Say Hello – and Goodbye – to the Lancer Evolution Final Edition in America

Lancer Evolution Final Edition

The Final Edition is going fast, so get yours today!

The Lancer Evo’s story in the US is a generations-long saga of engineering triumph and stylistic innovations, but it has reached its final chapter.

 

Mitsubishi has recently announced the Lancer Evolution Final Edition in America, a vehicle that gives a proud goodbye to an automotive legend.

 

The Lancer Evolution Final Edition in America will feature 303 horsepower (an increase of 12 horsepower from the last model) and 305 lbs of torque. Our favorite modification for the Final Edition is probably the new Bilstein shocks wrapped with all-around Eibach springs and two-piece Brembo front-axle calipers – talk about a smooth ride.

 

The Final Edition will retain that classic Lancer look, with the exaggerated spoiler and athletic posture. It will feature dark-chrome Enkei wheels to match the dark-chrome grille setting and black aluminum roof. You can get the last Evo in four colors: Pearl White, Rally Red, Mercury Greay, or Octane Blue.

 

Only 1,600 Lancer Evo Final Editions will be sold at a starting cost of $37,995, so hurry on down to Larry Jay Mitsubishi and get yours before they’re gone!

Japan Opens Orders for Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition

2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution

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!
