The Mitsubishi FTO is a front engined, front wheeled drive car produced by Mitsubishi from 1994 to 2000 exclusively for the Japanese domestic market. Such has been the demand for these cars that many were exported to the UK during a period of large 2nd hand imports by dealers. Second hand cars in Japan were all graded according to their condition and many excellent examples still survive here. Eventually the demand was so great that Mitsubishi UK actually supplied a few cars as new.
As with many Japanese market cars there were many different versions made with the vast majority being produced in 1994 and 1995. Over 36,000 FTOs were made with a large number coming to the UK.
The original FTO GS came with a 125bhp 4 cylinder engine, with the desirable GR (170bhp) and GPX (200bhp) made with a 2 litre V6 motor. The latter Mivec engine is highly regarded and has proved to be a reliable power plant.
At Keith Michaels we have been providing Mitsubishi FTO car insurance via our Mitsubishi insurance schemes for many years and are known to be industry leaders.
If your car is from 1997 or later then it is likely to be the face lifted version although these were made in quite small numbers. Many of these cars have also been modified in some way and we are very happy to cover these – please just tell us what you have had done.
Our experience and reputation for Japanese Import car insurance is really second to none – please do call us and speak to a broker who is knowledgeable about this model. We will know exactly what it is!

Honest guys. Very straight forward.
Can never fault these guys. Renewed for the 3rd year running as they've great price and amazing customer service!
Effortless process and wonderful service. Their tailored expat products take all the heat out of something that other insurance companies seem to want to over complicate. Cannot recommend highly enough.
I've been insuring with Keith Michaels for quite a few years now & have been very satisfied with the service. They have been very helpful & give a very personal service. Even after shopping around each time, (as we are all told to do!) Keith Michaels prices are still very competitive & hard to beat.
Excellent service, after returning to UK after a long period away, they took care of my insurance needs in a very professional and efficient manner as well as being very competitively priced.
Spoke to a helpful Chap called Matt Moody (great name by the way), who was anything but what his name suggests. He was patient with me and found me a really competitive quote. Would recommend!
A human voice answered the phone straight away and gave me a competitive quote quickly and efficiently, which I accepted. Confirmation processed quickly too. Efficient use of their time and mine.I am a new customer so time will tell whether I remain satisfied!
As an expat with a home in the UK it was great to find a broker who had insurance companies on the books who were willing to recognise No Claims gained in the EU
