2009 lancer ralliart



This car is rumored to have the same engine as the new evo but tuned down a bit to 230-240 h.p. It will have All wheel drive, -5-speed manual gearbox or Twin Clutch SST available, Recaro front seats. The car is also rumored to start at around $25,000 and is going to compete with the impreza WRX. So if you cant afford the base $34,000 price tag on the evo or the $39000 price tag on the evo MR. this might be an acceptable compromise. Plus i dont see the point of buying an evo for $9,000 more when you can probably get 70 more hp out of the ralliart for less.

Ooooh...shiny...

It looks so R34-ish in the front.

I myself could never choose between an STi and Evo. There are just two many other cars out there to be bickering between those two.

Sure it looks sick, has an aggressive front end, and aggressive rally styling

or you could get this "corolla"




It looks sick, and im glad Mitsu is offering a lower price performance lancer, especcially with awd. They picked the perfect year to compete against the wrx now that the wrx has gone soft.

hopefully that is the Ralliart... guess we'll find out in a few days at the Detroit auto show! I wouldn't mind the GTS Lancer as a daily driver... but this is even better.

I can't wait for the detroit auto show. So many cars are going to finally be unvield, like the dodge challanger...and I believe the camaro and the next mustang are suppose to be unvieled too. Of course they're will also be a ton of other cars. 2008 is a great and very exciting car year.

The Ralliart will have the EVO IX AWD system, 5sp manual only.

The EVO GSR has 300hp, and the newer AWD system, and optional dual clutch transmission (not in production yet though, it has some issue with it).
