2015 Mitsubishi Eclipse R/SD Concept is a Realistic-Looking Design Study [w/Video]

| |

Any way you look at it, Mitsubishi has been on a downward spiral for years now (remember this comment?) and things aren't looking too bright for the sixth biggest Japanese automaker and the sixteenth biggest in the world based on production numbers.

While the company now believes that its future lies in SUVs, crossovers and cheap transportation modes like the Mirage hatch, it wasn't always like that; besides the legendary Lancer EVO series, once upon a time, Mitsubishi also did coupes like the 3000GT/GTO, FTO and the Eclipse.

The latter inspired car modeler Steel Blake from the far away land of Kyrgyzstan in central Asia along with the help of Zhikharev Eduard and Mike Kinikhin to create a rather realistic-looking concept model dubbed the 2015 Mitsubishi Eclipse R/SD.

Blake took the last, fourth generation of the series (produced from 2006 to 2011) as a canvas for the study.

While there are no coupes in Mitsubishi's immediate future, it would be interesting to hear your thoughts about Blake's concept in the comments.

Designer: Steel Blake , Thanks to Autofilou for the heads up!
