Relative of Bastard Challenger! Sapporo Turbo!

Illustration for article titled Relative of Bastard Challenger! Sapporo Turbo!

While the Plymouth Sapporo (and its Challenger twin) we received on these shores carried the G54B 2.6L Hemi between its framerails, the Mitsubishi/Colt Sapporo sold in other regions of the world — including the UK — featured the now-legendary 4G63 2.0 turbo unit. Think of it! Easy Evo swap! RWD! Toss in the limited-slip rear from a Starion and let the hoonage commence! If this isn't the living, breathing embodiment of SUPER POTENTIAL! well, well...well, we just don't know what is.

i think it would be easier to just hoon about in a Starion. It might be easier to find one that hasn't rotted into the ground.

although that looks like a lot of fun, it looks sort of like an eighties Maserati with down syndrome, like a slightly stoopid Biturbo.
