Mitsubishi FTO/Starion/Galant/Legnum/Scorpion market review from our 2020 Japanese Classic & Performance Car Guide

Loads of variety in this grouping but only the Starion is showing serious price gains. Local cars remain generally below $30,000 but the odd one at Japanese auctions will cost more and land here at close to $50K.

Given their 1990s rally heroics we did think that early Galant VR4s might be doing better by now, however typical cars hover at $8000-10,000.

Later twin-turbo VR4s are cheaper again and the big surprise is how far and fast the price of a decent Legnum AWD wagon has fallen.

FTO coupes with their 2.0-litre V6 once were common in our market but disappearing fast. Less common but making a comeback is the 1970s Scorpion which has pushed past $10,000.

FTO 1994-99 $3865 [9] 

Galant VR4 1989-93 $8170 [7]

Galant VR4 1996-01 $7125 [7] 

Legnum VR4 1996-01 $5600 [5]

Scorpion $13,000 [3] 

Starion 1982-89 $35,655 [3]
