Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart 240 HP Scooped Undisguised?
To answer our own question, we’d say that even though we can’t be 100 percent certain, the Lancer featured in the above picture sure looks like it’s the real deal. In a previous release back in mid-December, Mitsubishi had revealed that the upcoming Lancer Ralliart, which will compete head on with the Subaru Impreza WRX, will feature an aluminum bonnet panel, Recaro front seats, sports steering wheel with paddle shift and a Ralliart radiator grille. There’s no way of seeing the Recaro seats and the steering wheel, but the bonnet is straight off the EVO X while the radiator grille features the Ralliart logo
As we told you in our previous post on the Lancer Ralliart, Mitsubishi’s WRX hunter will be equipped with a detuned version the EVO X’s 2.0 litre Turbo Engine delivering 240 HP coupled with a 6-speed Twin Clutch - SST transmission and with a full-time 4WD system with Active Yaw Control and Active Centre Differential.
