Mitsubishi unveiled the Sportback Concept back in 2005, and since then no one heard anything about it. Until today when the first official images of the Lancer Prototype S surfaced, the preview version of the five-doors version of the Lancer Ralliart. The Lancer Prototype S will make its debut in March at the Geneva Motor Show.
The new Lancer Ralliart reinforces the sporty identity of the Lancer lineup (Lancer, Lancer Ralliart and Lancer Evolution) with aggressive styling and driving performance that creates a unique product between the Lancer GTS 2.4 and the Lancer Evolution models. The Lancer Ralliart makes effective use of the Lancer’s rigid unibody and four-wheel independent suspension by mating this capable chassis to a turbocharged engine and all-wheel-drive.
Mitsubishi Motors is introducing the 2008 Lancer Evolution, the newest and most sophisticated version of the legendary high-performance model series that began 16 years ago. While remaining true to the core values that have made the Lancer Evolution synonymous with thrilling performance, the next-generation model offers all-around capability and user technology that distinguish the world’s best performance models.
Inside Line had the chance to get behind the wheel of the newly launched Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X and put it to some tests. What is their opinion about the new sedan you will see watching the video.
The Evo X will make it’s world debut at the Tokyo Motor Show later this month. It is powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder 16-valve DOHC MIVEC engine with an output of 295 hp and a peak torque of 300 lbs-ft.
Mitsubishi released the first informations about the Lancer Evolution X Group N, the WRC Rally version of the high performance 4WD sedan. The Evo X Group N will be used on the Japanese round of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).

Mitsubishi is working on two new component systems that are expected to feature in the new Lancer Evolution, due to be launched this autumn. The first one is called S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) and is an advanced vehicle dynamics control system that regulates drive torque at each wheel. The second one is called Twin Clutch SST (Sport Shift Transmission) and is an automated manual transmission that delivers slicker shifting through the gears while freeing the driver from the need to operate the clutch.
