This was a long time coming, and I mean a very long time coming. After months of conjecture and wild internet guessing, Mitsubishi finally made the official announcement, revealing the 2008 Lancer Evolution X to the world. A collective sigh of relief was heard clear cross the globe, followed by a few droplets of drool.
The front end is distinctly more aggressive than the rather subdued rear, but — as expected — the overall design and lines draw heavily on the Concept X, as well as the garden variety Lancer which will serve as its everyday stablemate.
Under the hood of this S-AWC (Super All-Wheel Control) vehicle is a 200hp turbocharged 2.0L engine, paired with either a five-speed manual or a sequential manual gearbox. the S-AWC system is said to provide active steering and electronic yaw control. Now we just have to see how it performs on the track.
