    Ummm, I don’t think so. 74 or 78 Hp is not going to get you there. 135Kph yes, 135mph no. I’ve had mine in triple digit range a couple of times and about 115mph is about all I could wring out (CVT model).

    The manual mirage is spinning 4k rpm at only 80mph. Fastest I've had mine. I've read it goes about 115 which in itself is way too fast for a mirage. No chance it would go 135.

    185 km/h is approximately 115 mi/h, which is the same as what inuvik/Pryme has stated. Not bad for a cheap little economy car!

    I cannot for the life of me find a legit road test of a 2017+ Mirage or Mirage G4 with a 5MT showing 0-60. Does anyone know of a source?

    You’d probably have to hunt through Asian car reviews. Mitsubishi never supplies reviewers here in North America with the 5 speed manual. It’s always a CVT.

    0-60 = 10 sec, faster, but not much
    105 mph top speed!

    There are zillions of examples of cars from tbe past that people were thrilled to drive because they had enough power to be enjoyable. These modern day 800hp Corvettes and Mustangs are insane.

    The Ford GT40 in the movie Ford vs. Ferrari outputs roughly 475hp. The successor to the Le Mans crown was the Porsche 917, output 540-600hp. Top speed ~225 mph.

    That dude here with the turbo Mirage hasn't even begun to test the limits of the Mirage engine strength. I've said it before, I firmly believe the 1.2 is easily capable of >200hp turboed. Perhaps 300ho with serious mods and reduced life.
