Mitsubishi Says Goodbye To The Evo With This Japan-Exclusive Final EditionAuto News
The tenth-generation Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution has been around for a very, very long time. Since 2007 to be exact. However, it is time to say goodbye to the Mitsubishi Evo X and all of its previous nine generations with this commemorative swansong, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition.
Based on the Mitsubishi Evo GSR, the Final Edition is available with only a five-speed manual gearbox. It is mated to a 2.0-litre MIVEC turbocharged engine but Mitsubishi won’t disclose just how much power it produces. They can however say that the turbo mill will see the addition of sodium-filled exhaust valves that improve output at medium and high engine speeds.
Elsewhere, the Final Edition will be fitted with 18-inch BBS wheels wrapped in Yokohama ADVAN 245/40 series tyres, Bilstein and Eibach suspension components, and Brembo two-piece ventilated brakes. Five body colours are offered – red, white, gray, black, and blue.
Inside, the cabin has Recaro bucket seats while the steering wheel, handbrake, shifter knob, and console lid will all be black leather with red contrast stitching. ‘Final Edition’ badging can be found around the vehicle as well including a numbered dash plaque. Numbered because there will only be 1,000 examples of this special edition Mitsubishi Evo.
Mitsubishi Japan has begun taking orders of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition. The asking price? 4,298,400 yen (with Japan taxes) or RM132,860 following a direct currency conversion.
