The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (colloquially known as the "Evo") is Mitsubishi's flagship sports car. Based only on the unibody of the domesticated Lancer sedan the Evo is a rally inspired,most affordable turbocharged, all wheel drive, durable and finely tuned automobile. The number designation of the model is most commonly a roman numeral. Evolution models prior to version V were the officially approved models for Mitsubishi's efforts in the World Rally Championship's Group A class and SCCA Pro Rally Championship. In order to follow these rules, the Evolution is based on the same platform as the Lancer, but is much more powerful and the only major part in common between the Evo and the Lancer is the unibody. Ten street versions of the Evolution have been produced from 1993 up to today. Evolution versions VI, VII, VIII, IX and X did not need to meet WRC homologation requirements.All Lancer Evolution models always come with a spoiler at the back.

Automotive Information Systems reports that the latest generation of the Lancer Evolution has exhibited minimal problems in all categories reviewed, earning it an overall Green rating from the organization.

  • RECALL ALERT: On September 18, 2009, the NHTSA issued a recall alert affecting 6,903 MY2008 and MY2009 Lancer Evolution, Ralliart, and Sportback Ralliart vehicles fitted with 2.0-liter turbocharged engines due to a poorly attached batch of fuel pipes. According to the report, running the engine at certain speeds over time may cause a damaging vibration that could lead to a stress crack in the fuel pipe and fuel leakage. Dealers will be instructed to replace the fuel pipe with a new component and add two new additional attachment brackets to lessen the effects of vibration. Replacement is free of charge.

Unique AttributesEdit

The Lancer Evolution was unique among its competitors in the World Rally Championship in that it is a homologated Group A car slightly modified to be able to race competitively against WRC class cars. They were successful in the WRC Rallies from 1996-1999, thanks to the Finn Tommi Makinen, for clinching the driver's titles from 1996-1999, and the help of teammate Richard Burns for clinching the manufacturer's championship for the first time in 1998. The Evolution however has now been replaced by the Lancer/Carisma GT and the new Lancer WRC04, but the Evo still competes in the Group A and Group N classes.

  • "If you don't intend on exploring the Evo's extreme limits on a regular basis, you might find its high-strung persona and compromised highway ride a bit tiresome after awhile. And if you're not interested in the drama, why pay the steep price for the ticket?" - Kelley Blue Book

Current Generation - Evolution X (2007-2015)Edit

This version sports a 2.0L MIVEC turbocharged and intercooled 291hp engine. There are two trim levels avaliable: GSR and MR. The Evo X MR feature an all-new transmission system: the Twin-Clutch SST that features three modes: Normal mode, for use around town and other normal driving situations, Normal mode uses relatively low-speed shift points to deliver unobtrusive shifting together with optimum fuel economy; Sport mode, for use when driving in the mountains or when engine braking is required.port mode uses higher shift points and quicker shifting to deliver instant throttle response; and S-Sport mode.Compared with Sport mode, S-Sport mode keeps the engine turning at higher revs, allowing even faster shifting.

Previous GenerationsEdit

Evo IX (2005–2006)Edit

This Evolution (US market) includes a turbocharged 286 hp (213 kW) inline four-cylinder engine and a full-time all wheel drive powertrain. Variable valve timing is an Evolution first in 2006, coming in the form of MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve-timing-and-lift Electronic Control). Japanese-spec cars were limited by a gentleman's agreement to advertise no more than 280 PS (276 hp, 208 kW), a mark already reached by the time of Evo IV; however, each generation of Evo's power has clandestinely evolved above the advertised number, with the Japan-spec Evo IX having real output of about 320 PS, and various versions available in other markets, particularly the UK, have official power outputs up to 366 bhp. Even standard components are considered "tuned" compared to other vehicles. For instance, the flywheel on normal cars weighs about 12-15 kilograms but the Lancer flywheel weighs a mere 6 kilos for very quick engine response. Unfortunately, the Evo has also been evolving into a heavier and heavier vehicle with each generation in face of tougher worldwide safety and emission regulations.

