1985 Mitsubishi Scorpion GSR turbo


Great fun, good looking, and very rare


Exhaust needed replacing.

Handbrake cable required freeing.

Slight rust on the rear arch.

New clutch.

General Comments:

This car is not awesomely quick, but has phenomenal braking due to vented discs all round and a massive servo.

Suspension could be better.

Ugly steering wheel.

Very tunable 4G63t up to 400hp, but only 170hp standard.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Get a set of really big mags (17 inch comes to mind), lower it and then bolt on extractors and exhaust. A huge increase in power comes from replacing the stock carby with a Weber or Holley. Add a stage 3 cam from RPW (www.rpw.com.au) and you have one fast Scorpion. Apart from a nice paint job, leave the body stock; it is to nice to cover in spoilers and so on.

Hey buddy.

I don't know much about the Scorpions, but I used to drive Mum's MR Coupe Lancer, it was an auto and quick shift, and that was slow as hell. The manual's a bit quicker, but I reckon that a turbocharged 2.6 Scorpion would keep up with the Lancer and probably even beat it, but I've never driven a Scorpian or a manual Lancer. But I reckon you would still be competition for the Lancer.
