Japan Opens Orders for Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition
Orders for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition have just been opened (and likely filled) in Japan.
The Final Edition is the last version of the Lancer Evolution X that Mitsubishi will build—ever, according to the manufacturer, so as you might expect it will be highly coveted.
It uses the normal edition’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, which produces 291 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque (unfortunately, the early rumors of 400 hp were unfounded).
New additions include sodium-filled exhaust valves, a black chrome radiator grille, gloss black trim on the lower front bumper and air vent bezels, black BBS wheels with high-performance tires, and a model-specific emblem on the trunk lid.
Only 1,000 units of the model will be made available in Japan. We’ll get our own Final Edition in the United States as well, but details aren’t to be expected before the summer. Until then, we’ll just have to wait patiently at Larry Jay Mitsubishi!
