Mitsubishi introduces special edition Lancer

The final model in the current generation of Mitsubishi’s Lancer Evolution range has been unveiled by the manufacturer.
Only one version of the Evolution IX MR will be on sale, with a 366bhp, two-litre turbo engine.

Mitsubishi describes the vehicle as “the culmination of 14 years of continuous development” and states that the car “marks a fitting finale for the everyday supercar”.

Small changes have been implemented in the final incarnation of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution model, with modifications taking place on the car’s turbocharger and titanium aluminium alloy fins being introduced.

According to the automaker, the Lancer Evolution FQ-360 is the most affordable supercar on the road. It can achieve 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds but also offers practicality, Mitsubishi states.

These statistics compare to the Porsche 911 Carrera 4S, which costs almost twice as much and takes 0.9 seconds more to reach 60mph from a standstill.

The new Lancer Evolution can seat five passengers, has a boot capacity of 530 litres, air conditioning, electric windows and mirrors and remote central locking. It is covered by a three-year unlimited mileage warranty and a three-year pan-European recovery service.
