Description:

Automotive historians can tell you that the very last ANYTHING is often a collector’s dream, especially when it is heavily documented and a true one-of-a-kind vehicle like this 2012 Mitsubishi Eclipse SE. Designed to commemorate 22 years of building Eclipses at the Normal, Illinois factory, this Eclipse sports custom paint, every possible option, and is without question the very last Eclipse to ever roll off the assembly line (we know, because we picked it up at the factory last week and it’s still on the MSO). True opportunities like this don’t come along very often, so act now on this truly historical vehicle. Mitsubishi has known this day was coming for a long time, and the demise of the Eclipse was accompanied by a collective groan from sports coupe fans around the world. Representing performance and comfort in an ideal blend, the Eclipse was one of Mitsubishi’s most successful models. The paint on the final Eclipse is called Kalapana Black, a hue selected by Mitsubishi fans on Facebook, and it’s truly awesome in person. As a special vehicle, it sure looks like there was a lot of extra attention lavished on this SE coupe during the assembly process, and the finish is factory fresh in every way. It’s also almost completely devoid of the little imperfections any production car will show, because they knew they were building something that would become a red-hot collector’s item. The gaps are near perfect, the finish is smooth and glossy in a way that would look more at home on a Rolls-Royce than on a Japanese sports coupe, and since we just picked it up at the factory a few weeks ago, it’s absolutely new in every way. It’s unlikely that this car will ever be driven and enjoyed like a regular Eclipse, and it is already well on its way to being a spectacular showpiece. There’s really not much chrome on these cars, but the blacked-out trim is, of course, in new condition. From the chrome badge on the nose to the chrome-lipped rear spoiler, the car is completely untouched and undamaged. The crystalline HID headlights and cool clear tail lights shine like jewelry, and the dual chrome exhaust tips under the rear bumper glitter against the inky black paint. The final Eclipse is nothing if not a stunner. The final Eclipse also offers a unique set of mechanicals to go with its status as the last of the breed. An SE model with the 3.8-liter, 268 horsepower MiVEC V6 was never available to the public, but this is indeed such a machine. With big bottom-end torque, this car, if you’re so inclined, will shred the tires and pull through the gears with an urgency that was once reserved for big cubic inch muscle cars. The engine bay, of course, is as perfect as it was when it left the factory, with no signs of use, age, or neglect—after all, it has only driven out of the factory, into our trailer, and then into the showroom. The aluminum remains bright and shiny, including the cast intake manifold, the fittings are free of tool marks, and the bright red cam covers add a welcome splash of color in the monochromatic engine bay. There’s no doubt that Mitsubishi designers understood that having the engine bay look cool as well as operate efficiently was an important consideration, and you’ll note that this car also carries one other special feature: the signatures of the engineers in the engine bay. Nothing has been modified, changed, or adjusted since it left the Normal, Illinois factory, and it has the original fluids, filters, and other disposables inside it. The engine is backed by a 4-speed Sportronic automatic transmission with manual selection. The suspension is the upgraded SE package and the all-independent setup offers world-class handling with a comfortable ride. And like the engine bay, the chassis is completely original and unmarked, including the exhaust, shocks, and brakes. There’s no wear on the four-wheel discs—in fact, there are no signs of use anywhere on the car. Even those gorgeous argent black 18-inch alloy wheels, which are also unique to this car, are perfectly preserved and wear 235/45/18 Goodyear Eagle RS-A radials that even have the mold marks on the tread. Beautifully finished, the black leather interior features seats with French seams stitched in contrasting white thread and zero signs of use. This special Eclipse is also loaded with every option Mitsubishi could throw at an Eclipse, including a 650-watt Rockford Fosgate nine-speaker audio system with Sirius/XM satellite radio, hands-free Bluetooth phone interface, and a rearview camera. The carpets are completely unmarked, the door panels are new, and the trunk compartment has never carried anything more substantial than a piece of paper (which is a good thing, because that massive subwoofer takes up quite a bit of space). This car is ready to go with everything intact and operational, and thanks to Mitsubishi’s careful engineering, it’ll likely stay that way forever. Documentation on an important car like this is critical, and we have all the documents that came with it originally, including the window sticker, build sheet, shipping manifest, inspection sheets, manuals, brochures, and other pamphlets that come with a new vehicle. Also note that this car is new on the MSO and has never been titled, making it an unparalleled opportunity for the smart investor. Car collecting has changed, and this is an opportunity to own something extraordinary. It used to be that automakers would keep the last car off the assembly line for themselves, or it would be a regular production model that would disappear into obscurity. Mitsubishi took the opposite view with the last Eclipse, and gave it a unique set of specifications with a one-of-a-kind color combination. This is a car that won’t just appeal to Mitsubishi fans, but to car fans that appreciate the unique opportunity it represents. Call today!
