Mitsubishi vehicles are famous for their luxury and reliability, but did you know that they boast impressive acceleration times also? If you’re looking for a new car in the Philadelphia area that’s equal parts fast, reliable, and affordable, look no further than a new Mitsubishi from Springfield Mitsubishi! The fastest Mitsubishi of all time could reach 60 miles an hour in just over 3 seconds, and a 1995 Mitsubishi Eclipse was featured in 2001’s The Fast and the Furious. In the guide below, we’ll go over the top ten fastest Mitsubishi models ever, alongside the engine specs and 0-60 acceleration times of the six models in the current Mitsubishi lineup.
