1998 Mitsubishi 3000GT 4WD 4WS


  • Fantastic 3l V6 twin turbo engine
  • Classic 90’s GT styling looks superb
  • MOT’d and ready to drive

The Appeal

The Mitsubishi 3000GT is the rarer non-JDM sibling to the infamous GTO. WIth a fantastic 3l V6 twin turbo engine up front and a wide, low body the 3000GT is a quick car that’ll put a smile on anyone's face. 

A true 90’s legend the 3000GT was sought after at the time and now they have become even harder to find. This 3000GT would be a perfect candidate for restoring one of these fantastic cars. Running and with six months MOT it only needs a little work to get back onto the road and whilst it would benefit from some cosmetic work, we think that once you drive it the only thing you’ll want to do is go and find some twisty A roads!

The History and Paperwork

The Interior

  • Classic 90’s Japanese styling
  • Deep black leather seats front and rear in good condition aside from significant wear to the driver's seat upper bolster

  • Carpeting and headlining present well
  • Electric sunroof is fully functional
  • Electric windows work well
  • All of the gauges work, including turbo pressure and oil
  • Door cards would benefit from some attention

The Exterior

  • Finished in dark blue

  • Headlight lenses show some fogging
  • Extensive areas of lacquer peel, fading and small chips visible on most areas of the body
  • One front light lens missing

The Mechanics

  • Runs well and idles smoothly
  • The 3l V6 engine sounds simply fantastic with no unwanted noises
  • Underside appears to be in good condition with evidence of recent work having been carried out as can be seen in the images
  • Engine and engine bay present well with some room for cosmetic improvement
  • The vendor reports that the power steering doesn’t currently function due to a leaking pipe for the rear wheel steering system
  • The vendor informs us that they will replace the battery prior to sale as the car will not start with the current one - it does however bump start very easily
  • Boost gauge shows good turbo pressure on acceleration


A fantastic car that would be perfect for light restoration, this 3000GT is everything that was great about the 90’s Japanese car scene; a big turbo’d engine, bold distinctive styling and packed full of technology.

About Max Bids

The max bid process allows you to bid without any hassle.
Enter your maximum bid and we will then bid on your behalf to ensure you're the highest bidder - just enough to keep you in the lead and only up until your maximum.


C&C prevent auction snipers from bidding in the last seconds to win an auction.
Auctions are extended by 3-minutes if anyone bids within the last 2 minutes to allow other bidders to react and counter-bid.

Auto-bidding increments

  • If your maximum bid is equal to or below the reserve price, your maximum bid will be applied in full if you are the highest bidder.
  • If you are the highest bidder and place a maximum bid above the reserve, we will automatically put in the reserve as your first bid.
    • Once the reserve has been met, Car & Classic will make sure you are the highest bidder using only the bidding increments stated below.
    • We will keep you in the lead up until your maximum bid OR the increment closest to your maximum bid, providing your maximum bid is enough to cover the increment value.

Bid Amount Increment
£0 to £10,000 £100.00
£10,000 to £50,000 £250.00
£50,000 to £100,000 £500.00
£100,000+ £1000.00

Automatically outbid immediately

When you place a max bid and are outbid immediately that means that another bidder has placed a max bid limit which is higher than yours.
You can bid again and we will use our automatic bid system to try and get you as the highest bidder.

Matching max bids

When there are two max bids of the same value, the one placed first remains the lead bidder.

What are pre-bids?

A pre-bid means you’re able to place a bid before the official start of the auction.
You will be notified whether or not you are the highest bidder when the auction starts.

Problem with your bid

Bids are contractually binding. To help protect you, we have some rules in place if we think it's been mistyped. Please check and amend what you have entered.
