Mitsubishi Eclipse ('Tooned)
Debut Series First Editions
Produced 2003 - 2009
Designer Eric Tscherne
Number 56394


The 'Tooned Mitsubishi Eclipse was one of the first "'Tooned" models debuting a year prior to the official release of the Hot 100. Along with 'tooned models like the Escalade, F-150, '41 Ford, '68 Mustang and Altezza, these models ushered in a controversial new style of Hot Wheels to the market. Mitsubishi Eclipse actually is a tuners car, not a JDM, and is based on real life second generation of 1996 Mitsubishi Eclipse, but with cartoonish style. 

It's known that Tscherne owned a similar model Eclipse which was replicated as a Hot Tunerz model. Tscherne's vehicle was a convertible.
