The Mitsubishi Eclipse (2G) is a sports coupé developed by Mitsubishi and Chrysler under the Diamond-Star Motors (DSM) joint venture. It was also sold as the Eagle Talon by Chrysler's short-lived Eagle brand.

The highest trim of the Eclipse was the GSX which was powered by a Lancer Evolution derived turbocharged engine and based upon an AWD chassis. The GS-T was a lower-cost alternative with FWD.

For the 1997 model year, the Eclipse received a refreshed exterior and interior design. In 1999, it was succeeded by the 3G model which was replaced by the 4G model in 2005.

Games

Motor City Online

The Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T Spyder appeared in Motor City Online near the shutdown of the game's servers on August 29th, 2003. It was fitted with a V8 engine and altered from front-wheel drive to rear-wheel drive.

Need for Speed: Underground

The 1999 Eclipse appears in Need for Speed: Underground, and is unlocked upon completing Underground Mode event 58 - "And then there was one".

Considering its performance statistics, the Eclipse GSX is a well rounded car with quick acceleration due to being AWD.

The game also features a special model with a Petey Pablo theme which can be unlocked upon collecting 698,000 style points for Quick Race. Todd, a member of Eddie's crew will swap his Mitsubishi Lancer ES for a 1999 Eclipse during later stages of Underground Mode. His car cannot be unlocked by the player.

Need for Speed: Underground 2

The 1999 Eclipse appears in Need for Speed: Underground 2, and is unlocked during stage 3 of the career mode upon completing URL race event 8.

It performs similarly to its counterpart in the first Underground. Compared to other cars unlocked during stage 3, the Eclipse shows rather mild performance statistics but becomes very useful with high level performance parts.

Need for Speed: Underground Rivals

Stub - This article section needs expanding with relevant information.

The Eclipse GSX appears in Need for Speed: Underground Rivals.

Need for Speed: Carbon

The 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a tier 2 tuner class car.

It appears as a red stock model as well as a green modified variant with a body kit and aftermarket wheels. Both cars cannot be used in career mode and are only available for Quick Race once the player completes their respective reward card, although players can drive the green model in a bronze tier Challenge Series event.

Both variations of the Mitsubishi Eclipse are featured with grippy handling, slow acceleration and low top speed, making them useful for most race events, but on straight sprints, it will struggle.

Need for Speed: ProStreet

The 1999 Mitsubishi Eclipse appears in Need for Speed: ProStreet as a tier 1 vehicle with a price of $18,000 and is already unlocked at the beginning of the game.

The 1999 Eclipse is one of the few starter cars with AWD players can choose from for the career mode. The Eclipse appears with traits that are typical for AWD cars including outstanding grip performance and quick acceleration.

The 1999 Eclipse is mainly suitable for Grip setups, as its top speed might be lacking in Speed Challenge events during later portions of the career mode.

Need for Speed: World

The Mitsubishi Eclipse GS-T was made available in Need for Speed: World as a tier 1 car on April 18, 2012. Since August 22, 2012, it had been featured as a D class car.

It is one of the fastest class C cars in the game. The Eclipse possessed good straight-line performance and an above average nitrous speed boost. Despite this, it is still capable of high-speed cornering. Top speed is 156 mph (251 km/h).

It is an effective vehicle in every game mode and can be turned into an effective class B car. It can be upgraded up to class A with ultra parts.

SpeedBoost3500


It is capable of hitting very high speeds and reaching those speeds very quickly due to its impressive acceleration. The handling of the GS-T is direct and could easily keep the car at a high speed through long corners. A draw back of the GS-T is that it suffered in slalom sections because of its front-biased steering. Top speed is 168mph (270km/h).

The body modifications were reminiscent of Underground Street Racing culture. A low body kit is fitted with the inclusion of a chin spoiler and brake cooling ducts though the front bumper. The Mitsubishi logo was removed from the bonnet of the GS-T and was instead fitted to an exposed radiator.

The headlights were replaced with carbon-fibre replicas and the bonnet had been replaced with a custom made fabrication with a transparent middle for a purposely exposed engine bay. The body kit is equipped with air vents along the sides, a large rear diffuser and a large rear spoiler.
