Mitsubishi Galant VR4 AMG

AMG also produced this beauty, the Mitsubishi Debonair V 3000 Royal AMG





Checkout the velourtastic upholstery. There's a 15,000v static shock waiting right there...



The Galant was a proper tuned job with a breathed upon engine but I think the Debonair was just pimped up family saloon with the stock engine.

If we are into coach built hearses, here are some peculiarities I've come across over the years...

Tesla Model S anyone?


The last iteration of the E-class...

Same coachbuilder as your 5 series?


Economy class?

Are they not classed as quads? If so then yes car terms they are "death traps" but in quad terms the are safer. I'd rather my teenager be in one of these than on a moped.

There are more than 12, but it’s a pretty rare car. Country Tourer is the full name, I think
