MITSUBISHI AIRTREK 2003 TURBO R

HERE IS A RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN THIS MITSUBISHI WHICH IS ONE OF ONLY 30 IN THE UK

HAD THIS CAR A WHILE NOW AND FANCY A CHANGE HERE IS A WRITE UP FROM THE NET. MITSUBISHI AIRTREK TURBO

The engine landing right into the outlander/airtrek chassis combined with the INVECS II gearbox which has been honed to refinement in the gallant vr-4. Combined with the awesome turbo pressure of the engine and the perfectly matched gear ratios of the automatic gearbox power is rated at 240 BHP and 344 nm of torque.

Basically the engine, gearbox and drive train comes from the EVO 7 GT-A (automatic version of the evo 7).

THE ENGINE

The 16 valve 4 cylinder intercooled (double overhead cam) and turbocharged engine lifted off the lancer evolution 7 series makes 240 BHP 5000 RPM and hefty 344 NM 2500 RPM of torque. For those who are not familiar with what torque is, this airtrek turbo with its huge torque can be able to pull a lorry weighing almost 3200 kg (3.2 tonnes) at a mere 1700 RPM. That is quite impressive for an engine powered by petrol.

It has been perfectly matched with the gearbox ratios to provide seeming less on road passing power and speed. If you even accidently stray over 2750 RPM the turbo takes a huge breath and the airtrek grows bull horns and gallops forward as the turbo spits all its venom into the engine for bigger explosions. Pulling hard all the way to 7500 RPM redlines when time to change.

With its huge amount of torque this vehicle will cruise at a city speed of 85 kph at a mere 1250 RPM. At this speed the engine is so silent that you can “hear your hair grow!”

This engine is not new to Kenya as it has been in production since 1988, and beside there are many other models that featured this engine namely the gallant, rvr and the legendary la

and far as reliability goes as long as you use the recommended engine oil and change it at regular interval this mill is going to last more than you definitely

In fact all the 4G63T engines I have come across all emit water droplets from the exhaust tip. Never rev the engine at a high rpm without letting the oil heat up.

THE GEARBOX

Referred to as the INVECS II gearbox, it is known to learn adaptive patterns as you drive the car, this technology being called “fuzzy logic”, therefore tailoring ever shift as smooth as possible.

In simpler words the gearbox learning your driving style and tries to mimic or adapt to it to make the shifting of the gear as smooth and swift as possible.

This particular gearbox has 5 forward gears and a reverse. It can be operated as a clutch less manual transmission either via the gear lever or the up (+) and down (-) buttons on each side of the steering wheel.

It can be left in drive for operation during jam and engaged if wanted into manual mode for one of those B road blasts, and the gearbox will be there right up with your demanding ramming home the gears as you want.

Left in drive the gearbox will shift up at 5400 RPM even with the acceleration pedal fully depressed.

Being a permanent four wheel drive vehicle the front and rear diffs are open with a locking central viscous diff, there for power distribution is roughly 50:50.

The chassis also does a good job of matching up to the immense g-forces that this vehicle can generate being quite responsive when it matter. Thumbs up for this factor to the airtrek turbo because not many SUVs in this category do sporty handling most of them are biased towards comfort and cruising.

Although due to the SUV layout of the airtrek turbo, the centre of gravity is high compared to a similarly powered saloon car however, do not worry there is no chance of this vehicle over turning.

Based on the outlander the front has been changed to give a more aggressive look. Check the photos and imagine having one of these in your rear view mirror flashing at you tell you to move the hell out. Upfront are HID lamps (optional) along with rally style fog lamps.

you will attract quite some attention on your local high street with its flared wheel arches.

It is a completely standard interior; normally it is at this factor where the Japanese cars fail but the airtrek surprisingly has a quite decent interior that tends to be appeal before you touch it, that cause it looks like leather from far. One nice touch is the analogue clock right in the middle enhances craftsmanship.

The gear level is dashboard mounted therefore making it within easier reach for the driver and extra room. The various gauges can be ordered with red on white or red on black colours. The front seats are semi bucket seats being able to recline fully. There are also plenty of cubby holds so that you can store away your belongings without worrying about them.

Another nice touch is the chrome on the door opening handles from the inside.

On this test vehicle which is the top spec unit it has a sun roof and a moon roof which is a good extra that makes driving an acoustic pleasure.

The airtrek/ outlander have been rated as a 4 star vehicle by the euro NCAP tests of crashing. This is quite a solid car as it also weighs in at 1560KG NET, therefore there is magnificent road holding and response from the chassis.

I THINK THAT SAYS MOST OF IT ITS MOTED TIL MAY 13 I HAVE SOME MOTS AND A FEW BILLS ALSO HAS A TRACKER CD PLAYER WITH USB. ITS A GREAT DRIVE PULLS LIKE A TRAIN DUMPVALVE GEAR CHANGE IS PRECISE AND SMOOTH NICE LENSO ALLOYS FULL LEATHER ENGINE IS NICE NO FUNNY NOISES STAINLESS STEEL EXHAUST SOUNDS GREAT TYRES GOOD VIEWING RECOMENDED AND WELCOME THIS IS A 2003 CAR SO DOES HAVE SOME MINNOR BATTLE SCARS AROUND IT
