The 1990 Mitsubishi 3000 GT it was sort of a Grantourismo Japanese car.

In order to sell them in the U.S., the Mitsubishi had to cut a deal with Chrysler Corp. So, Chrysler made some exterior modifications and sold it as a Dodge Stealth. But the Mitsubishi was the real deal. And yes. Both had pop-up headlights.

The long, flat, hood, the small cabin, and the big, rear window were part of the Japanese styling. The Acura/Honda NSX had one, but it has the engine in the rear. On the sides, there were some air-scoops in front of the rear wheels but it is hard to understand why. And it had wheels up to 18" which, for 1990, were huge! Imagine that in the same era Mitsubishi Galant had 15" wheels.

Inside, there is a luxurious interior with leather seats and standard manual transmission. Strangely, it has rear seats but those were small even for a bichon. The car featured an interesting audio system that had a CD, a tape player, and a radio.

It had only 3.0-liter V6 engines. But there were three different versions: with 2 valves per cylinder, 4-valves per cylinder and then a 4-valves per cylinder and twin-turbo. The car had either FWD for the lower power versions or AWD for top versions. Its major flaw was the weight. The top VR4 version was almost 1760 kg (3880 lbs).
