Geneva Show: Mitsubishi Lancer Prototype S
We just received these high-res official sketches (or at least they seem to be official) of the Mitsubishi Lancer Prototype S in our mail from a Carscoop reader who wishes to remain anonymous. According to our reader, the 5door Lancer prototype will make its debut at the Geneva Show on March 4. Unlike the Lancer Sportsback 5door concept that was shown in 2005, the Prototype S in the sketches is practically production ready.
While we don’t have any official information in our hands, from what we can tell, the specific prototype looks like its previewing the forthcoming Euro Spec 5door Lancer Ralliart. Like its American (4door) counterpart -click here, it too will come with a 240 PS 2.0 litre Turbo Engine coupled with a full-time 4WD system with Active Yaw Control and Active Centre Differential. We’ll try to dig out more information on the Lancer Prototype S later on the day. -
