    This is the 1995 Mitsubishi GTO VR-4 (Z16A Platform, AWD, 3.0L Twin-Turbocharged V6 model). Here's some history, skip to the bottom for more photos if you're easily bored:

    The Models were internally designated Z15A (2WS) and Z16A (4WS) and featured a revised front bumper to accommodate projector beam headlights and small, round projector fog lights. They were unveiled in August 1993 in Japan and gradually made their way to other markets as the earlier cars sold out. Some markets didn't get these models until 1996, such as the UK. The caps on the hood were replaced with integrated sheet metal blisters, and revised side air vents and rear bumpers were added. The interior was redesigned with dual airbags, a new audio system, and revised air conditioning refrigerant. The engines in the twin-turbo models received an increase to 320 hp (239 kW) and an increase in torque from 307 to 315 lb⋅ft (416 to 427 N⋅m). Japanese models received an increase in torque, but the power rating remained unchanged at 280 PS (206 kW; 276 hp).

    The VR-4 model now included a six-speed Getrag manual transmission with revised gear ratios, especially in lower gears like 3rd which went until approximately 107 mph (172 km/h) (vs the first generation 3000GT VR-4's third gear which went until 120 mph (193 km/h). Larger wheel/tire combinations were provided beginning in 1995. The base and SL model received 16" wheels in silver or chrome with 225/55 tires, while the VR4 now had 18" chrome wheels with 245/40 tires (the Spyder had the standard 17" with higher profile tires from 1994 to handle the additional 400 lb (180 kg) of weight) to help it go fast and look furiously good. With subsequent price increases, features were discontinued: the tunable exhaust was phased out after the 1994 model year, the ECS after the 1995 model year, and the active aerodynamics disappeared after 1996. This was also when Chrysler ceased sales of the Dodge Stealth captive import, and for the remainder of its life, only Mitsubishi-badged versions were available.

    The SL Spyders were only available with an automatic transmission while the VR-4 Spyder was only available with a 6-speed manual.

    Enough words, here are those photos i promised you:
