M3 vs. Mits 3000GT

I was driving one night in the summer in the M3, and I see this 3000GT, so I'm curious to see what happens. It killed me so easily it was ridiculous. The guy said he'd done some 'things' to his car, but it was more then 'some', trust me. From a light he beat me (although I don't find the M3 particularly good from a stop), from driving 40kph he beat me, from 60kph he beat me. And it wasnt just by a bit, he was smoking me. I tried so many different things, and nothing worked.

Does anyone know who this guy might be? Or have seen the car before? It's black... or dark green, and has two LCD screens in the front of the car.

I live in Burlington by the way

3000gt?

So it was a Mitsu, not the Stealth? Well, if he killed you the way you say he did, it must have been the VR4 - twin turbo. Key word - TURBO! I don't think it would take a hell of a lot of effort to make those things beasts! 320hp stock. I used to like them back in the day. No real surprise to me.......

You know what, now that you mentioned it, it may have been the Stealth. This happened last summer so I can't remember perfectly... but Stealth seems more likely then 3000GT... my mistake.

times

If memory serves me correct. They still posted times of 5.5s or so to 100km/hr. So in the same category as 300ZX TT, NSX, and M3. But....this car came in AWD.

and, with some cash, a few quick turbo upgrades make it considerably faster.
