Instead they have created a car that destroys tarmac with such tenacity that you feel able to bend the laws of physics. Interstate highway testing temperatures were in the high-fifties. Rolling quietly out of the Mitsubishi carpark, the firm ride quality is apparent, but the Bilstein dampers and Eibach springs help to take the hard edge off remarkably well.
