Default 2014 3000gt vr4 idea

Hire ray for his 4.0 billet long block

Hire ray for his transfer case

Hire matt for his dr750 turbos

Using lancer evolution suspension, technology, transmission to compete against GTR.

Newer face lift, color choice.

Price start out at 55k.

Approx power is 650 hp crank rating at 6500 rpm, and 400 torque at 3500 due to dr750 unique design.

This will be selling more than any other car on the market.

Period.

Opinions could vary.

You honestly believe a Mitsubishi would outsell a Mustang or Camaro? And you think with all that you are asking, it would only start at $55K? Hate to say it, but there is a reason why they stopped selling the 3000GT.

dr 750's are almost ideal for a 3.0. so if you went with the 4.0, you may want slighty larger turbo's than 750's.

Aren't there enough threads dreaming about this idea already? Just do what you are saying and have one built for you and enjoy it.

I love these cars, I'm building one, I totally condone it. This is going to be another thread full of people arguing over stupid stuff that is a fantasy to begin with.

I dont get this. Not to disparage matt or ray's accomplishings, but embracing old tech innovations as opposed to the cutting edge shit of the GTR you wish the car would compete against doesnt make sense.

It all about the money. The engineers could design something badass, but the bean counters and marketing stats will back up the fact that it wouldnt sell.

Besides, mitsu's already canned their idea of performance and are moving towards shit like this



and away from evos.

It would be a bit much for someone to decide to buy a Mitsubishi performance car for 55K when no one was buying lancers the last couple years for 35-40K. It would be fun though to have all the new electronics tech, good diffs, and a fast spooling turbo in a nice car that wasnt shaped like a box. (GTR and Evo alike)

Direct injection and VCR....what a torque monster that would be.
