MIT­SUBISHI CORDIA TURBO

Let’s start with a bit of trivia. The Mit­subishi Cordia Turbo was the weapon of choice for the first celebrity race at the first Aus­tralian Grand Prix in Ade­laide in 1985. Man­u­fac­tured between 1982 and 1990, the front drive 1.8-litre turbo four, ef­fec­tively the Star­ion’s lit­tle brother was a bit of fun to chuck around thanks to its light weight and rel­a­tively high out­put of 101 kilo­watts. The Cordia Turbo didn’t suf­fer gulfs of turbo lag, and its boost gauge jumped at the slight­est prod of the throt­tle. It fea­tured MacPher­son strut front and beam rear sus­pen­sion and disc brakes. These days the Cordia Turbo is hard to find and has a cult fol­low­ing, both es­sen­tial in­gre­di­ents for fu­ture es­ca­lat­ing prices. They are well worth the hunt.
