Only 150 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition will be on sale in Australia
Mitsubishi confirms the Lancer Evolution Final Edition will be on sale in Australia with a limited number of 150 turbo-sedans, which will be built together with 1000 pieces for Japan. Still envy it! Now, I say Ausies got lucky.
The Australian version will be the same model which will be as the Japan version, featuring a 2-liter MIVEC turbo engine with sodium-filled exhaust valves kicking 290PS. Mitsubishi has not confirmed the power output of the Final Edition for AU here either.The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition will run on gunmetal painted 18-inch BBS wheels, Recaro seats, Bilstein and Eibach suspension pieces, and Brembo brakes keeping its price tag at between AUD 47,000 to AUD 50,000.
“The Australian model will have increases in power and torque, and a similar level of enhanced performance to the Japanese model. Final specifications will be confirmed at a later date.” says Mitsubishi spokesman John Taylor.
Reports claim that Mitsubishi has not revealed the power output of the Final Edition, however admits that the GSR-based Evo will not carry the 473PS 2-liter 4B11T turbo-four motor of the Final Concept displayed at the January’s Tokyo Auto Salon. Instead, will feature 2-liter MIVEC turbo engine with sodium-filled exhaust valves, which should be good for producing an electrifying 290PS in mid ranges as well. It will also adopt the vehicle motion integrated control system S-AWC and achieve excellent stability.
