THAT’S FINAL OVER AND OUT FOR THE EVO BUT WE GIVE IT ONE MORE CRACK
THERE will be a tear in the eye of many performance car enthusiasts at the demise of Mitsubishi’s Evolution Lancer.
It’s been around for nearly 25 years and has won a legion of fans.
This status was partly due to the exploits of one Tommi Makinen who took an Evo to the pinnacle of world championship rallying in the late 1990s.
The Final Edition Evo 10 is available now, with 150 units only up for grabs at a price of $53,700.
SPECIFICATION includes a swag of premium components from highly regarded suppliers/manufacturers – BBS 18-inch forged alloy wheels, Brembo brakes, Bilstein dampers, Eibach springs and Rockford Fosgate audio to name a few
It’s essentially an Evo 10 with the optional Performance Pack thrown in for an extra 1000 bucks.
Our version of the Final Edition has more power – the most ever in an Evo, rated at 226kW/414Nm arrived at through better gas flow through the engine and a recalibrated engine computer. It has a five-speed manual only.
The engine remains mostly unchanged at a 2.0-litre turbo four cylinder with MIVEC variable
