Mitsubishi is preparing to unveil a new concept at the 2008 Detroit Auto Show in January, the Concept-RA. It will be powered by a high performance diesel engine and from the photos it seems to have a great futuristic design.

The Concept-RA will have a lot of features that improve driving sensations, like the S-AWC ( Super All Wheel Control ) vehicle dynamics control system driveline and a Twin Clutch SST automated manual transmission. The S-AWC technology managed a lot of systems to increase the control over drive torque and braking, along with upgraded traction, stability and cornering. Some of the systems used are Active Steering, Active Damping, AYC, Sport ABS, ACD and ASC.
