Mitsubishi Eclipse

The Mitsubishi Eclipse is a coupe that has been in production since 1989 for right hand drive markets. It was named after an 18th century English racehorse which won 26 races,[1] and has also been sold as the Eagle Talon and the Plymouth Laser captive imports through Mitsubishi Motors’ close relationship with the Chrysler Corporation. Their partnership was known as Diamond-Star Motors, or DSM, and the vehicle trio through the close of the second-generation line were sometimes referred to by the DSM moniker among enthusiast circles.

As of 2009, the Eclipse is officially available in North America, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, UAE, China, South Korea, the Philippines, and Brazil. On January 20, 2011, Mitsubishi announced its “Jump 2013” plan, which will see all U.S. built models, including the Eclipse, phased out by 2014.

Alfa Romeo GT

Alfa Romeo GT is a sports car produced by the Italian automaker Alfa Romeo between 2004 and 2010. The GT was introduced in March 2003 Geneva Motor Show and it came for sale in Italian markets January 2004.

Like the 147, the GT was based on the platform of Alfa’s outgoing mid-size 156 estate (Sportwagon in this case) car, with the coupé body styled by Bertone.[4] Most mechanicals are taken directly from the 156/147 using the same double wishbone front suspension and multilink rear setup as those two cars. The interior is based heavily on that of the smaller hatchback 147 and utilises many common parts. The GT utilises the same dash layout and functions as well as having a very similar electrical system. The engine range includes 2.0 petrol engine, a 1.9 MultiJet turbodiesel, and a top-of-the-range 3.2 V6 petrol. Read more of this post

A high waistline broadens until it reaches the rear “C” pillar. The interior also features styling treatments familiar from earlier cars, including the 156, such as deeply recessed instruments which are angled towards the driver. However, the 159 is larger than its predecessor at 4660 millimetres (183.4 in) long (some 225 mm (8.9 in) longer than the Alfa 156), 1828 mm (71.9 in) wide and 1417 mm (55.7 in) high.
