The Mitsubishi Racing Lancer (code-named MRX09) is a cross-country rally car developed by Mitsubishi Motors for competing in 2009 Dakar rally.[1] "MRX09" stands for Mitsubishi Rally X-Country.[1] The car was built to the FIA's Group T1 rules, and competed in the 2009 Dakar Rally.[1] It has a tubular steel frame with carbon fiber bodywork. Unlike previous Mitsubishi cross-country rally cars, the Racing Lancer's bodywork resembles the Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback instead of the Mitsubishi Pajero.[1][2]
