Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X Ralliart

The 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X Ralliart was developed as a reinforcement of the Lancer lineup, boasting driving performance and aggressive styling that creates a unique product between the Lancer GTS 2.4 and the Lancer Evolution models. Mating the capable chassis to a turbocharged engine and an all-wheel-drive, the Lancer Ralliart efficiently uses the Lancer`s rigid unibody and four-wheel independent suspension. It is powered by the new 4B11 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC intercooled and turbocharged engine that produces 235 HP and it is mated to Mitsubishi`s efficient Twin Clutch-SST gearbox, thus giving the driver the possibility to execute paddle-actuated shifts and enhance the sporty nature. Mitsubishi`s Active Center Differential uses an electronically controlled multi-plate clutch center differential vectoring drive torque to the front and rear according to different driving conditions, resulting in the best combination of traction characteristics and steering response. The Lancer Ralliart exterior is defined by a more aggressively styled front bumper, rear bumper cover, dual outlet muffler and a lightweight aluminum, ducted hood that delivers cooling air to the turbocharger. The stylish interior places a great emphasis on vehicle control and function as well as easily accessible steering column mounted paddle shifters. Furthermore, features of the available equipment and options include Recaro seats, HID headlights, 650-watt Rockford Fosgate 9-speaker audio system, Sirius satellite radio, power sunroof, and a 30-gigabyte hard drive navigation system with digital music server.
