Mitsubishi Motors Australia announced today the company’s Concept-Sportback will be unveiled at the Melbourne International Motor Show on Friday 2nd March 2007.
The Concept car which shares an amazingly similar front to the upcoming Mitsubishi Evo X was created by Mitsubishi Design Europe’s Exterior Chief Designer Omer Halilhodzic and his team, based in Germany.
Mitsubishi says that the concept is a
DNA exercise bridging heritage and vision, Japanese roots with global customer-base requirements, sporting spirit and clever practical solutions.
Admitedly it is a very good looking car, in the last year the concepts coming out of Mitsubishi Design Team headquarters have been very well received.
Mitsubishi says the Concept-Sportback’s expressive design ensures it stands out from the mainstream hatchback crowd and its dynamic performance is backed by Mitsubishi’s experience of over forty years of competitive racing and rallying at the highest levels.
“The Concept-Sportback’s aggressive good looks are an indication of the direction of Mitsubishi design, and with its long wheelbase and wide track, it is clear that the design emphasis of the Concept Sportback is on performance and flexibility.” MMAL President and CEO, Robert McEniry, announced the vehicle’s Australian debut.
No word yet as to whether or not this car will ever make it into full scale production, but thats is why its going to the Melbourne Motorshow to see how much interest it will generate. The concept car looks absolutely amazing, and one would hope it will create a big enough storm for Mitsubishi to warrant full scale production in a few years time.
