The final Mitsubishi Eclipse will be auctioned off to help the Japanese Red Cross in earthquake relief.
After four generations, the Mitsubishi Eclipse is coming to an end. And now, the last Eclipse ever produced will be auctioned off in order to benefit the Japanese disaster relief. The final 2012 Eclipse Coupe SE with a 3.8-liter V6 was custom built by the automaker to commemorate the car's 22-year long run. This specific unit will be put on the auction block by Mecum on September 15th-18th at the St. Charles Auction. The proceeds will be donated to Japan's Red Cross earthquake relief.
The final Eclipse features a Kalapana Black paint scheme on the exterior, which was actually selected by Facebook fans of the Japanese automaker. Other features include SE lower side graphics, leather interior, 650W Rockford Fosgate 9-speaker audio system with Sirius XM radio, Bluetooth, HID headlights and is finished off with 18-inch Dark Argent wheels. The Eclipse has sold over 980,000 units since production began in 1989. Chances are, this special one-off Eclipse will become a highly collectible car in the years to come. Sadly, Mitsubishi is not planning a fifth-generation model.
