R5 specification Mitsubishi gets facelift

2 September 2016

Manufacturers of the R5 specification Mitsubishi, Mpart AB of Örebro in Sweden have revealed a facelift update for the car.

The main changes include new front and rear sections of the bodywork that are in keeping with the 2016 design for the standard production Mirage and Space Star models.

In addition to the new panels, Mpart AB has taken the opportunity to carry out a series other small updates and refinements around the car. Head of the Mitsubishi R5 project Tomas Weng explains that while the intrinsic shell remains the same, the new additions will make a difference:

“The new panels replicate the 2016 updates that have appeared on the road-going version of the car. Because of the wider grille aperture and revised design, cooling efficiency and airflow around the car is improved. The updates are all part of ensuring the car remains competitive in its class and reflects the aesthetic changes that have been introduced by the manufacturer.”
