The Starion is considered to be one of the originators of the modern Japanese turbocharged performance sportscars of the era and certainly the first to use electronic fuel injection. Over the production run of the Starion, nearly every year brought changes, with increased engine power, as well as larger body sizes and more complexity in the vehicle. The introduction of the 'widebody' also split the car into two distinct ranges, one of which was a non-intercooled lower horsepower car using the narrow body style and a high-performance intercooled widebody. The Starion used a traditional front-mounted engine with rear-wheel drive layout. Many came with a limited slip differential and anti-lock brakes  as standard features. Horsepower varied between 150-197hp depending mostly upon the turbocharger that was fitted, the presence of an intercooler and whether the 8-valve or 12-valve head was used.
Presented here is a unique opportunity to acquire a very collectable EX Turbo, 2.6 litre Widebody in gleaming Mexican red with a contrasting black Nappa leather Recaro sports interior. Registered in the UK on 5th February, 1990, it has a five speed manual gearbox with limited slip differential. All the original body mouldings, EX widebody option spoilers are in place and all are in 'as new' condition. It has the original factory 16" turbo option alloy wheels which are also in 'as new' condition with good quality 215/55/16 Goodyear Eagle tyres on the front and 225/50/16 Michelin Pilot tyres to the rear.
Reportedly free from any accident damage or repairs, the comprehensive service history declares 22 stamps from Mitsubishi main dealers and after a ten year period in dry storage, the car has been recommisioned and recently maintained by specialists.
The original and complete toolkit is present, along with the space saver wheel and jack. The original handbook is also present as are the spare keys and alarm fobs. With reportedly just 15 examples left in the UK, this one is best described as in 'showroom condition'; totally original in standard trim and with a genuine low mileage, this has got to be one of the best examples of the desirable widebody Starions around.
