For some weird reason, one of this car's sponsors is Omega Boost, another PD-developed game for the orig. PlayStation.

That's because the majority of the Mitsubishi racing cars in the Gran Turismo series are fictional. Mitsubishi basically stuck to rally & raid rather than circuit racing.

What you say doesn't make sense. This is a fictional racing car like other fictional racing cars in Gran Turismo 4, this one for example:

What Mitsubishi did or didn't regarding rally or track racing doesn't matter, and what you say is untrue especially if you are referring to the FTO, in fact it raced in JGTC and a real JGTC FTO is in Gran Turismo 2.

That "JGTC FTO" you're referring to that appeared on GT2 was the '99 Taeivon Trampio, a car that was driven in real life by Akihiko Nakaya (the car's number was #61; he, along w/ Ralph Firman, achieved 6th place in the GT300 ranking of the '99 JGTC season). Another FTO race car appeared on 2 under the LM Edition moniker.

This is a shot of all Mitsubishi circuit racers that have appeared in the GT series. Of the seven, six are fictional. That's a majority where I come from.
As far as Mitsubishi focusing on rallying? It's entirely relevant because it means there were few actual Mitsubishi race cars for PD to include in their games...hence the fictional substitutes.


You forgot about the Super Taikyu "Puma" Mitsubishi GTO in GT2.

I haven't played GT2 in a long time, but that looks like an RM upgrade rather than a standalone entry.

But between the FTO JGTC and This FTO Super Touring is in the spoiler.
