The VR-4 was the top of the line model 3000GT produced by Mitsubishi Motors in the years 1991 to 1999. Eventually priced out of the market due to inflation and woefully useless SUVs.

The VR-4 is a very impressive car, carrying the 3.0L DOHC V6 6G72 engine with twin Mitsubishi TD04 9b turbochargers and twin intercoolers making 300 (91-93) and 320 (94-99) horsepower straight from the factory. It has full-time all wheel drive and rear-wheel assisted steering at high speeds. The pre-1996 models had electrically adjustable suspensions, featuring a Tour mode for a smoother ride, and a Sport mode for laying the smack down at Autocrosses.
