The Mitsubishi Galant VR-4 was a limited edition automobile with 3009 imported from Japan to the United States with the chassis code E39A. The VR-4 hit the streets with numbered badges of 2000 in 1991 and 1000 in 1992. The mystery 9 were probably never sold or numbered. Another surprise is that the limited edition badge number has no correlation to the order of manufacture in a particular year.
The VR-4 ("Viscous Realtime 4") refers to the all wheel steering, an ability it shares with the more recognizeable 3000GT VR-4, along with all-wheel drive and turbocharged and intercooled induction. However, one thing the Galant VR-4 doesn't share is its conservative, 4-door sedan appearance. It's a sleeper. A wolf in sheep's clothing? No... It's a rabid werewolf with a powerplant capable of 600+ hp and 9.51s @ 148.87mph quarter mile runs...

Throughout the 1970s and '80s, Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) sought to improve its image through the established path of participation in motorsport . The Lancer 1600 GSR and Pajero/Montero/Shogun both achieved great success in rallying and Rally Raid events,   and eventually the company planned an attempt on the Group B class of the World Rally Championship with a four-wheel drive version of its Starion coupé. However, the class was outlawed following several fatal accidents in 1986 and '87, and Mitsubishi was forced to reassess its approach. It instead homologated the recently-introduced sixth generation of its Galant sedan for the Group A class, using the mechanical underpinnings from its aborted Starion prototype. Between 1988 and '92, it was campaigned by the official factory outfit, Mitsubishi Ralliart Europe , winning three events in the hands of Mikael Ericsson (1989 1000 Lakes Rally ),  Pentti Airikkala (1989 Lombard RAC Rally )  and Kenneth Eriksson (1991 Swedish Rally ).  It was also driven to outright victory in the Asia-Pacific Rally Championships by Kenjiro Shinozuka (198 and Ross Dunkerton (1991–92), and the American National GT Championship (1992) by Tim O'Neil . 
However, Mitsubishi — and their competitors — realised that the WRC cars of the '80s were simply too big and ungainly for the tight, winding roads of rally stages. Ford migrated the Sierra/Sapphire Cosworth to a smaller Escort -based bodyshell; Subaru developed the Impreza to succeed their Legacy ; and Toyota eventually replaced the Celica coupe with the Corolla . Mitsubishi, meanwhile, carried the VR-4's engine/transmission over to the new Lancer Evolution , bringing to an end the Galant's representation in MMC's motorsport efforts.

Group A regulations dictated a turbocharged engine of 2.0 L displacement and a four-wheel drive transmission. In order to satisfy the mandatory minimum sales requirements of 5,000 units, Mitsubishi made it available in North America , New Zealand , Australia , Japan & other Asian Pacific Rim territories, with 3,000 reaching the United States in 1991 and '92.  In road-going trim the four-door sedan produced up to 240 PS depending on market, giving the car a top speed of over 130 mph and allowing it to accelerate from 0-60 in 7.3 seconds, with a quarter mile elapsed time of 15.3 seconds. This car also featured power-assisted speed-sensitive four-wheel steering: the rear wheels steered in the same phase as the front wheels above 30 mph, up to 1.5 degrees.
A liftback version was also produced, known as the Eterna ZR-4 . This had some minor cosmetic differences, but mechanically was the same as the VR-4 sedan. The manual versi
