1982-1989 MITSUBISHI Starion specifications Classic and Performance Car

Considering it was Mitsubishi’s first foray into the high performance coupé market, the Starion proved incredibly popular. But the turbocharged Mitsubishi not only looked good, but also went exceedingly well thanks to its turbocharged power unit shared with the Lancer Turbo. The Starion was constantly developed during its eight-year life, and eventually appeared in wide-body form as well as being powered by one of the modern-era’s largest four cylinder engines - a 2.6-litre. And before you ask, the name is actually a shortened form of ‘Star of Orion’.
