Mitsubishi Mirage R5 with a Turbo 4G63 Inline-Four

Stefan Wiedenhofer competes in hillclimb racing with his R5 spec Mitsubishi Mirage. Under the hood sits a turbocharged 2.2 L 4G63 inline-four that makes 750 horsepower and 720 Nm of torque on a MoTeC M800 ECU tuned by Gabat. The power goes to all four wheels through a Drenth five-speed sequential transmission. The Mirage rides on a KW Competition 3-way adjustable suspension.
