Mitsubishi’s S-AWC system is also featured on the concept, integrating an active center differential, stability control and anti-lock braking. The concept’s body is mounted on an aluminum space frame for low weight, while some panels — including the hood and fenders — are made from plastic composites.
We'll have more live shots of the Concept-RA, along with info on Mitsubishi's Lancer Ralliart, later today.
