Mitsubishi SSS

2000 Mitsubishi SSS

(Sleek sliding doors)

This concept car was created by the company’s 26-year-old lead designer, John Hull.

Powered by Mitsubishi’s 3.5-liter SOHC V-6, mounted transversely, the SSS was built on a front-wheel-drive platform with 4-wheel independent suspension.

Functional touches of the SSS include parallelogram-hinged doors that minimized the space needed to open side doors, high intensity discharge (HID) front lighting, LED lighting system in the rear, and a dual front bumper system (one low and a second one higher) that decreased the possibility of nosedive under a larger SUV in a rear-end collision.
