Currently in its fourth generation, Mitsubishi will officially be ending production of the Eclipse later this year. To mark the occasion, the Japanese automaker has announced a final special edition for both the Coupe and Spyder. No replacement for the car has been planned beyond the 2012 model year, so the SE Special Edition is Mitsubishi's way of saying a final goodbye to their long-running sports car that's been in production since 1989.
All Eclipse trims will be available with the SE package that will include "SE" decals, black side mirrors, 18-inch dark finish alloy wheels, along with the standard features that are available on the GS Sport version of both the coupe and spyder. Other standard equipment includes leather seats with heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat, rearview camera, Bluetooth, heated side mirrors, and a 9-speaker, 650-watt Rockford Fosgate audio system with SIRIUS satellite radio. The coupe will also have a sunroof.
The SE will be available with two engine options: a naturally-aspirated 2.4-liter with 162 hp or a 3.8-liter V6 with 265 hp. The V6 is mated to a 5-speed Sportronic automatic transmission. Final pricing has not been announced.
