The engine has been uprated to produce more power with a custom ECU remapping, the figures have been bumped up to produce 446PS and 558Nm of torque. The transmission is a six-speed twin clutch sports shift transmission (SST) which transfers power to the four wheels through super-all wheel control (S-AWC) full time 4WD system. Eibach coil springs have been employed for both the front and rear suspensions. Handling has been optimised further by lowering the front suspension by 35mm and the rear by 30mm. Janspeed has provided the exhaust system, intake piping kit and tubular manifold.
As part of the vehicle warranty, the car will be fitted with a data recorder that will be connected to the on-board diagnostic system. This system will collect and record information such as present location, vehicle diagnostics, driving style and performance. All of this data will be available to the owner of the vehicle for later reference.
Lance Bradley, MD, Mitsubishi Motors UK, said, "Mitsubishi Motors in the UK are pleased to announce that as part of our celebrations of being 40 years in the UK, we will be producing 40 special edition Evo Xs. The Lancer Evolution has always been a halo model for Mitsubishi and this special edition is no exception. More powerful than ever before and with a very limited availability, it will be a 'must have' for all die-hard Evolution fans!"
