The Mitsubishi Ecplise is a modified car that plays a major role in The Fast and the Furious Series.
The Fast and the FuriousEdit
This car is a 1997 RS model as a GS-T model would have the 4g63t engine as opposed to the 420a engine which sits backwards in the engine bay compared to the 4g63. Equipped with a 420A, cool air intake, a NOS fogger system, a T4 turbo, direct port nitrous, and an AIC controller, not to mention the "Motec system exhaust"; this was the car owned by Brian O'Conner in The Fast and The Furious. He used it to race Dominic Toretto in the drag race near the beginning of the first film. It was later shot up by Johnny Tran, rupturing the nitrous tanks and causing them to explode. Although it was owned by Brian, it is hinted at in the first film that it was funded by the LAPD; when one of the detectives complains of the price of the car, after it is destroyed. Later when Brian tells Sgt. Tanner that he needa another car which Tanner asked what happened to the Eclipse and he tells him that Johnny Tran destroyed it and turns out it was owned by Tanner. This was arguably one of the most iconic cars in the film series. Some more Ecplises were seen at Race Wars.
