Mitsubishi Legnum/Delica/3000GT

Plans for a 2020 relaunch of the Mitsubishi Express shouldn’t affect sales of the ‘grey market’ Delica.

Early versions are disappearing quickly but being replaced by better equipped 2001-06 models at under $15,000 and 2007-09 versions only $5000 more. Still out there but disappearing as imports seem to have stopped are two of Mitsubishi’s more interesting twin-turbo models; the Legnum wagon and 3000GTO coupe.

The 3000 was sold here for a while in Twin Turbo and non-Turbo form but buyer response was abysmal and the recent price recovery comes as a surprise.

The 2.5-litre Legnum VR4 is a good thing but people seem wary of mechanical complexity so they are stuck in the $6000-9000 bracket.

Legnum VR4 1996-01 $6920 [17] 

Delica 1994-2000 $9955 [18]

Delica 2001-04 $12,290 [14] 

Delica 2005-06 $14,090 [20]

Delica D5 2007-09 $18,270 [6] 

3000GT Non-Turbo $17,625 [3]

3000GT Twin Turbo $25,490 [8]
