Mitsubishi 3000GT Rendering Is A Work of Art From A VW Designer

Call it the Mitsubishi 4000GT

  • Mitsubishi 3000GT rendering of the 4000GT modernized a classic 90s Japanese performance coupe

  • Original car featured all-wheel drive and active aerodynamics


If the 3000GT was ever to come back, it needs to be based off of this Mitsubishi incredible 4000GT rendering. Oddly enough, this stunning design is the work of Matthew Parsons, an industrial designer currently working for Volkswagen South Africa.

Heck, Volkswagen should use the design for their own performance coupe. Call it the new Corrado or give it a whole different name, doesn’t matter. Just use it.

Of course, its original purpose as a reimagined 3000GT called the Mitsubishi 4000GT makes a lot of sense too. Mitsubishi doesn’t have anything close to a performance vehicle in its lineup and has said before that we shouldn’t expect a new Lancer EVO. Bringing back one of the brightest coupes of the 1990s would give the brand immediate and needed attention.

The original Mitsubishi 3000GT featured all-wheel drive, active aerodynamics, and four-wheel steering. It featured a twin-turbo 3.0-litre V-6 engine with 320 horsepower and 315 pound-feet of torque, although on paper power was limited to 280 horsepower because of a Gentleman’s agreement between Japanese performance coupe builders.

Parsons says this Mitsubishi 4000GT would feature an evolution of the Mitsubishi VR-4 system (viscous coupling 4WD) called VR-5.

Power would still come from a turbocharged engine, although an electric motor could be added to turn the 4000GT into a performance hybrid. Ultimately, with a design like this, the possibilities are limitless.
