Mitsubishi Racing Lancer news - Eat my sand - 2008

It’s a good day for big cool stuff.
Earlier, we saw that giant Volvo riot
van/powerwasher thing, and now this: the
probably-somewhat-faster but equally excellent-looking Mitsubishi Racing

These are the first pictures we’ve seen of
Mitsu’s new cross-country rallier, which is shortly to make its race debut
ahead of next year’s Dakar rally.

Yep, that’s the Dakar rally in South
America. Confusing it may be, but Mitsubishi is out to win it, and reckons the
Racing Lancer is the car to do it.

It’s powered by a three-litre V6
turbodiesel - aye, diesel - with, we assume, enough torque to spin South
America upside-down.

It looks pretty awesome, no? When the
robots take over the cities and we’re all forced to live a nomadic,
hand-to-mouth existence, roaming the deserts and plains, we want one of these
for company.

Sorry, did we
say ‘when’? If. Obviously we meant ‘if’.
