With a heavy heart I am selling my no expense spared, hugely cared for and obsessed over 1992 Mitsubishi GTO Z16A 3.0 6G72 DOHC 24V TT V6 4WS 4WD
I have owned this car for over a year, whilst it has been a great car to work on and get to a great standard, unfortunately with ULEZ restrictions coming in later this month, living in London forces the sale, after I have spent all of the money getting it to the perfect GTO I always wanted. I’ve tried to list all work I can remember.
Mechanically perfect in good working order mileage as of 09/10/2021 is 124,882 km so 77,598 miles and will go up slowly with daily use, as these cars should be used. Only used for 20 mins+ drives and always used V-Power in my ownership. Resides in my underground car park away from the elements and is completely solid underneath I have many pictures of the underside
I purchased this car already with the fully stainless exhaust system, downpipe cat delete, gets through MOT legit with no emissions test as the MOT emissions regs came in in 1992. Sounds incredible, HKS SSQV BOV nicely loud but no too asbo loud unless you really put your foot down, vids can be sent. Timing belt changed at 114 km in December 2019. MK2 big brakes

Pretty much all parts unless used always purchased from Rob at EvilEmpire and some from 3sx/ninja performance in usa
Went to Westfield Motors from June 2021-Sept 2021 invoice to show totalling £1475 not including all parts:
-radiator cross member was rusting, didn’t really need to get this done and didn’t make economical sense to do so as I knew it was going for sale but hey, sourced a cross member from jappatack, had it cut out, sent to Westfields and welded in, pic included
-koyorad aluminium radiator and modified radiator brackets
-low mileage AC rad installed
-A/C recharge (ice cold!)

-n/s inner cv boot
-October 2021 02/10/2021 service Fuchs Titan Race Pro S Fully Synthetic 10w-50 Oil, oil filter Mitsubishi oem
-fog light bulbs
And probably many more I can’t recall/remember, loads of little trim bits that were scuffed all made a big difference to interior.
Not to mention many countless hours scouring online pages/forums/vids for parts/tutorials/info
This car owes me something between 17-19k now I have lost count I just pay out whatever is needed, I wish I could keep it as the prices for these are only going one way and with all of the recent work in the last 12 months this is a great example that has had many jobs completed so great peace of mind for new owner. I do not like to work on this car myself so have always given it to Westfield Motors the GTO experts for any work that isn’t an oil change or trim changes!
I have also uploaded 100+ pictures of the car, link below, for very interested purchasers as I haven’t stopped taking pics since I got the car at every stage. I have recently sold the 18” Rota GTR wheels so my GTO comes with in my opinion the best wheels for this car the 17” 1996 GTO MK2 5 spoke enkei OEM alloys refurbed a few months ago perfectly, with OEM hubcaps and all matching new Goodyear 225/50/17 tyres have only covered roughly 600-1000 miles.
Paintwork on front bumper and roof isn’t perfect with a few marks these two could do with a respray but has never bothered me. This has been reflected in price. 4 wheel steer is good, rear active aero goes up and down and previous owner serviced it/changed microswitches, front active aero has been removed as almost all have by now but wiring and everything is still there, I hear some guys here are working on some new kits.
For the car’s age it is in superb condition throughout. There are cheaper examples out there for sale but a lot of work that has been taken care of on this car will just need doing with them, no leaks at all
Rev gauge has stopped working I have sourced a working set of dials to go with car, new owner can choose whether to switch out dials or replace the failing part the rev gauge capacitors and retain original mileage.
Car will come with:
New dashboard vents, working speedo and I also have another set of black side skirts if wanted by new owner - also Fuchs Titan Race Pro S Fully Synthetic 10w-50 Oil, all can be seen in picture.
