SAMURAI RIDES: MIAMI ART BASEL 2015 WITH THE MITSUBISHI LANCER
When the Calendar flips to the month of the December the streets of Miami open up for the annual Art Basel Festival. Creatives of all types share their talents with the international crowd that converges on southern Florida and once again I had the pleasure to cover it. In addition to that my time was made even more pleasurable as I hit the streets with the 15′ Mitsubishi Lancer. With a clean Diamond white finish and black leather interior my time on the roads, streets and highways of Miami were more than enjoyable.
In stark contrast to my Art Basel experience last year, roughly 1/2 of my time in Miami was met with rain. Yes it was a wet one for much of the Art Basel experience. Fortunately, this gave me some real first hand experience with the handling and on road efficiency of Mitsubishi’s sporty sedan. Some of the worst rain would hit at the late night hours when I was on the road back to my lodgings. Thankfully the Lancer stayed steady through the torrential down pours with no sliding or slipping.
As luck would have it nature would relax just enough for me to enjoy the incredible artistic displays and festive environment that Art Basel transforms the Wynwood area into.
My overall travels in Florida took me from Margate to Fort Lauderdale then down to Wynwood and South Beach. Over the course of 4 days I needed just one stop at the gas station. The mileage I got out of the Lancer was beyond efficient. Couple that with how comfortable the ride is even for someone as tall as me and you’ve got a winner.
After the jump you can see more images of the Mitsubishi Lancer and get a run down of some of the specs you can look forward to with this ride.
Miami is always a fun time. Even with less than ideal weather my second time at Art Basel was quite enjoyable and the Lancer played a major role in me effectively navigating this Florida festival. I couldn’t imagine trying to get around to cover everything I had to using cabs or Uber. If any of you are in the market for a quality sedan I’d highly recommend that you give Mitsubishi’s Lancer a serious look.
