I purchased my FTO in August 2005, from Awesome Imports in Bristol, i had been looking around on the net for one but when i saw this one i knew i had to have it. Deep Burgundy colour, 96 - facelift model and no mods - perfect. The model I have is a 2ltr DOHC 24v V6 Mivec .200BHP (so the manual...

I was sitting at some traffic lights one evening when a gorgeous silver sports car drove up next to me. There and then I decided I had to have one. That car was a Mitsubishi FTO V6 MIVEC. I purchased mine for £5,300 from Cricketfield Service Station in Essex. Living in Kent and having to travel...

“A nice car to own ...”

published 12/09/2003

ProFast, good handling and nice looks

ConsLooks are subjective. Import car. Cramped at back.

But not particularly cheap. Being an import, you have to be weary of a number of things: 1) the service history of the car (unless you can read and understand japanese service history) 2) the cost of insurance 3) the availability of parts. Saying that, apart from insurance, the other items can be...

“Mitsubishi FTO GPX”

published 06/12/2004

ProLooks, reliability, great value, seriously fun

ConsExpensive to run

I was a little weary buying an import car at first and heard all sorts of horror stories about imports. However there is a dedicated FTO owners club which you can join for £10 a year. There is always someone who can offer advise and supply spares if required. Mitsubishi also support this car at...

ConsInsurance, fuel consumption.

The first thing to praise about this car is the road handling. At certain speeds on the right road it just glides. Mine is semi auto - thought it would be boring but its not - choice to have fun or relax - quite surprised. Front wheel drive but still exciting. Loads of parts readily avail , help...

“A lot of dash for your cash”

published 21/05/2004

ProQuick, responsive, turns heads & different

ConsA bit impractical

Stand out from the crowd for as little as £6000. Jap imports all have low mileages & have been looked after really well (mine is 9 years old but looks like almost new). 200bhp, traction control, ABS, air con, sleek styling & a sound system that most nightclubs would be proud of - cool. You'de...

ProHandling, performance, looks, reliability

Consrunning costs and insurance

Own one a couple of years back and not long after I sold it I went to see if I could buy it back. I had the GPX MIVEC V6 with manual gearbox, what a car turned heads wherever I went. The engines are bulletproof and classed as screamers because they love to be driven at high revs. Petrol...

This car is quick, reliable and has wonderful handling, there is a certain stiffness to the drive that gives a positive response, making this an all round good sports car.
