Special attention was paid to increasing horsepower and torque, adding all-wheel drive capability for improved power in a variety of driving conditions while minimizing weight. To boost horsepower to an estimated 400 hp, a turbocharged 4G63 engine was borrowed from the Lancer Evolution and supplemented with a custom air intake and other HKS performance parts. The concept Eclipse’s rally prowess is enhanced with the all-wheel drive system currently available on the Endeavor and Lancer Evolution as well as a six-speed manual transmission. Lightweight carbon fiber was used extensively in the roof, hood, fascias and front fenders.

The custom exterior is enhanced by Hot Red Mica paint, specially formulated by PPG for this concept. The Eclipse Ralliart rides on 20-inch high-performance carbon fiber wheels with AVS Sport Yokohama tires. Interior enhancements include Recaro performance seats trimmed with leather and Alcanterra suede, four-point restraints, racing gauges and a Rockford Fosgate premium sound system.

I dont see the point of having 20" wheels thank GOD they are not chrome,
18" or 19" wheels would drive better and look a nicer, and please make sure you can get this car in BLACK without a spoiler, other than that i buy one over the evo X
this car looks like it can take more handling and abuse than a sedan.

ps . dont forget the H.I.D headlights in black.

Wow. This car completely overshadows and betters the Skyline GT-R concept, which was a styling disappointment.

I would have to finally get rid of my 2g.

I really wish Mitsu would just hurry up and produce this thing. Mitsu doesn’t seem to realize that producing a car like this will cause the entire company as a brand to be more recognized, more noticed, and more respected. If they could produce a plain jane version of this for around $29,000 and a loaded version for around $33,000, I would be just one of many people in line to buy this car. Wake up Mitsu, this is what people want!
