Mitsubishi's Street Raider Concept Debuts at the 2005 SEMA Show
Just think: When you buy that Raider Ralliart, you just may get free gas for a year…Oh. Well, maybe not, seeing as Mitsubishi just extended its notable free gas offer through this November on all 2006 models, and the Raider Ralliart is just a concept, somewhere between a model Ralliart rendering and a concept called the Street Raider -- both of which were shown at the 2005 SEMA Show. The Street Raider is a dream built to wow crowds and provide Mitsubishi execs with a hint as to whether "urban" is the way they should go with specialty truck design.They should. Take a Raider crew cab truck, shave the door handles, fuel filler door and other body parts, blend the front and rear bumpers with the body, add a custom grille, splash on some Pearl White Paint, and what you have is a truck that will surely be dubbed as the ultimate Mr. Clean machine, dropped two inches and wearing 22-inch tires. What you get is a true North American rendition of the Ralliart badge, and one sure to sell well here – and anywhere that allows for wide trucks and bodacious design.
