    with the addition of a supercharger they have taken the power from 180kw at the engine.

    to 230kw a the engine. thats pretty bad attempt in my books.

    that will aquait to about 170kw at the wheels.

    why do they even bother with such a pathetic attempts to rein in on the performance car market.

    Actually it's gone from 175kW to 230kW which is a 32% gain in peak power, and 343nM to 442nM which is a 22% gain in peak torque. Quite good numbers really.

    What are you talking about? How bout 400m in 14secs neat.
    How is the car going to utilize 300KW or whatever you think is "performance"? Is anyone going to pay 70-80K for it?
    Did you consider the torque the engine makes? That's what gives cars real performance and the Ralliart has it in spades.

    sorry if my point wasnt clear.

    Whenever MMAL creates a car for a niche market it only ever does a half ****ed effort.

    There cars are always * good * but not * great * they need to go all out to attract serious attention from any market. especially the performance market.

    why is anybody going to pay $50k for a 230kw front wheel drive large car. when for less money they can get a more powerful rear wheel drive car from holden or ford ( which i might add have a huge fan base BECAUSE theyve pushed the boundries time and time again )

    Look at it this way.

    Holden & Ford are the two oldest twins boys, always compeeting to be the best, always one up on each other.

    Mitsubishi are like the 3rd child. the young one. trying to play games with the older boys, but they always end up getting hurt.

    well this is a better attempt the ralliart magna, i think the price should be lower, if it looks different from the rest of the 380 line up, then its bound to get some buyers,
    hehehe going to join the blue force

    It wasnt impressive. The only thing the 380 TMR had that was excellent at the AIMS was the exceptionally attractive girls on the Mitsubishi stand.
