The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X was a revolutionary car in the Evolution series for a number of reasons. It is on this machine that we saw an entirely new engine.
Although it was still a 2-liter, turbocharged inline-four, the cylinder block was cast aluminum rather than the previous cast iron. This alone made it a whole 12kg lighter, just as it replaced the belt with the timing belt. Those were just a few notable remarkable turnarounds on the Mitsubishi Evolution X.
This car further features the dual-clutch unit TC SST or Twin Clutch Sports Shift Transmission, which is tipped on six ratios and enables the provision of 276 bhp. Sprinting to from zero to 62mh in just 5.2 secs hints to a speedy machine that needs no child play to handle.
Whereas the Lancer is generally a sportier car and one that is vehemently practical, the Evolution X places the entire series at the top of the game. To crown the whole Lance affair, the company put up for auction the 1,600th edition of the lance which was the Final Edition car.
In the world of motoring, history is made by both small and major milestones achieved along the way. The Mitsubishi Evolution X still stands out among its peers and makes a good ride on the track and the highway.
