The R5 specification Mitsubishi features a 1620cc engine based on the Mitsubishi 4B11 engine from the Evolution X. It is connected to a five-speed Sadev transmission and four-wheel-drive system of the type homologated for use in the R5 category and fitted to all other R5 rally cars.

The car is with MacPherson suspension all round, mated to specially designed subframes and Öhlins dampers. The car is entirely built to FIA R5 Class specification.

Whilst it is difficult at this stage to make performance comparisons to R5 cars produced by other manufacturers, the specification of the Mitsubishi compares favourably in all areas.
