2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart

The 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Ralliart isn't an Evo X. It's better. That's what I keep telling myself as I drive the back roads of the Detroit exurbs in Mitsubishi's latest boosted compact. Slotting between the regular FWD Lancer 2.4 GTS and the balls-out rally car Evo X, the Ralliart seeks to put Mitsubishi on the… » 7/09/08 10:00pm 7/09/08 10:00pm

Chicago Auto Show: 2009 Mitsubishi Galant, Three Varieties of Boring

In case you were wondering, Mitsubishi did bust out a trio of updated Galants on Thursday, and we were monumentally underwhelmed. The Galant Sport, Galant Sport V6, and the Galant Ralliart all took a bow. The cars are available with a mix and match of the 2.4 L 4 cyl MiVEC, 3.8 L V6, and 3.8L V6 equipped with MiVEC,… » 2/08/08 10:00am 2/08/08 10:00am

Mitsubishi Joining Sportback Crowd: Lancer Prototype S

We don't know if these images from World Car Fans are official sketches, but they look pretty darn certifiably real to us. The concept, rumored to be coming to the 2008 Geneva Motor Show, is supposedly a lightly disguised production version of the Euro Spec 5 door Lancer Ralliart.

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

Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Ralliart

The JDM watchers at Nihon Car spied the upcoming Mitsubishi Evo X in Ralliart trim. It was at Tokyo's "Motor Sport Japan 2007," a spectacular of the latest JDM hardware. Apparently Mitsubishi Staff on hand wouldn't (or couldn't) divulge any information about the in-house tuner. We'll likely know more about this modded… » 9/24/07 2:54pm 9/24/07 2:54pm

2009 Mitsubishi Lancer — Ralliart?

It looks like spy shooter Hans Lehmann ain't the only quick-shot in town, Brenda "12.1 Megapixel-Shooter" Priddy's also snagged herself some pictures of what appears to be a very high-tech looking 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer...umm...Ralliart edition?

No Hakone Baloney: Driving the Ralliart Version-R in Japan

We're not sure what manner of strings were pulled, but the boys at Nihon Car and Bike joined the Japanese press on a test drive of the new Mitsubishi Colt Ralliart Version-R in Japan's drift-happy Hakone region. The new Mitsu is a little car with a stiff chassis, a 154-hp MIVEC engine and an eye on the Honda Civic… » 6/16/06 8:09am 6/16/06 8:09am

Mitsubishi Colt Ralliart Version-R

Whether or not Mitsubishi abandons the US market, its Ralliart performance division will likely continue to produce versions of its cars for the world's hot-hatch-loving tuner kids.

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

Mitsubishi's Ralliart Street Raider Concept

Man, Davey's out at SEMA with the Mopars and the chicks and the Gibbons, and here we are regurgitating press packages like they were so much past-date yogurt. The least Mitsu can do is hire a decent photographer, and at least not let him touch a cocktail until all the work is done. Case in point: These pics of… » 11/03/05 10:00am 11/03/05 10:00am

Mitsubishi Ralliart Eclipse Unveiled

It's part Eclipse, part Evo and better looking than either of those stock models. It's Mitsubishi's latest concept tuned to within an inch of its life by in-house speed shop Ralliart.
