While Mitsubishi were giving us the Lancer & Mirage in poxy FWD 1.5 and 1.8 litre versions, the ones we missed out on were the stove hot Asti RX(lancer) and Cyborg (mirage) Z and ZR's. These were the same shape as the Aus delivered cars but were powered by the 4G92 4cyl MIVEC engines producing 129kw at 7500 rpm.
They look the same as our Lancer & Mirage, but check out the factory Recaro's ...
I'll get my hands on a CE Mirage Cyborg one day........4WD Hatchback with a 4G63 (stuff the 1.6L mivec) will be fun!
and you're right JMO, evo's 1-5 weren't sold here and you still cant import them, this is partly due to the CC GSR's which were the Australian equivilant. Evo's 6,6.5,7, and 8 can be imported though, as they were only sold here in restricted numbers. The way prices are going, wouldn't be suprised to see that evo 7's will be cheaper than evo 3's in oz in a while.
hey team here is a pic of me 88 ZR4 which i owned in NZ, dont know if you guys got them here in oz, basically had te 4g63 engine etc etc same as the 88 VR4 but with a back hatch...........anything else to add guys? oh and of course it was a jap import
Hey Ben, the engine from those Debonairs was something to shed tears over though!
DOHC 24v 6G74 3.5l, 198kW around 360Nm torque stock, more power than a ralliart! and that's just the run of the mill mitsu luxury car tune too, so it has heaps of potential. I've actually got one, it's in my old man's garage. They bolt in to TR magna's that had the V6 stock. That was going to be my next conversion (told you guys I was conversion junkie lol)
