1998 Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX by "throtl" for SEMA!

The first car that was in the first part of the Fast and Furious series showed up was a green one Mitsubishi Eclipse. And like almost everyone else, it has of course been one of the most famous vehicles in the film series and Universal Studios since then. And in 2021 he'll get one modernized homage put aside by the “Throtl” team. The one-off made on the basis of a GSX is delighted with all wheel drive in combination with one Turbo engine (4G63T) while the movie car was front-wheel drive only. And while the movie cars are often far from where they appear to be, this vehicle is tip-top and doesn't fall apart when the door is closed. And of course there are also the two appropriate ones in the rear Bottles of NOSthat are apparently just waiting for the right moment to be ignited. They built in the cockpit Sparco racing seats with a fixed back and for that certain something they are covered with leather. In addition, the seats have individual ones Sparco sport belts included. It continues with a matte black removable one Sparco sports steering wheel.

Instead of the familiar NOS setup from the original one has Throttle übrigens Nitrogen valves installed. In action, they are reminiscent of Paul Walker's R34 Skyline from the second film and are also to be understood as an homage. They are built into the hood and of course they leave an extremely cool effect. And that goes for them too Unterbodenbeleuchtung (+ Puddle lights) and basically all the rest of the vehicle.

The Eclipse GSX got one too, of course Airride air suspension and there's a huge one in the trunk Subwoofer. On the outside, the rear shows itself with a special one diffuser and moreover is a subtle one spoiler installed. And in front? There's a tuned engine under the hood with a new one XXL turbocharger developed by Forced performance. The team made the complete one Made-to-measure pipingto ensure that the right performance comes out in the end.

The performance is still unknown!

And, of course, the highly visible also has a share in the performance Intercooler in the specially made front apron with front splitter. However, the actual performance is so far unknown. Otherwise, the information about the vehicle is still limited. But at least we know that the wheelset is specially made 18 inch HRE Performance Wheels of the type RS101 deals with Falken RT-660 slippers are equipped in the format 275/35. Everything is rounded off with a special one Carbon bonnet and an Vollfolierung in the original design. The one-off should definitely be an absolute eye-catcher at the SEMA Auto Show that is currently taking place and Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) would certainly have liked it too.