File:2006 Lancer Evolution silveronroad.jpg

Mitsubishi introduced the 2006 Lancer Evolution IX at the 2005 New York International Auto Show. The 2.0 L 4G63 engine now gets MIVEC technology (variable valve timing), boosting official power output to 286 hp (213 kW) and torque to 289 ft·lbf (392 N·m) - however actual figures are significantly higher. The Evolution 8 first offered in 2003 would produce dynamometer readings of approximately 225 WHP and 225 ft·lbf. WTQ with a flywheel power rating of 271/273 respectively. The Evolution IX typically pulls 255 WHP and 250 WTQ on a dynamometer, a difference of 30 horsepower, not even taking into consideration the drivetrain losses.

The Lancer Evolution IX models (RS,GSR,MR) vary in their performance capabilities. Subtleties unique to each model account for variations in acceleration, handling and top speed. The decontented RS is the purist's car, reaching 60 mph in a mere 4.4 seconds, compared to 4.5 for the slightly heavier IX and MR models (which have power windows, rear spoilers, and Xenon lights). Weight savings of over 60 pounds give the RS a subtly sharper handling responsiveness that helps it shave fractions of a second off the lap times of the IX and MR on an identical course. The premium price of the top-model MR is not spent in vain if speed is a priority, as the MR's 6th forward gear allows it to reach 165 mph at 7,000 rpm compared to 157 at 7,000 in 5th for the RS and middle-positioned GSR models. (Note: Data relevant to U.S. model specifications)

The IX keeps all the Evolution VIII MR goodies like Bilstein shocks, a 6-speed manual transmission, vortex generators, BBS alloy wheels, Recaro bucket seats, Brembo brakes, MOMO steering wheel, and an aluminium roof. Additional revisions from 2005 include a closer gear ratio for the 5-speed transmission, new lighter Enkei wheels on non-MR models, a redesigned front end w/c a more efficient air dam (the most noticeable feature are the two small oval ducts to cool the intercooler pipes) and new rear bumper with a diffuser undersurface to smooth out the airflow coming out of the car.

All three models were available in the US. All models used the same 286 hp (213 kW) engine. All models used a front and rear LSD (Limited Slip Differential), and an ACD (Active Center Differential).

  • Standard/GSR - revised 5-speed, standard model
  • RS - revised 5-speed, aluminium roof, gauge pack, minimal interior
  • MR - 6-speed, Bilstein monotube shocks, aluminium roof, gauge pack

Three models were also be available in Europe and Japan. Although all models used the same 286 hp (213 kW) engine, the torque differed from one model to another. The GSR produces 295 ft·lbf (400 Nm) of torque while the RS and GT produce 300 ft·lbf (407 Nm).

  • RS - revised 5-speed, aluminium roof, gauge pack, minimal interior, LSD and a titanium-magnesium turbine
  • GT - revised 5-speed, this is basically the RS mechanically, but with some of the GSR's features (mainly interior pieces).
  • GSR - 6-speed, Bilstein monotube shocks, aluminium roof, gauge pack, AYC (Active Yaw Control), and double-din radio (this is roughly equivalent to the MR)

A 2,500-piece, limited edition Evolution IX station wagon was released in Japan soon after the sedan's debut. It used the back end of the Lancer Sportback wagon grafted onto the sedan. Two trim models were be introduced: the GT with a six-speed manual transmission and the GT-A with a 5-speed automatic. Other than the station wagon back end, redesigned seats, and some small chromed trim pieces, the car's interior is the same as the sedan.

Mitsubishi also developed the Evolution MIEV, based on the Evolutions IX's chassis but with 4 electric engines connected to the four wheels as a test bed for the Mitsubishi In-wheel Electric Vehicle (MIEV) next-generation electric vehicle. The in-wheel engines use a hollow doughnut construction to locate the rotor outside the stator unlike other electric motors where the rotor turns inside the stator. The result of this is a lighter engine which translates into lower unsprung weight in a system where the engines are mounted in the wheels. Each in-wheel engine produces a power output of 68 hp, thus giving a massive combined output of 272 hp comparable to that of regular, gas powered Lancer Evolutions. The car subsequently competed in the Shikoku EV (Electric Vehicle) Rally 2005.

