DYMAG Carbon Car Wheels
Mitsubishi Motors North America highlighted its fifth consecutive year as an exhibitor at the SEMA show Las Vegas with this spectacular RalliArt prepared Eclipse concept car fitted with Dymag Carbon Magnesium Wheels.
The best-selling import coupe for the past 15 years, Eclipse was redesigned for 2006 and Mitsubishi design engineers wasted no time giving Eclipse the Ralliart treatment.
Special attention was paid to increasing horsepower and torque, adding all-wheel drive capability for improved power in a variety of driving conditions while minimizing weight. To boost horsepower to an estimated 400 hp, a turbocharged 4G63 engine was borrowed from the Lancer Evolution and supplemented with a custom air intake and other HKS performance parts. The concept Eclipse's rally prowess is enhanced with the all-wheel drive system currently available on the Endeavor and Lancer Evolution as well as a six-speed manual transmission. Lightweight carbon fibre was used extensively in the roof, hood, fascias and front fenders.
