Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR special edition revealed. Costs £50,000Wed, 26 Mar 2014 00:00:00 -0700
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR special edition will cost £50k
The Mitsubishi Lance Evo X bit the dust in the UK in 2011 after the Yen’s strength made it impossible for Mitsubishi UK to import the Evo X and sell it at a price buyers could swallow. But the weakening Yen – and Mitsubishi’s 40th anniversary – sees Mitsubishi UK backtracking and delivering a limited run of special edition Evos for the UK – the Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR.
The Evolution X FQ-440 MR comes with 440bhp, a Janspeed exhaust, Mitsubishi’s SST gearbox, Janspeed intake and cooler piping kit, Motorsport spec high-flow injectors, Alcon brakes, lowered suspension and S-AWC 4WD, with exterior titivations including 18″ BBS alloys, Bi-xenon headlights, front fogs and silicone wiper blades.
The interior get a makeover too with leather Recaros, Fosgate Audio, leather steering wheel, SatNav, Bluetooth, Climate and Cruise.
The Evo X FQ-440 also comes with a data recorder that records all you could need – driving style, performance, diagnostics – with the data available to the owner and CCC. In fact, the warranty is dependent on the device so you’ll need to behave (to a degree).
Mitsubishi UK’s MD, Lance Bradley, 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!
Available only in Frost White, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR special edition will set you back £50,000