Eighth Generation (Evo VIII:2003-2005)Edit

The Evolution was changed again in 2003, this time sporting Super Active Yaw Control to handle traction and a 6-speed manual gearbox. It was available with 280 PS (276 hp/206 kW) in three trims: standard (GSR in Japan), RS (devoid of all excess components, such as the rear wing, trunk carpeting, interior map lights, power windows/doors, and radio) and MR, which came with a new vortex generator (a set of ridges above the rear window to improve aerodynamics). Both RS and MR Editions came with a revised limited-slip front differential.

The Lancer Evolution VIII MR uses slick-response Bilstein shocks for improved handling. The aluminium roof panel and other reductions in body weight have lowered the centre of gravity to realize more natural roll characteristics. Detail improvements have also been made to Mitsubishi’s own electronic all-wheel drive, to the ACD 5 + Super AYC 6 traction control and to the Sports ABS systems. The Lancer Evolution VIII displayed at the 2003 Tokyo Motor Show took the MR designation traditionally reserved for Mitsubishi Motors high-performance models and used first on the Galant GTO. Other parts on the MR include BBS alloy wheels, Recaro bucket seats, Brembo brakes, and a MOMO steering wheel

The Lancer Evolution VIII was also the first Evolution to come to the United States, spurred by the success of the Subaru Impreza WRX which had been released there just three years prior. However, the internal components for the American versions were based largely on the specifications for the Japanese Lancer Evolution VII. No US-spec Evolution has active yaw control, including the 2006 Evolution IX. The American 2003 and 2004 GSRs are without the helical limited-slip front differential and 6-speed manual transmission. The 2004 US spec RS model, however, does have a front helical limited-slip differential. All 2003, 2004 and 2005 RS and GSR models have the Japanese Evolution VII's 5-speed transmission. The MR edition was introduced to the US in 2004, the first model to sport the ACD and still (as of 2006) the only model with a 6-speed transmission. The 2005 US spec RS and GSR have the ACD standard, and the front helical limited-slip differential is now standard on all models. The timing and tuning are also slightly lower than its Japanese counterpart, allowing it to adhere to the strict emissions regulations of the United States.

Most Evolution VIIIs have a carbon fiber rear spoiler with matching body-color endplates, except for the MR Edition, whose endplates are painted black. The basic RS Edition does not come with a rear spoiler.

Seventh Generation (Evo VII:2001-2002)Edit

File:Lancer Evo7.jpg

In 2001, Mitsubishi decided to race in the World Rally Championship (WRC) class instead of the Group A class, and thus did not need to follow homologation rules. The Evo VII was based on the larger Lancer Cedia platform and as a result gained more weight over the Evo VI, but made up for this with multiple important chassis tweaks. The biggest change was the addition of an active center differential and a more effective limited-slip differential, while a front helical limited-slip differential was added. Torque was increased again to 284 ft·lbf (385 N·m) with engine tweaks that allowed greater airflow, and horsepower officially remained at 280 PS (276 hp/206 kW). Despite its civilian appearance, the Evolution VII can outrun many more expensive cars (such as the Ferrari 360 Modena, as seen in Best Motoring videos.)

Frame: CT9A, which is the currently used frame on all Evolutions manufactored currently. However, the X has not been confirmed.

Sixth Generation (Evo VI:1999-2000)Edit

The Evo VI's changes mainly focused on cooling and engine durability. It received a larger intercooler, larger oil cooler, and new pistons, along with a titanium-aluminide turbine wheel for the RS model, which was a first in a production car.
File:Lancer Evo6.jpg
Also, the Evo VI received new bodywork yet again, with the most easily spotted change in the front bumper where the huge foglights were reduced in size and moved to the corners for better airflow. A new model was added to the GSR and RS lineup; known as the RS2, it was an RS with a few of the GSR's options. Another limited-edition RS was known as the RS Sprint, and was tuned by Ralliart to be lighter and more powerful with 330 hp.

