Mysterious Ralliart Concept car will be revealed in January 2022

~Revealed Soon~ Currently Mitsubishi's seriousness in regenerating the Ralliart motorsport brand is increasingly visible. One proof is knowing the presence of a concept car that will be revealed next year.
The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV rally car which was modified under the Ralliart specifications. Thus, being an electric car does not mean that it cannot participate in motorsport events. (Picture from: Cinta Mobil)
It should be noted that Mitsubishi Motors Corporation is preparing to take part in the 2022 Tokyo Auto Salon event held from January 14-16, this exhibition will take place at Makuhari Messe, Chiba City.

In the company's press release, on Sunday, December 20, 2021, Mitsubishi Motors said it was preparing several concept cars to enliven the exhibition. This includes the Mitsubishi Ralliart concept car, which is said to have been born by combining Mitsubishi Motors' superior engineering skills and passion for challenges.

Unfortunately, the figure of the concept car is still a mystery. The curious public can only see a sliver of it through a photo that is thought to be visible on the back of the diffuser. The image shows the rear bumper of the car with a sporty diffuser emblazoned with the Ralliart logo. The diffuser is also equipped with fog lamps in the middle like a Formula 1 car. A thin red reflector is also visible, as well as a bumper with a fairly aggressive design. 

One thing that is odd is the absence of exhaust which makes us predict that this is a fully electric-powered car. Logically, if this car uses a conventional engine, Mitsubishi should have embedded an aggressive exhaust design that accentuates the sporty nature of this concept. A few months ago, rumors circulated that this car was based on the Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV which was modified under the Ralliart specifications.
Previously Mitsubishi raised the Ralliart brand as its cosmetic package in Pajero Sport and Triton models released in Thailand. (Picture from: Cinta Mobil)
Mitsubishi Motors says this concept car will also deliver a strong premium-feel and sense of presence. It also expresses the company's vision for the new face of Ralliart. The news of the presence of Ralliart itself has been heard since early 2021. Even last November Mitsubishi Thailand had presented a special edition Ralliart model for the Pajero Sport and Triton. Both models appear sportier than the regular model thanks to the addition of a number of rally-inspired accessories.
Reportedly, Mitsubishi Motors will also present the Kei EV concept car at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2022, and described it as the latest generation of fully electric kei car from the brand. (Picture from: Carmudi)
Besides, it is reported that at the Tokyo Auto Salon 2022 exhibition, Mitsubishi Motors will also present the Kei EV concept car. The Japanese automaker company explained, this model is the latest generation of fully electric kei car from the brand.
Mitsubishi Motors said that this car was designed by adhering to the aspects of safety, security, comfort and environmental friendliness. In addition, the Kei Car EV will also combine practical handling and size. However, the engine is quite powerful for a small car. Active safety features such as an advanced driver assistance system and connectivity features are also embedded in it. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | CARSCOOPS ]

If not under the Volkswagen Group banner, the Hunaudières might have made in production version

~One-Off~ Bentley is one of the British automotive manufacturers based in Crewe and is famous for its distinctive luxury cars with an exclusive impression, while the car that we will discuss was produced by the British marque has a more sporty impression and is the beginning of the sporty car designs that came after.
The Bentley Hunaudières' name pays homage to the famous straight of Circuit de la Sarthe where Sir Tim Birkin in a "Blower Bentley" overtook Rudolf Caracciola in a Mercedes-Benz SSK at 125 mph (201 km/h) with one wheel on the grass down the Hunaudières straight. (Picture from: Intersport.id)
Most people probably have never heard of and know the Bentley model called the Bentley Hunaudières Concept, because the mentioned model was never released into production version. What makes this car very special is its bold design.
The Bentley Hunaudières is a concept car built by Bentley for the 1999 Geneva Salon International de l'Auto. (Picture from: Pedal2TheMetal)
The name of Hunaudières itself comes from the name of famous straight of the Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans France, where the legendary Bentley racing driver of the 1920s, Sir Tim Birkin behind the wheel of the Bentley Blower raced at 201 kph with one wheel on the grass while overtaking Rudolf Carraciola who drove a Mercedes-Benz SSK at the 24 Heures du Mans (24 Hours of Le Mans).

Indeed, Bentley Hunaudières is the company special program to change its image, that those British auto marque can also built modern supercars, without changing its identity as a legendary aristocratic brand. The Bentley Hunaudières is a concept car made by the Crewe-based automaker in 1999, and exhibited at the Geneva Salon International de l'Auto (Geneva International Auto Show) in the same year.
The Bentley Hunaudières Concept is actually the work of Ferdinand Piëch, who is none other than the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, the founder of the Porsche brand. (Picture from: Pedal2TheMetal)
This concept car is actually the work of Ferdinand Piëch, who is none other than the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche, the founder of the Porsche brand. The Bentley Hunaudières was built using a modified Lamborghini Diablo VT chassis to be able to carry the Volkswagen's W16 engine coupled with 4-wheel drive technology.

This Volkswagen W16 engine has a capacity of 8,000 cc, naturally-aspirated which is capable of producing 623 hp at 6,000 rpm and 760 nm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Those numbers are more than enough to make the Hunaudières able to reach a top speed of 350 kph.

