We don't know if these images from World Car Fans are official sketches, but they look pretty darn certifiably real to us.

Detroit Auto Show: 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart

The Ralliart is Mitsubishi's middle man between the Mitsubishi Lancer GTS and the Lancer EVO. The obvious rally-inspired Ralliart has a 2.0-liter, four cylinder engine sporting 235 horsepower, which is up 67 hp from the GTS, but not quite the 291 of the latest Evolution X has. It does feature Mitsubishi's dual-clutch… » 1/13/08 5:30pm 1/13/08 5:30pm

Chicago Premiere: Mitsubishi Galant Ralliart

Mitsubishi launched its latest Ralliart tuner model, built on the bones of its restyled 2007 Gallant mid-sized sedan. It's probably the most understated of the Ralliart concepts, looks-wise, and powered by the usual suspect — a MIVEC-tweaked 258-hp 3.8-liter V6 engine. A sport suspension and 18" alloys belie a… » 2/09/06 10:01am 2/09/06 10:01am