Yet another special edition Evo VI was also released in 1999: the Tommi Makinen edition, named after Finnish rally driver Tommi Makinen that had won Mitsubishi numerous WRC drivers championships. It featured Red/Black Recaro seats (with emmbosed T. Makinen logo), 17" ENKEI white wheels, a leather MOMO steering wheel and shift knob, a titanium turbine that spooled up quicker, front upper strut brace, lowered with tarmac stages in mind, a quicker lock to lock and amongst others colours, came in an exclusive shade of red with special decals, replicating Tommi Makinen's rally car's colour scheme. This car is also sometimes referred to as an Evo 6¹/².

It was during the Evo VI's model run that American car enthusiasts, who had been previously denied the Evolution models, began to clamour for its introduction to the United States. This was primarily due to exposure of the Evolution in movies, anime like Initial D, and video games such as the Gran Turismo series.

Frame: CP9A on both the TME and standard editions.

Fifth Generation (Evo V:1998)Edit

In 1997, the WRC created a new class, "World Rally Car", and while these cars still had to abide by Group A standards, they did not have to meet homologation rules. Mitsubishi redesigned the Evo IV with this in mind and introduced the Evo V in January of 1998.

Many aspects of the car were changed such as: The interior was upgraded in the GSR version with a better class of Recaro seat. The body kit had flared arches at the front and rear and a new aluminium rear spoiler relaced the IV FRP version and gave an adjustable angle of attack to alter rear down force. The track was widened by 10 mm, the wheel offset changed from ET45 to ET38 along with the wheel diameter which rose from 16" to 17" to accommodate Brembo brakes which were added to enhance braking. In addition the brake master cylinder bore increased by 0.3 mm. The engine was strengthened in a few areas and the cam duration was increased. The pistons were lighter with a smaller skirt area. 510 cc injectors were replaced with 560 cc injectors for better engine reliability due to more electrical "headroom" and the ecu was changed to include a flash rom.

Further more, the turbocharger was again improved. Torque was increased to 275 ft·lbf (373 N·m) at 3000 rpm. Power officially stayed the same, at 280 PS (276 hp/206 kW) as agreed by Japan's automotive gentlemen's agreement that all cars would have 276 or less hp, but reputable sources claim horsepower was actually somewhat higher.

Frame: CP9A

Fourth Generation (Evo IV:1996-1997)Edit

The Lancer platform was completely changed in 1996, and along with it the Evo, which had become extremely popular throughout the world. The engine and transaxle was rotated 180° to better balance the weight and eliminate torque steer.
File:Lancer Evo4.jpg
There were 2 versions available, The RS and GSR. The RS version was produced as a competition car with a limited-slip front differential and a friction type LSD at the rear. It also came with GLX seats and 16" steel wheels as these were items that would be replaced by anyone entering the car into competition events. The RS also had wind up windows, no air conditioning-just heater, and a few extra brace bars to strengthen the chassis, one behind the front grill and the other across the boot floor. The RS also had a factory otion of thinner body panels and thinner glass! The GSR and the RS shared a new twin scroll turbocharger which helped to increase power to 280 PS (276 hp/206 kW) at 6500 rpm and 260 ft·lbf (352 Nm) of torque at 3000 rpm. Mitsubishi's new Active yaw control appeared as a factory option on the GSR model, which used steering, throttle input sensors and G sensors to computer-hydraulically controlled torque split individually to the rear wheels and as a result the 10,000 Evo IVs produced all sold quickly. The Evo IV can be distinguished by its two large foglights on the front bumper, and the newly designed tail lights on the rear, which became a standard design to Evo VI, which would become yet another trademark of the Evolution series. This new generation was slightly heavier than previous Evos - the GSR in particular due to the added technology systems- but to counter this the car produced even more power - the Weight of the RS being 1260 kg and the GSR being 1345 kg. This was the only model year to use the CN9A as its frame.

Frame: CN9A.

