Mitsubishi Prototype-X 4WD sport sedan

Mitsubishi Motors Corporation and Mitsubishi Motors North America Inc will unveil the Prototype X concept for a next-generation high-performance 4WD sport sedan at the 2007 North American International Auto Show (the Detroit Motor Show). The Prototype-X concept car on show is an advance development model for the new Lancer Evolution due to be launched in the 2007 fiscal year. Embodying Mitsubishi Motors’ trademark “fun to drive” qualities throughout, Prototype-X features styling based on the current Lancer but was developed to project a visibly higher performance image.

The 2007 NAIAS runs from January 7 to 21 at the Cobo Center in Detroit and opens to the general public on January 13.
