Detroit motor show 2008 - Mitsubishi Concept-RA
14 January 2008
The Eclipse has previously only been sold in the USA, but its new 150bhp turbocharged 2.2-litre diesel engine meets emission regulations in the US and Europe. It has 199bhp, 310lb ft of pulling power and averages more than 40mpg.
The two-door, two-seat RA concept car coupe sits on 21-inch wheels and is built around a lightweight aluminium spaceframe, with bonnet, bumpers and other panels made from crash-resistant plastic.
It uses the advanced four-wheel drive system from the Evo X, which increases stability and grip.
