The all-new for 1994 Mistsubish FTO won Car of the Year in Japan upon its domestic debut. The edgy styling, punchy V6, is beloved among enthusiasts, and this 1995 has incredible driving dynamics for a sports car of this era. The example presented here has been properly imported with a clean title. Offered with a mere 83k KM /51k verified miles, this silver example is in great shape and the body is straight other than a few minor dings and chips associated with normal use. There are also some light surface defects on the roof, but the paint presents well with a rich shine. Adorned with a set of aftermarket alloy wheels , this little FWD terror is ready to carve up the tarmac here stateside after a 25-year wait!
The interior quality and layout are a big step up compared to most '90s imports. This right hand drive JDM features flowing interior lines and contours are a direct departure from the more angular aesthetic of older JDM imports. The low-lying dash offers an unobstructed view of the road ahead and is in good shape. It neither suffers from distortion or cracking, and matches the color of the headliner, carpets, and door cards. A digital climate system is mounted in the center stack and is remarkably easy to use. The heat and A/C function properly and a set of optional OEM center-mounted gauges monitor battery life and include an analog clock. The factory stereo head has been updated with a Kenwood AM/FM with AUX input. The tilt steering wheel capped with Nardi wood steering wheel and the FTO also includes power windows, locks, and mirrors. The aforementioned door cards and headliner are properly upholstered and clean, and the touch surfaces like the gear lever and steering wheel have held up nicely. The most impressive cockpit item is the fully bolstered seats. Above average in condition, the fabric is soft to the touch and the holds you snug while cornering. There is some typical wear on the driver's seat bolster.
The drivetrain feels stout and sturdy, and the torquey V6 bark is fantastic. The 1998cc mill starts up immediately with a twist of a key. All stock, the engine compartment presents as clean and in good order. The MIVEC mill provides plenty of power for passing and merging onto the highway. Mated to a four-speed automatic transmission, power is sent to the front wheels. The underside of this FTO is extremely clean and presents as well cared for. Unlike many cars with nearly 200hp, Mitsubishi did a fine job of sorting out much of the torque steer, and FTO goes right where you point it. The power steering is properly weighted and the brakes feel assured. The factory suspension is comfortable enough for daily driving but also provides proper dampening for more spirited drivers. Nighttime driving is aided by a set of projection headlamps and OEM fog lamps mounted low on the bumper. the silver aftermarket alloy wheels are all wrapped in low profile radial tires.
