How Much Did The Mitsubishi 3000GT/GTO Cost New?

When the Mitsubishi 3000GT (GTO in Japan) launched in 1990 it was one of the most advanced Japanese cars produced to date. It featured incredible technologies that few other cars had and on paper, it looked like one of the best performance vehicles money could buy.

Initially the 3000GT, along with its rebadged cousin the Dodge Stealth, sold incredibly well with sales eclipsing those of the likes of the Mazda RX-7, the Nissan 300ZX and the Toyota Supra. However, in the latter part of the 1990s, sales dropped off dramatically and production was eventually halted in the year 2000 for the Japanese domestic market.

Today the 3000GT/GTO has become somewhat of a classic with prices increasing. With that in mind we thought we would look back at what the 3000GT original cost new. Finding reliable information on the original price in the United States and other markets for the different model years is a bit difficult, so we are going to be looking at the original prices for the Japanese GTO.

Prices for the 1990 Japanese Mitsubishi GTO started at 3,335,000 Yen and went up to 3,985,000 Yen for the top spec Twin Turbo model. Prices fluctuated up and down depending on the model and the year.
