North American International Auto Show (NAIAS)

Mitsubishi Concept-RA unveiled at the 2008 Detroit auto show.

We’ve seen all-whee drive and turbo before from Mitsubishi, but to bring in a turbodiesel with direct injection with variable valve timing and all-wheel drive is a bold move for Mitsubishi.

The RA is for Ralliart, of course, and anyone that knows Mitsubishi is familiar with their Lancer Evo. Expect to see an all-wheel-drive Lancer Evo SEDAN on the road within a year.
