    anyone know anything about this?

    looks like they dropped the 4G63 from the EVO in there, along with what appears to be an HKS header and what i can only assume holds an HKS turbo and other goodies

    Shit is pretty badass looking too...minus the stock eclipse headlights that are just a little too friendly looking for my tastes

    Problem is that if it's still 3500lbs and FWD , it's mostly a waste



    LAS VEGAS — Mitsubishi Motors is looking to secure its place among the top brands at the 2005 SEMA show with seven vehicles, including this Eclipse Ralliart concept to be unveiled Tuesday.

    Company officials have been working to keep details of the vehicle under wraps until the 1 p.m. debut at the show, but did say the car will come with a high-performance drivetrain along with a killer exterior design forged at the company's design studio in Cypress, California.

    Other vehicles at the show will include two versions of the 2006 Raider, including an off-road rally version as well as a street version of the Dodge Dakota-based pickup.

    Not that bad. It would be cool to see that go into production with a redone bumper, exhaust tips that aren't ugly, and a little lighter than what it is right now.

    very interesting

    Mitsubishi’s Cypress, Calif. design center conceived the Eclipse Ralliart to showcase the new coupe’s performance potential.

    How does this showcase the car's performance potential when you have a completely different engine and drivetrain in it? This SEMA one-off doesn't prove shit about this new eclipse, other than you can make it look nicer with $10,000 in cosmetic mods. And another $10,000 swapping an EVO motor and tranny into it.

    All this shows is how much effort you have to put into this newest eclipse to make it into a desirable sports car....

    damn

    it is just a concept. but i guess it depends on how easy it was to get drivetrain in. if the eclipse and lancer are based on the same platform then anythings possible right?

    either way, it still is a really nice car.

    my guess its going to be lighter since its lacking back seats. but who am i to say, still looks good. red97gst is right in saying the headlights are too friendly looking. give it a slightly more agressive front end and i'd like it a hell of a lot more. if they produce it, i could see it being just as expencive as an evo. you'll just see people buying each as to what kind of platform they like i.e. coupe or sedan.

    The 4G63 came in the Eclipse before the Evo.

    Yes, the 4G63 was first used in the eclipse here in '89, but the motor in that car above is the newer 4G63 design that comes out of the EVO...

    Do u guys think Mitsu will ever use the 4G63 in another vehicle here? Not to knock the EVO, but it would be nice to buy a car with that motor that actually looks liek a sports car again... instead of having to just dream that the above eclipse were to actually exist...

    or they need to stop fuckin around and put out a new EVO design that brings back the big fender flares

    I hate the new eclipse i think its ugly as hell. But what they did to this thing actually made it appeal to me.
