1999 Eclipse New Car Test Drive
Some cars try to conceal their performance with conservative styling in order to appeal to a broader market. Others flaunt their performance, wearing it like a badge. Take the Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T. Its stance is so aggressive, its lines so sleek, its visage so predatory, that it looks like it's going a hundred miles an hour when it's sitting in the driveway.
The performance of the Eclipse GS-T backs up its visage. A turbocharged 210-horsepower engine muscles it out of the blocks like a slingshot. It accelerates quicker than a Honda Prelude or Acura Integra GS-R. It gets to a hundred in a hurry and keeps on going.
