(from LA Auto Show
Design Challenge) The Mitsubishi Roadster Konzept (MRK) is
a sporty hybrid compact that combines LA’s hip stylish image with a
sophisticated look. Environmentally-responsible, all four wheels are
equipped with Mitsubishi’s AWD in-wheel electric motor technology.
The 280 hp provided by the in-wheel motors combined with the 80 hp
rear-mounted engine brings an impressive 360 hp to zip around
congested freeways. The MRK has two front sport seats, plus rear
rumble seats, which allows for two rear passengers or extra cargo
space for Southern California adventures.
