Sapporo is the capital of Hokkaido Prefecture.
Sapporo is a japanese lager brewery since 1886.
Sapporo is a pretty cool Mitsubishi.
Yeah right, this being a car blog, let’s just talk a bit of that end 70’s – early 80’s Sapporo. The Sapporo has lots of different names depending of the country and badge it was sold. Mitsubishi Sapporo, Mitsubishi Scorpion, Mitsubishi Lancer Lambda, Chrysler Sapporo, Plymouth Sapporo,…
It’s running lots of Mitsubishi Lancer parts but looks so amazing different. Most people will find it ugly because they just can’t see the potential of that car. Further down you’ll find 2 super fine examples of the GSR. But first a bit of history:
Introduced in Japan in December 1976, the Lambda was described not as a coupé but a “personal luxury car”, as Mitsubishi already had the Lancer-based Celeste coupé in its line-up.
Styling: The Sapporo featured frameless door glass, canopy vinyl roofs, velour interiors, “luxury” wheel covers with whitewall tires, and every possible power accessory inside.
Mechanical: The car was available with a variety of engines, including diesels, a number of normally aspirated gasoline engines, and one of the earliest applications of the long-running turbocharged 2.0 L 4G63T engine in the top GSR model which also featured independent rear suspension
Stuyizz 1979 Mitsubishi Sapporo 2.0 GSR
This example started out as a mostly standard silver gsr except a lowering job and some alloys
After some detrimming, Stew’s goal was to get the car really low, so there was no alternative to airbags! So here’s the new suspension and the car rockin some 8×14 ET-9 Konig rewinds

New season, new look @ ACE cafe in London:
To take it one step further, you’ll have to pass the gates of BOSO
