Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X Final Edition Ain’t Got Nothing On the 311RS Spec Blew

Until the moment comes and Mitsubishi will retire the Lancer Evolution X later this year, the Japanese manufacturer didn’t let its rally-bred bruiser go out without a bang. Slated to arrive in June, the Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X Final Edition is bewitching.

Expected to boast with the bits and bobs we’ve been teased with by the EVO X Final Concept that debuted at the Tokyo Auto Salon, the last ever EVO X special edition will spawn a mere 2,000 examples, all of them expected to pack a 4B11T turbocharged four-banger churning out a whopping 473 HP. What about pricing?

Does it really matter anyway? It’s not available yet, but it’s a given it will cost you an arm and a leg to own one. That’s if you manage to pay a deposit on an example of this rarefied breed.

What can you do if you want more specialness than offered by the Evolution X Final Edition?

It’s simple. In the past, you had to ring Ryan Gates for a 311RS EVO X

The original run of the modded monster (white car pictured below) churned out 353 horsepower and up to 359 lb-ft (468 Nm) of torque. Only 11 such machines were made, each of them commanding a $49,000 sticker. Yup, you can’t buy one anymore, but Ryan has something better to soothe your fevered brow.

Say hello to the 500 WHP 311RS EVO X Spec Blew, displayed in all its glory at the Twin Cities Auto Show in Minneapolis. Priced at a not-so-expensive $54,999, this Mitsubishi Lancer is now available to order. The AMS Performance 750XP turbo kit is the main culprit for those 500 all-wheel drive horsepower.

Other highlight features that embellish EVO X Spec Blew come in the form of black-painted Volk Racing TE37 SL wheels, body-hugging Recaro bucket seats with tartan inserts, blue deep indigo paint and cabin trim, as well as a whole lot of carbon fiber bobs, including a dry carbon fiber hood. Last but not least, the JRZ suspension kit’s sportiness is complimented by an equally sporty Alcantara appointed dashboard.
