The Mitsubishi Eclipse (2G) was 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.

Motor City OnlineEdit

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: UndergroundEdit

The 1999 Eclipse appears in Need for Speed: Underground and is unlocked upon completing Underground Mode event 58.

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 2Edit

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.

Stock 0-60 mph: 6.60 s 0-100 mph: 18.51 s Top Speed: 137.0 mph (220 km/h) Torque: 213.9 ft-lbs Power: 209.0 bhp
Fully Upgraded 0-60 mph: 3.09 s 0-100 mph: 9.14 s Top Speed: 216.0 mph (348 km/h) Torque: 402.2 ft-lbs Power: 467.0 bhp

Need for Speed: Underground RivalsEdit

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

Need for Speed: CarbonEdit

The 199 Mitsubishi Eclipse appears in Need for Speed: Carbon as a Tier 2 Tuner class car.

The Eclipse 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, decent acceleration and average top speed, making them useful for most race events.

Need for Speed: ProStreetEdit

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 a later portion of the career mode.

Need for Speed: WorldEdit

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

It was 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, the GS-T was still capable of high-speed cornering. Top speed was 156mph (251 km/h).

The Eclipse was an effective vehicle in every game mode and could be turned into an effective Class B car. It could be upgraded up to Class A with Ultra parts.

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

The body modifications were reminiscent of Underground Street Racing culture. A low body kit was 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 was equipped with air vents along the sides, a large rear diffuser and a large rear spoiler.

Elite (SpeedBoost)

The Elite style is a uniquely altered elite variation of the regular Eclipse GS-T. It costed SpeedBoost28500 and was released on April 17th, 2012.

It is fitted with tuned quality Gromlen performance parts, 2-star Skill Mods, and various aftermarket parts.
