Special edition Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR announced, priced from £50,000

Mitsubishi has unveiled a special edition Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR, celebrating the brand’s 40th anniversary in the UK.

The Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR is available exclusively in Frost White, featuring bi-xenon headlights and 18-inch forged BBS alloy wheels. Moving on to the interior, the model comes nicely equipped with Recaro leather seats, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, GPS navigation and a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system.

Under the bonnet is a 440bhp 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with 412 lb-ft of torque linked to a six-speed dual-clutch Sports Shift Transmission. 440bhp from a 2.0-litre turbo is very impressive and it was possible thanks to HKS turbocharger, high-flow fuel injectors and an optimized ECU.

Other highlights include Janspeed intake, an intercooler piping kit, a sports exhaust system, Alcon brakes, Eibach coil springs and a lowered suspension.

A nice feature that is also part of the package is the On-board diagnostic (OBD) system, recording details such as driving style, performance, vehicle diagnostics, and present location.

Pricing starts at £50,000 and just 40 cars will be available.
