The tenth generation of Mitsubishi's high-performance flagship model first rolled off the production lines in October 2007, a whopping fifteen years after it was initially introduced. Originally intended for the Japanese market only, the Evo's generous specifications and motorsports pedigree soon captured the hearts and minds of rev heads and racers around the world and an automotive legend was born.
Featuring a high-tech chassis, a brand new lightweight 2-liter, 4-cylinder turbocharged engine capable of producing 291 bhp upwards and an advanced, full-time four-wheel drive system, the Evolution X offers a range of different models which include either manual 5-speed or semi-automatic 6-speed twin-clutch SST transmissions.
Speculation remains as to whether the Evo X is to be the last in the icon's impressive dynasty after Mitsubishi seemed to suggest that the company wished to head in a more environmentally-friendly direction. If this car really does represent the end of the road for the mighty Evo, what better way to send it off than taking the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X around our tracks at insane speeds?