Unfortunately, the Bentley Hunaudières never continued even though many were enthusiastic and waiting for the production version.😢 Instead, the car was reborn in 2005 under the name of Bugatti Veyron with increased power up to 1,000 hp. How come? As the saying goes, nothing is impossible in this world. Especially if you see that currently the Bentley and Bugatti brands are under the banner of the Volkswagen Group, so something like that is likely could be happened.
To become a Veyron, in addition to changing its bodyworks, the 5-speed manual transmission of Bentley Hunaudières was also replaced by a 7-speed DSG automatic transmission unit, so that which was originally estimated to be able to penetrate the speed of 350 kph, but the Veyron overtouched those speed figures, as the result the speedometer needle stable in the numbers of 430 kph. Wow!

For your info, the Bentley Hunaudières is a secret car from the TOCA World Touring Cars game for Sony PlayStation and Game Boy Advance consoles, and the only racing game that has Hunaudières. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | ULTIMATECARPAGE ]

Is this one of the best modern American muscle cars?

~Two Nostrils~ The typical American muscle car that often looks dashing with the iconic firebird badge on its hood is indeed very popular among automotive enthusiasts in the world. However, among the many Firebird models made by Pontiac from 1967 to 2002, it turns out that there is a model that we think is very special while viewed from its appearance. Take a look the picture below!

So, have you ever seen the Firebird model like above before? That is Pontiac Trans Am Firebird WS6 described as a special package called the Trans Am to the Firebird models made in 1978. So it's natural if we didn't know of the existence of this model before, considering the model was produced in limited numbers by Pontiac  plus only a few privileged person had chance to own it.

It started when Pontiac made the sporty Firebird as the answer to the Ford Mustang and Chevrolet Camaro. The car combined an available big V-8 with aggressive, attention-grabbing styling and delivered it in a relatively practical four-passenger package. Like its pony-car competitors, the rear-wheel-drive Firebird offered tire-smoking power and impressive acceleration.

The F-body platform on which it and the Camaro were based, however, was arguably well past its prime by the early 2000s. 2002 was the final year of production for Pontiac's iconic but dated speed machine. The Firebird Trans Am was powered by GM's 5.7-liter LS1 V-8 engine. It was available as a hatchback coupe or a convertible. The WS6 package added additional enhancements to the engine and chassis.

The coupe measured 193.8 inches in length, 74.5 inches in width and 52.0 inches in height, with a 101.1-inch wheelbase. Except for being about half an inch taller with its top up, the convertible had matching exterior dimensions. The coupe's base curb weight was 3,499 lbs, while the convertible weighted-in at a slightly beefier 3,623 lbs. The coupe and the convertible were equal in terms of interior space.

The front seats offered 37.2 inches of headroom, 57.4 inches of shoulder room, 52.8 inches of hip room and 42.9 inches of legroom. Backseat passengers got a somewhat-cramped 35.3 inches of headroom, 55.8 inches of shoulder room, 44.4 inches of hip room and 28.9 inches of legroom. The coupe had space for 12.9 cubic feet of cargo with the rear seats up and a maximum of 33.7 cubic feet with them folded down. The convertible's trunk provided 7.6 cubic feet of storage space.

As quoted of Hotcars, the typical Pontiac' muscle car featured with WS6 package has unique appearance was initially introduced by GM to the market in 1987 as a standard feature on the Trans Am GTA and Firebird Formula, but took the WS6 package off the market in 1992 because not having an impact on its sales.

Surprisingly, in 1996 it was re-entered the market by giving a slight tweak to its uniquely made hood which had a Ram Air intake featuring two nostrils thought increasing in the engine power output from 285 horsepower to massive 305 horsepower at 5,200 rpm and 345 ft-lbs of torque at 4,400 rpm. Besides that it helped direct air for cooling its engine, along with a freer-flowing exhaust system. The package also added shocks, bushings, firmer springs, front and rear sway bars, and a firmer transmission mount.

The Firebird Trans Am WS6's performance capabilities were quite strong for its time. It could accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in five seconds flat. A quarter-mile run took just 13.5 seconds at 107.4 mph. While straight-line speed was the main attraction, the Pontiac also put out very decent braking and handling numbers. It could decelerate from 60 to 0 mph in 121 feet, which was about 10 feet better than the Camaro Z28, its platform-mate equivalent from Chevrolet. On a 200-foot skid pad, it could achieve a solid 0.84G of lateral acceleration. Finally, the Trans Am WS6 could race its way through a 600-foot slalom course at 64.6 mph.

While some people liked the interior's sweeping, curvaceous dashboard and red instrument lighting, others found it a bit cheap-looking. Either way, though, the premium WS6 model came with a strong selection of standard equipment. This included fog lamps, leather seating surfaces, a six-way power driver seat, a tilt-adjustable steering column, full power accessories, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, air conditioning and a six-speaker CD stereo. Options included a premium 10-speaker Monsoon audio system, and T-tops for coupes.

As mentioned before, the early Firebird WS6s are extremely rare cars as Pontiac didn’t record great sales run during those times. However, it has been estimated that about 2,500 of the 31,000 Firebirds sold in 1996 were equipped with the WS6 package. 
The sales of the WS6 improved in the next year to about 3,900 units. Notably, the final production year was one of the best in terms of sales with close to 15,000 units of the WS6 Trans Ams sold after selling just 7,000 the previous year.. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | HOTCARS | ITSTILLRUNS ]
