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!
Since Mitsubishi announced it would be discontinuing its Lancer Evolution line, fans of the model have been counting down the days until the Japanese carmaker releases the final edition of the performance car. Now, the wait is over. Mitsubishi has finally announced its Tokyo Auto Salon lineup and it includes the final edition 2015 Lancer Evolution X.
While Mitsubishi is calling this model the Lancer Evolution X Final Concept, we know this will be the car that enters production later this year. This edition will be offered in limited production numbers of only 2,000 to 2,500 units, but each of these are expected to pack a significant punch. A 2.0-liter turbocharged engine will churn out a massive 473 horsepower and come equipped with a HKS turbocharger from one of the best-known aftermarket brands in the world.
The Final Edition 2015 Lancer Evolution X is set to arrive in showrooms later in 2015. Check back to Larry Jay Mitsubishi in the future for updates on the final Lancer Evolution.
