The Mitsubishi Eclipse (4G) is a front-wheel-drive compact sports car that was produced between 2006 and 2012 as the fourth and final generation of the Mitsubishi Eclipse.

Overview Edit

For the 2009 model year, the 4G Mitsubishi Eclipse received a minor facelift. The front fascia was altered, with the fog lights changed and the triangle housing the Mitsubishi "three diamond" logo on the grille being removed. The rear fascia saw the "Eclipse" insignia change from an indent to raised silver letters. An option to add a dual exhaust and projector H.I.D. headlamps also became available.

The 3.8L SOHC 6G75 V6 engine for Eclipses produced from 2009 to 2012 has a power output of 263 hp (196 kW) and 262 ft·lb (355 N·m) of torque.

For 2011, the Mitsubishi Eclipse featured a blacked out roof, similar to the 1990 model. Mitsubishi also lowered the suspension of Eclipse by about half an inch to create a lower center of gravity. A rear backup camera and Bluetooth hands free calling to the Sun and sound package were included. In the GS trim, the car gets the same 18-inch wheels and blacked out front end as the GT "GS Sport" model.

Summary Edit

A8A Mitsubishi Eclipse price
The Mitsubishi Eclipse was added in the Elite Cars Update as a high-end Class C car. Beating the ED Design Torq, it was the best car in Class C at the time, but has since been surpassed by several cars.

The Eclipse has a starting rank of 1004, a MAX rank of 1366, and a MAX+PRO rank of 1563. The car receives +65 from Tuning Kits.

Performance Edit

The Eclipse has very high raw/total top speed, good nitro, excellent nitro efficiency, good acceleration, good handling, and good drifting. Overall, it can be described as a car with no weaknesses but no outstanding statistics, apart from speed. The Eclipse's well-rounded stats made it a very useful car to own before it was dethroned as the best car in Class C. Despite being lower-ranked, the Eclipse is actually faster than the Toyota Supra RZ (Mark IV), due to its better Tuning Kit bonus.

Like most high-end Class C cars, the Eclipse is able to become reasonably fast (~249 mph or ~400 km/h) at low ranks of around 1300-1400. In general, high-end Class C cars are very good compared to similar-ranked cars like mid Class B cars and low-end Class A cars, due to having lower raw top speed rank weightings and better Tuning Kit bonuses.

Usage (TLEs) Edit

When first released in May 2016, the Mitsubishi Eclipse became the best car for Class C TLEs due to its superiority over the Toyota Supra RZ (Mark IV) and ED Design Torq. While the Eclipse was purchasable only with tokens, it still dominated Class C leaderboards regardless of the track.

With the Multiplayer League Update, the Eclipse's competitive edge in events was greatly reduced. The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG Racing Series released in that update, can beat the Eclipse's lap records on most tracks and is an even better buy due to costing A8Credits . The only advantages the Eclipse would have over the CLA 45 are that it is not an Elite Car and its sharper drifting radius.

As of the Lunar New Year 2017 Update, the Eclipse's dominance in Class C was reduced to nothing with the introduction of the Renault Alpine Celebration. The Alpine has a very high rate of acceleration, superior handling capabilities and a higher maximum total speed of 260.9 mph (420.1 km/h), replacing the Eclipse on tracks where it once dominated (e.g. Sector 8). The Car Blueprints Update added the Sbarro Sparta, which has also replaced the CLA 45 AMG Racing Series and Alpine Celebration on most tracks.

Usage (Multiplayer) Edit

Originally, the Eclipse was rarely used for Multiplayer due to having much better use in TLEs and its A8Tokens cost. However, it is the high-end Class C car with the lowest starting rank (albeit, with one of the biggest raw top speed rank weightings as well), making it decent for Multiplayer.

In the past, the Eclipse was worthless for Multiplayer due to the above reasons; even with decent performance, its high price was a deterrent, and not worthwhile since the Eclipse is inferior to a small handful of overpowered cars, namely the Shelby Cobra 427 and Chevrolet 2016 Camaro SS. However, the Porsche Update saved the Eclipse, with the introduction of the Ignition Pack. The Ignition Pack costs around $2-2.50 US, and gives the Eclipse, Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe (also a A8Tokens car), and Audi S4. The pack circumvents the Eclipse's high costs and is actually somewhat viable as a starter's Multiplayer Car. The GLC Coupe is similarly useful as a starter's Multiplayer Car.

A Multiplayer tune of [0500,5050] is a good place to start. The Eclipse has similar performance to a [0505,5555] Range Rover Evoque Coupe HSE Dynamic, which has a similar rank (1314, speed = 244.4 mph or 393.0 km/h). With that tune giving a rank of 1308, the Eclipse runs at 244.1 mph (392.8 km/h). At that rank, it's slower than the GLC Coupe, Cobra, Camaro SS, BMW M2, and TVR Sagaris, but only by small margins. The Cobra, Camaro SS, and Sagaris also have poor drifting radiuses (the Camaro SS and GLC Coupe also have bad acceleration), so the Eclipse has a chance of beating them on twisty maps, like Sector 8 or Dubai.

Usage (Other) Edit

The Mitsubishi Eclipse is one of the Enduro Cars in the Enduro Double Down event for the BXR Bailey Blade GT1, the details of which can be seen here. The Eclipse is rewarded after collecting A8EnduroPoints 40,000, but if the player already has the car, A8Credits 125,000 is awarded instead.

Price Edit

The Mitsubishi Eclipse costs A8Tokens 2,300 to buy. Maxing it out costs A8Credits 1,216,525 or A8Tokens 7,270. Pro Kits require A8Credits 732,975, 10 of each Class C Parts card, 12 V6 Engines, 8 Initial Tech cards, 8 Early Tech cards, and 8 Mid-Tech cards.
