First shots of the Mitsubishi Concept RA

After the first sketches of the new Mitsubishi Concept RA were made public in November, now it came the time for an unofficial image of the vehicle to navigate all around the internet, giving birth to various kinds of rumors- well, here you have it- the only shot till now of the very much expected RA concept which is also said to be the indicator for the new generation of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Coupe.

With a turbocharged 2.2L clean diesel motor (with MIVEC continuously variable valve timing control) rated at 200 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, the car is considered to become one of the most successful models of Mitsubishi.Unlike other clean diesels, Mitsubishi's system doesn't require the injection of Urea to meet strict U.S. emission standards.The 200 hp are put to the ground through the same Twin Clutch SST transmission found in the Lancer Evolution X. The Concept-RA has also included several other technologies, such as Active Steering and Active Damping control to aid in the car's handling.
