Mitsubishi intended to have the Eclipse go out in style by auctioning off the last example to roll off the line and sending all proceeds to the Japan Red Cross earthquake and tsunami relief fund. The problem: the automaker decided in the bottom of the ninth inning to resurrect the Eclipse. The almost-last Eclipse was customized by Mitsubishi Motors and features a unique Kalapana Black paint scheme (chosen by Mitsubishi followers on Facebook), leather interior trim, eye-catching 18-inch Dark Argent alloy wheels, a 650-watt Rockford-Fosgate® premium audio system with nine speakers and SIRIUS® satellite radio, hands-free Bluetooth® phone interface, High-Intensity Discharge (HID) headlamps and attractive “SE” exterior side graphics. It is also the only 2012 Eclipse SE model powered by the scintillating 265 horsepower 3.8-liter V-6 engine that is used exclusively by the 2012 Eclipse GT. With a number of manufacturers building sporty cars in the $20,000 to $25,000 range Mitsubishi wants to stay in the fray so expect a new take on the old Eclipse soon.
