1997 Manual Legnum VR4
Triumph Daytona 675
1997 Mitsubishi Legnum VR4

AWD Twin Turbo V6



The Legnum is the station wagon version of the Galant, with the VR4 being the top of the line performance model. This car features a twin turbo and intercooled 2.5L DOHC V6 with 24 valves claiming 206kW from factory (Gentleman’s agreement). It features an AWD system similar to the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution of the time with a torque vectoring rear differential (Active Yaw Control).

The small sized twin turbos come on boost early and make this car very fun to drive at normal RPM ranges. The AWD system allows you to accelerate hard whilst cornering and the car feels very grippy doing this, something which is not possible in high performance FWD or RWD cars.

These cars are already rare but also becoming classics, this car being 25 years old can now be club registered in some states in Australia, and can now be imported to the US.

This car has 240,000km on the body and about 150,000km on the engine (swapped last year). This JDM car was imported in 2009 and has been my daily for the past 5 years. The 5 speed manual with this engine and drivetrain makes any drive enjoyable.

This car has been mechanically cared for and mildly modified but cosmetically is showing its 25 year age and has accumulated a few imperfections over the years.
