The Mitsubishi Eclipse is a modified car that plays a minor role in The Fast and the Furious Series.
The Fast And The FuriousEdit
This car is a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse GS with a 420a 16-valve dual overhead cam 2-Liter 4-cylinder engine rated at 165hp before turbo, according to the official "Cars of The Fast and The Furious" book written by the man who built the cars, Eddie Paul. It doesn't specify model, so could be either an RS,GS,or GSX. It has a full Robo Car Aero Armor Eclipse Body Kit, custom made carbon fiber front splitter, a custom GT style roof scoop, a ARP two level GT2 style wing, carbon fiber mirrors, 1997 spec Eclipse headlights, and green neon lighting, alongside SE7EN 18-inch wheels by Axis Sport Tuning Inc. in 225/40ZR18 Toyo Tires. This was the car owned by "Brian Earl Spilner" aka Brian O'Conner (Paul Walker) in The Fast and The Furious. He used it to race Dominic Toretto in the drag race near the beginning of the first film. Although it was owned by Brian, it is hinted in the film that it was funded by the LAPD, when one of the detectives complains of the price of the car.
