Lancer Evolution X pics leaked

A Japanese brochure for the new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X was leaked recently, the car isnt supposed to be unveiled for another month at the Tokyo Motor Show. Exert from the article.

Quote:
Look for the new turbocharged 2.0-liter four to belt out a stout 325 horsepower, despite the brochure's Japanese-government-appeasing 280 PS (276 hp) statement, delivered to all four wheels via the so-called "SST" paddle-operated dual-clutch six-speed gearbox.














lol it looks pretty sweet. Wish i could read japanese.

Looks pretty ugly to me.

I hear it has less power and handles worse than the previous Evos, so I won't be going near it. I'll stick with the VIII

I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it.

Whoever designed and approved that front clip should have their nuts cut off.

I think I am turning japanese, I think I am turning japanese, i realy think so...

Cool cars. Will look better than the '08 WRX funky nose or not. Still for the money there are better cars and you could have 3 really nice bikes so...I will stay on 2 wheels thanks!

Whether you like the evo's or not, you have to admit they are sick cars.


Does anyone else notice that the entire rear clip on this car looks like the mazda 3 or 6?

Front end looks like an SRT-4, back end looks like a Mazda 3. Nothing special to me.

I'm really disappointed with both this new Evo (not that I was ever a big fan) and the '08 STi's (which I've always been a huge fan).

Both have gone very generic and boring in their styling. :yawn:
