LA Show: WORKS Speed Mitsubishi Lancer
WORKS, an automotive engineering, tuning, and racing specialist, pulled the curtains off the race-prepped SPEED World Challenge (SWC) Lancer at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The WORKS SWC Lancer will continue its efforts through the off-season with the goal of running a full racing schedule for the 2008 calendar year. Two-time (2005 and 2006) United States Touring Car champion David Brown will head the driving effort .
The race ready Lancer features several mods including front and rear WORKS/hlins coilovers, WORKS two-piece rotors featuring Brembo aluminum calipers, a WORKS racing clutch with `Spin' flywheel, and a fully built and balanced Mitsubishi four cylinder engine. Inside the car there is a WORKS `Throw' short shifter with `Grab' shift knob, WORKS carbon fiber panels, a single Recaro Pro Racer seat, Tilton pedal assembly, and a custom roll cage installed by Impact Engineering. Pending final homologation, the SWC Lancer will receive a few more racing and performance parts from WORKS and their partners before heading to tracks across the US and Canada.
