Super Mirage Potential!

Mitsu's Mirage Turbo was one of the forgotten hot-hatch heroes of the late '80s/early '90s. A girl we wished we'd dated in college had one. We noticed the 135mph speedo and asked, "Will it do that?" A sensible Taurus with a Lotus-7-owning dad, she simply replied, "Yes." We later had a '90 Legend that we got up to an indicated 135 with more oomph to go, which led us to believe she wasn't lying about her college-commuter hatchback. And that was stock. From what we recall, it handled pretty well, too. Stack it in the small pile of FWD cars we've got a real fondness for. [TurboMirage]
