Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition Ordering Books Open in Japan – Photo Gallery

At the end of December 2014, Mitsubishi Motors revealed the Lancer Evolution Final Concept. In a nutshell, the black-painted machine previews the last-ever special edition of the EVO X because the tenth generation of the rally-bred sedan is slated to end production sometime this year.

As a brief reminder, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Concept is equipped with a 2.0 4B11T turbo four-banger with 473 horsepower, an extreme bump over the production model's 291 horsepower and 406 Nm (300 lb-ft) of torque. However, the actual 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition doesn't pack nigh on 500 ponies as the concept does. Boo and hiss.

The red-painted car in the adjacent photo gallery is the Japan-spec Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition, but the manufacturer is tight-lipped in terms of output. Through the wonders of Google Translate, we can tell you that the anniversary special edition Lancer EVO X "is equipped with a lightweight and high-performance 2.0L MIVEC turbo engine."

Other than this bit of intel, the Final Edition received sodium-filled exhaust valves for improved oomph at medium and high engine speeds. Over 300 HP it is then, but don't expect the concept's 473 horsepower.

Priced at 4,298,400 yen ($35,802 or €33,913 at current exchange rates), only 1,000 units of the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition will ever be made and the ordering books are already open in the Land of the Rising Sun.

Based on the 5MT GSR five-speed manual, the anniversary model will arrive at Japanese dealerships "around August this year." Furthermore, Mitsubishi tells that after all Final Edition vehicles will be manufactured, the Evolution X will kick the bucket.

Other than special "Final Edition" insignia and a plaque that tells you what number your car is, the last-ever special edition of the EVO X comes with Recaro seats, Brembo high-performance brakes, 18-inch BBS wheels joined by a dark chrome front grille, as well as black leather and red stitching on the inside.

In addition to these, Bilstein and Eibach take care of suspension duties while the visual front is further enhanced by a gloss black-painted front bumper bar and surrounds for the hood vents. Customers will be able to have their Final Editions in red, white, blue, black or gray with a white or black-painted roof panel.
