Mitsubishi RA Concept

Written by tonks on December 3, 2007

Mitsubishi RA ConceptThe Detroit Auto Show for 2008 is going to be an exciting show full of unusual and amazing concepts – some of which we have shown you already. Mitsubishi has released sketches of their new RA concept and we can all agree that it looks to be an amazing vehicle. Does it look familiar? It is similar to their first and second generation Eclipse – which leads us to believe that this concept may be the future Eclipse.

The Concept RA is powered by a turbocharged 2.2L clean diesel — with MIVEC continuously variable valve timing control — rated at 200 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. That power is put to the ground through the same Twin Clutch SST transmission found in the Lancer Evolution X. Unlike other clean diesels, Mitsubishi’s system doesn’t require the injection of Urea to meet strict U.S. emission standards.

It also comes with some other tech features like Active Steering and Active Damping controls – which will help drivers handle the vehicle with more ease. The conept drawing does a great job of peaking our interest – but we won’t know for sure if it will be a car worth having till we get to see it up close and personal and behind the wheel.
