Hello Gents,
 
After months of research and patience, I have finally found "The One". A car I have been waiting to own for as long as I can remember... a 10th Generation Lancer. What I managed to get is a Lancer RalliArt. Since this particular model isn't available in Sri Lanka (to my knowledge), let me give a brief introduction to the car.
 
Mitsubishi introduced the 10th generation Lancer (Referred to as the Lancer EX in Sri Lanka) in 2008 and it was certainly a different Lancer when compared to previous models. From the hooded brow over the headlights that give it an aggressive look, to the matching rear end, it was a brand new look for the Lancer. Back in 2008 when Mitsubishi launched the 10th gen Lancer, they only really had two variants: The Lancer EX (GLX, GLS, GT) and then the mighty track monster Evolution X.
 
While the Lancer EX comes with engines ranging from 1.5L (4A91) through 2.0L (4J10 and 4B10) to 2.4L (4B12), the power of all these engines were in the range of 109 - 170 horsepower while the Evolution X has a 2.0L Turbo (4B11T) engine that outputs 276 horsepower (The FQ400 in the UK has a massive 403 hp!). That's a pretty big gap right there and Mitsubishi introduced the Lancer RalliArt in 2009 to bridge the gap.
 
The RalliArt also has a 4B11T 2.0L turbocharged engine - the same engine that comes in the Evo X, de-tuned. It outputs 237hp - that's 54 less than the Evo. It's basically ideal for day-to-day use as well as a drive along a twisty road or a track if you are keen. :) To put it into perspective, if the Evolution is compatible with the Subaru WRX STi, then the RalliArt is head to head with the WRX.
 
Throughout this thread I will try my best to log detailed information about the RalliArt (strengths, weaknesses, comparisons etc.) and also share information about the journey with my car. Hope this will be helpful to someone some day.
 
Before going into any more detail, here she is...
 
 

wowww man, she is so elegant,

Congrats :)

Congrats buddy... I guess if you need to have your dreams come true, you got to move to somewhere like Aus :)

I'm quite happy for you because I remember couple of years back, you had posted that your dream is to buy an EX. So I'm happy that it has materialized so soon....

Whoa, thanks for all the wishes guys!

Congrats ! She looks hot..but also please be safe :)

Thanks iRage and thank you for your concern. I sure will be safe. You're correct, I believe the Galant Fortis RalliArt and this are identical machines.

Already said this when you sent me the photos,lemme say it again... I'm so freakin happy i feel like i bought the car.

Congratulations bro! Please do keep us updated. Need lots & lots of photos!

Thanks bro, you were the first one to know in Sri Lanka. Even before my parents! :D

Nice ride mate! do a proper photo shoot of it when its sunny! :D

Thanks Magnum. Yeah, I should. Photography is not my talent, but I'll try my best. This was just as soon as I got the car and I saw an empty car park and entered just to snap some photos to send to my parents. :)

Hey davy, congrats on the new ride. Another one for the Mitsu club. :) Happy for you mate. She looks absolutely gorgeous. Looks to be in stock state. I already started imagining her in black shoes. :)

Thanks Sierra Charlie! The 2013 and newer RalliArt Lancers actually have the same rims but in gunmetal grey. Looks pretty nice. Was actually thinking of doing the same.

Congrats on the new purchase!

whats it like to have so much power under your foot? :smilie_liebe9:

Thank you! Well it feels awesome. The power together with the Twin Clutch SST gearbox is what makes the ride pretty special.

Congrats buddy... I guess if you need to have your dreams come true, you got to move to somewhere like Aus :)

Thanks Crosswind. I just never stopped wanting one among the vast variety of vehicles here. I actually found that very post a few days back and realized it was just two years ago. :)

For those who'd like to know more about the car, here is a Product Presentation Video:

Road test of the 2009 model by Motorweek:

Note the red multi info display between the gauges and the lack of an optional double din communication system in this particular car that they're reviewing.

An informal road test that I kind of enjoyed watching:
