small for the car but that doesn’t ruint the looks at all…

And at the rear it features a very small spoiler (edit: OEM spoiler) as well:

I must say that, apart from the wheels, the whole style looks well balanced.
