The Mitsubishi FTO is something of a symbol of UK buyer power. With Mitsubishi refusing to give the car an official UK launch, coupe buyers voted with their wallets and made the 'Fresh Touring Origination' the top selling Japanese import. Offering purposeful styling, razor-sharp handling and a range of high-tech engines, the FTO became the totem of the 'Gran Turismo' generation. Tracking down a used example is simplicity itself. Finding an honest one may well take a little more endeavour.
As a cheap, modern coupe, the Mitsubishi FTO has few rivals. Unlike the first importers, you won't be buying a whole lot of exclusivity as word has well and truly got out regarding the FTO's qualities. As long as you're aware of the difference between buying and running official UK cars and Japanese import models, then you shouldn't come a cropper. Don't think your low mileage import FTO is worth a lot more than you paid for it, because it's definitely a buyer's market, and there are no shortage of cheap FTOs washing round the system. As such, you can afford to take your time, be picky and buy the best you see. If the driving experience doesn't put a smile on your face, the thought of what you could have bought with what you spent on your FTO certainly will.
