Mitsubishi in Frankfurt

Mitsubishi exhibited a prototype of the Carisma which is prepared for the German Supertouring race series.
There was the European premier of the American made Eclipse.
Also two prototypes tried to grab the visitors' attention:

This car is the latest of the HSR sports car concept series. It has the new ICDIGE (in-cylinder direct injection gasoline engine).

The ICDIGE engine
Several other features: "A flip of the Multi-mode open top" switch transforms the HSR-V from a coupe into a targa top, and vice versa. There's a system which lowers the car and makes the seat slip backwards a bit when the driver enters in the car.

The Gaus hints on the next-generation Space Wagon. Let's hope it won't be this crude.
