The Eagle Talon is a sports coupe that was manufactured and sold between 1990 to 1999 by the Chrysler Corporation and Mitsubishi Motors of Japan in a joint corporate venture known as Diamond-Star Motors (DSM).
The Talon was sold under the Eagle marque, a brand developed by Chrysler to compete with Japanese imports in the late 1980s. It is a re-badged model of the Mitsubishi Eclipse GSX, Eclipse GS-T and Eclipse GS. The Talon was offered in numerous trims including; TSi, TSi AWD, DL and ES.
The second generation model is the only Eagle Talon featured in the Need for Speed series.
