text size: A- A+
Unfortunately, there are only a few details available for the time being as the official website of the tuner only mentions the aforementioned tuning parts. However, the Japanese tuner says the kit will become available in the first months of 2009, despite the fact that preorders are already available on various retailers on the Internet.
Mitsubishi's newest Lancer Evolution saw daylight in 2005 under the form of a concept car displayed at the 39th edition of the Tokyo Motor Show. Codenamed Concept X, the prototype was upgraded and showcased in 2007 at the North American International Auto Show, this time using the Prototype-X name. Lancer Evolution X entered production in Autumn 2007 with the first models delivered in October 2007 in Japan.
In terms of technical specifications, the car comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine that produces at least 275 horsepower (the top output varies by market). It comes with a choice of two transmission systems, namely a 6-speed twin-clutch gearbox and a 5-speed manual unit, with Mitsubishi claiming the manual version is mostly chosen for racing purposes. All models, including Japanese and North American variants, come in several packages offering more or less advanced equipment levels.
