Mitsubishi at the 2007 Melbourne Motor Show

 

 

8th March, 2007

Mitsubishi Motors Australia Limited (MMAL) is exhibiting a sensational concept vehicle, the Concept Sportback and two prototype performance vehicles, the TMR 380 and TMR 220, along with a full range of passenger and commercial vehicles at the Melbourne Motor Show.

Mitsubishi Concept Sportback

The highlight of the MMAL stand, the Concept-Sportback, was designed by Mitsubishi Design Europe and is an exercise in bridging Mitsubishi's heritage and vision, overlaying stylish design with the company's sporting credentials.

According to MMAL's President and CEO, Robert McEniry, the Concept-Sportback's aggressive good looks are an indication of things to come for the Japanese brand.

"The Mitsubishi message is all about the "Revolution" taking place in our product range - and the Lancer Concept-Sportback has revolutionary styling and performance. Variants in the all-new Lancer range, due to be released in Australia over the next twelve months, take their styling cues from the Lancer Concept-Sportback - and they look great," Mr McEniry said.

Also on the Mitsubishi stand in Melbourne are two prototype vehicles from the renowned Team Mitsubishi Ralliart range.

Based on the award-winning 380 sedan, the TMR 380 features a Sprintex Supercharger, Koni suspension system, unique TMR performance tuned brakes, 19" five-spoke chrome wheels - and that's just on the outside! Inside, Recaro seats, sports trim and a top of the range Eclipse AVN6000 multi-media system complete the sporting theme. The TMR 380 turns what is normally a powerful and responsive sedan into a 230 kW, zero-to-one-hundred-in-six-seconds giant-killer.

Still in the Team Mitsubishi Ralliart stable, the TMR 220 takes the all-conquering Evo-IX to new levels. Targeted specifically at sprint or hill-climb enthusiasts, the TMR 220 upgrades the power, braking, vehicle balance and aerodynamics of the original vehicle, incorporating enhanced turbo performance, Pirelli PZero Roso tyres, unique open-faced 18" rims and an upgraded braking system.

But Mitsubishi is not just about outstanding sporting performance. The company's legendary four-wheel-drive range is also on display and includes all the members of the Mitsubishi "4WD Revolution."

The all-new Outlander, featuring new technology and innovative packaging, and its big brother, the new three- and five-door Pajero will join the hugely popular Triton line-up on the stand - and between these vehicles, just about every possible four-wheel drive application is reliably covered.

Rounding out the Mitsubishi display in Melbourne is the small-car Colt range, including a stylish Cabriolet and fire-breathing Ralliart variant.

"Following a series of new product launches, the Mitsubishi line-up in Australia offers a comprehensive range of attractive vehicles in all the right segments," Mr McEniry commented. "From performance cars to go-anywhere four-wheel drives - they're all part of the Mitsubishi Revolution."
