These days, AMG is most commonly known for the work it does as the official performance wing of Mercedes-Benz. Back in the day, though, the company had the freedom to tinker with rides outside the confines of the three-pointed star.
One such model is the Mitsubishi Galant—like the example you see here currently up for auction on carsandbids.com. It’s a 1992 Type 1 Mitsubishi Galant AMG, and the current highest bid for this baby now sits at $6,500 (around P327,000).
NOTE: This was sold for $17,000 (P870,000) on December 27, 2021.
Expect that figure to rise as the auction moves closer towards a close. Powering this old-school Japanese sedan is an AMG-tuned 2.0-liter four-cylinder 4G63 engine capable of 168hp and 191Nm paired with a five-speed manual transmission. While the listing is located in the US market, the unit itself is a right-hand example brought in from Japan two years ago.
As expected, AMG’s fingerprints are all over this thing. It gets an AMG bodykit, AMG seats up front, and the aforementioned engine. Other niceties include some snazzy wood interior trim, gray upholstery, and an Alpine speaker setup.
While the images here look almost pristine, there are some imperfections the seller notes. There’s some rust on one of the wiper arms, a little wear on the seat bolsters, and a bit of damage on the wood trim. The listing also highlights that the only modification is a Ralliart emblem placed on the grille.
Current mileage sits at a little over 111,500km. How much are you willing to part with so you can own a piece of AMG’s non-Mercedes past?
