Spy Shots of the new Mitsubishi Lancer EX for China. It will debut in November on the Guangzhou Auto Show and launch on the Chinese car market in early 2017. It comes with the wild new Mitsubishi grille and interesting creases over the doors.
It is not entirely new. The platform is the same as under the current EX, engines will be the same too, and the basic body shape didn’t change either. So one could argue it is actually a very extensive facelift.
A beautiful black Mitsubishi 3000GT speedy car, Spotted in China in Tongzhou District in Beijing. The poor car was in a poor condition, dusty and dirty and in dire need of love. The black color is a respray and not a very good one, the original red paint peeped out everywhere.
Two wondrous white motorcars, Spotted in China near the Goldenport race track in Beijing. To the left a first generation Subaru Impreza GL, and to the right a racy Mitsubishi Lancer EVO VI. Both cars looked very dusty and dirty and somewhat abandoned, but they were in driveable slash raceable shape.
A wondrous white SouEast Lioncel sedan, Spotted in China in a snowy white Dongba in the far east of the capital Beijing. The good Lioncel was in a pretty good shape, smooth in paint and speedy in line, completely original down until the wheel covers, and happily without any rot or rust.
This is the Beijing-Jeep Mitsubishi Pajero Sport, Spotted in China on a parking lot just meters from my home in the east of the capital. The good Mitsu’ was in fine shape but in need of some urgent maintenance to fix the many small bruises, like those on the bumper. But we fear help will be hard to find, as the company that made this car does not exist anymore.
An immaculate Mitsubishi EVO IV, Spotted in China in the east of the capital Beijing. The speedy ‘Vo was in perfect shape, loved and well maintained. Everything was original up until the tiny black mirrors and the racy white five spoke alloys. Front lip almost hits the dusty road!
An extremely rare Mitsubishi Delica 4WD, Spotted in China in the Dongba area in east Beijing. The vehicle was a bit dusty but otherwise in a very good shape; paint was smooth, chrome was shiny, all parts were in place, and there wasn’t any rust in sight. Big bull bar was a popular period after factory option.
A fiery red Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX, Spotted in China at the Crab Island amusement park in Beijing. The mighty Mits’ looks speedy to the max with an extra large carbon front wing, darkened windows, a giant wing at the back, and slick-like tires with racy multispoke alloys.
A SouEast Freeca DN6440-III MPV, Spotted in China in the Dongba area in the far eastern regions of Beijing. The vehicle was in a reasonable shape; fading colors, battered and bruised basically all over the body, but no rust, no missing parts, and all original down to the sporty five-spoke alloys.
A maniac Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX, Spotted in China near the Goldenport race track in Beijing, standing close to a matte gold Toyota Supra. The lunatic Lancer is painted in fiery red and covered by a thick layer of dust, indicating it didn’t move for about a week; the dust in the capital is really that bad.
