Are you saying that the Mitsubishi is a better sports car?
One is an overweight and overequipped monster and one is a light and 
nimble and genneraly better balanced car.   Where is your point?
With relatively the same equipment i.e. wheels, tires, springs 
(the usual things cars are equipped with) etc. lighter is better don't you think?
