You can see with the real life photos, that this is still the Lancer. Thanks for the post. I remember seeing on wikipedia that the Lancer is still being sold elsewhere in the world. There is a 2012 Lancer for sale nearby my house kinda. Black with a 5 speed manual and low KMs. I wonder if the Lancer would have been a better buy than my Mirage looking back. The base lancer manual then was about $2,500 more than my 2014 Mirage I still own now.

Here is a link to the pricing brochures for a rally-ready Mirage. They have some pricing broken down by component/accessory. Would love to see the stand-alone price of that crazy rear wing.
Updated, widened body ready for Evo components is ~$20K. Ready to run car starts at ~$36K. Just slightly more expensive than our base models, lol.

I found the German accessories brochure while looking around for some parts today. They have tons of options for interior/exterior trim. Much more than anywhere else.
It's worth pointing out that in that brochure there is also a set of spring listed, with "25mm" mentioned. I can't read what it actually says (don't speak German), but maybe it's a set of OEM lowered springs? I can't imagine how they would be 25mm TALLER (the car already rides so high to begin with).
The name of the trim that looked like a mini-SUV was, unsurprisingly, the Space Star Cross:
Okay, that German "brochure" really gets me going!
I saw the "railings" which are on the roof, and then you just attach crossbeams to them. How do the railing attach. Can I order them anywhere and have them shipped to the US?
Also, I saw the cargo area sub-floor organizer thing a while ago on a different thread on this forum and still lust for it...
I own the OEM roof rack for the Mirage, and I can say they are actually pretty awesome. You don't have to drill into the car anywhere to put them on, and they pop on and off in a few minutes with no tools required. Can recommend.
The cargo organizer is a HUGE deal as the car doesn't really come with any "hidden" storage spaces. I wish you the best of luck finding it for a reasonable price here in the States, though. My local Mitsubishi dealer wanted about $570 (before tax) to import it from Mitsubishi Japan. I really wanted the storage space, though, so I looked around a lot and ended up finding a parts place in Latvia(!) that sold it to me for $330 including shipping. I only did that recently, so I will post back here if it actually ends up being legit. I hope so...
