Tipped by TMR to be the performance car ?bang for your bucks? buy of 2008, the Mitsubishi Ralliart was the standout feature at the Mitsubishi display.
The Ralliart features Mitsubishi?s 4B11 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC intercooled and turbocharged engine and if that sounds familiar then it should, as it?s the same engine you will find under the hood of its big brother, the Evo-X. In detuned Ralliart guise, the 4B11 produces an output of 177kW/240hp and 343Nm of torque which should ensure the Ralliart version of the Lancer is more than a match for the WRX.
In addition to borrowing the Evo X?s engine, the Ralliart also pinches its Twin Clutch-SST gearbox and gets its own full-time AWD driveline which features Mitsubishi?s Active Center Differential (ACD). The ACD unit employs an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch centre differential, vectoring drive torque to the front and rear according to different driving conditions?much like the Evo-X.
