Today's Autotrader find is a rare 1998 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR-4. What makes it even more unique is the fact that this one has traveled just 8,995 miles since it was sold new, and therefore it's likely one of the most well-kept 3000GTs left in existence.

The VR-4 was the top-spec 3000GT throughout the model's 8-year sales run in the United States, which lasted from 1991 through 1999. Under the hood is a twin-turbo V6 that made 296 horsepower from 1991 through 1998, and 320 for 1999. While lesser 3000GTs were front-wheel-drive -- making them a bit of an oddity among the other Japanese sports cars of the 1990s, which were all rear-wheel-drive -- the VR-4 featured an all-wheel-drive system that sent power to all four wheels. Early models from the beginning of the decade even featured 4-wheel steering, a tunable exhaust, active aerodynamics and an electronically controlled suspension, but most of these features were phased out by later model years in the interest of simplification.

While the 1999 3000GT VR-4 is the rarest of the bunch, with just 287 being sold in the US market before Mitsubishi discontinued the 3000GT, a 1998 model with so few miles on the odometer is likely even rarer.

This one is located at a dealership in West Chester, PA. While it looks to be flawless inside and out, the asking price of $49,900 seems a bit steep given that the Mitsubishi 3000GT hasn't quite experienced the same resurgence in popularity we've seen recently with Toyota Supra and Acura NSX models from the same era. But then again, it's very possible that this is the cleanest, lowest-mileage 3000GT VR-4 left, and it's hard to put a price tag on exclusivity. Find a Mitsubishi 3000GT for sale