Third Generation (Evo III:1995)Edit

File:Lancer Evo3.jpg

January 1995 saw the arrival of the Evo 3- and this time the 5000 strong production run was brought up more quickly than the Evo 2. The Evo 3 looked more serious, with it's new nose moulding (to channel air better to the radiator, intercooler, and brakes). New side skirts and rear corners, while the rear wing had grown again to reduce lift. Under the vented aluminium bonnet a new TDO5-16G6-7 Turbo, new exhaust system and increased compression brought another 10ps power rise, Torque output was unaltered, apart from a higher final drive ratio. Both GSR and RS still used the same 5speed gearbox. Interior tweaks were limited to a new Momo steering wheel (GSR only) and new fabric on the Evo 2 type Recaros. The specs on this vehicle were an engine size of 1997 cc, 270 bhp@6250 rpm, Torque was 228 lb ft at 3000 rpm. weight is 1260 kg (rs 1190 kg) A top speed of 149 mph and 0-60 in 4.9secs. This model still uses the same frame. (CE9A)

Frame: CE9A

Second Generation (Evo II:1993-1995)Edit

The successful Evo I was changed in December of 1993, and was produced until 1995. It consisted mainly of handling improvements, including minor wheelbase adjustments, larger swaybars, bodywork tweaks including a larger spoiler, and beefier tires. Power output was increased to 256 PS (252 hp/188 kW) from the same engine and torque was unchanged for both GSR and RS models. Also, Mitsubishi decided to change the frame this year to CE9A, a spin off the CD9A used in the previous edition.

Frame: CE9A

First Generation (Evo I:1992)Edit

The Evolution I[5] was introduced in 1992 to compete in the World Rally Championship. It used the 2.0 L turbocharged DOHC engine and 4WD drivetrain from the original Galant VR-4 in a Lancer chassis, and was sold in GSR and RS models. The latter was a stripped-down club racing version that lacked power windows and seats, anti-lock brakes, a rear wiper, and had steel wheels to save approximately 155 lb (70 kg) over the 2730 lb (1238 kg) GSR, while the former came with all of the conveniences of a typical street car. It came with Mitsubishi's 4G63 engine producing 247 PS (244 hp/182 kW) at 6000 rpm and 228 ft·lbf (309 N·m) at 3000 rpm, along with all wheel drive which would become a trademark on all Evo models. 5,000 Evo Is were sold between 1992 and 1993. It uses the frame CD9A.

  • Frame: CD9A


The Evo was originally intended only for Japanese markets but demand on the 'grey import' market led the Evolution series to be offered through limited type-approval in the United Kingdom and in various European markets from around 1998 (Evo V-VI). Mitsubishi decided to export the eighth generation Evolution to the United States in 2003 after witnessing the success Subaru had in that market with their Impreza WRX, a direct competitor in other global regions.

Concept X RallyEdit


In some European markets, the Evo was sold as the Mitsubishi Carisma Evolution. Proton Motors of Malaysia races an Evolution VII as the Proton Pert in various APAC rally series.

In the United Kingdom, many special Evolutions were introduced, which included FQ320, FQ340, and FQ400 variants (FQ said jocularly to stand for 'Fucking Quick'). They each came with 320, 340, and 400 hp (239, 254, and 298 kW), respectively.

The FQ400, sold through Ralliart UK, produces 302.13 kW (405.2 hp), from its 2.0 L 4G63 engine as the result of being specially modified by United Kingdom tuning firms Rampage, Owen Developments and Flow Race Engines. At 202.9 hp (151.3 kW) per litre, it has one of the highest specific output per litre of any roadcar engine. With a curb weight of around 3200 lb, it achieves a 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and a 0-100 in around 9 seconds, while costing about £47,000. BBC's television series Top Gear demonstrated that the FQ-400 could easily keep up with a Lamborghini Murcielago around a test track. The Stig recorded a Top Gear Power Lap Times of 1 minute 24.8 seconds.

Design quirks and odditiesEdit

Evolution models have been featured in films including Jackie Chan's Thunderbolt (Lancer Evolution III), Who Am I? (Lancer Evolution IV), 2 Fast 2 Furious (Lancer Evolution VII (Mustard Yellow Street Options)), The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (Lancer Evolution IX (tuned)), Taxi 2 (Lancer Evolution IV and V) and Taxi 3 (Lancer Evolution VII (interceptor)), Legend of Speed (Lancer Evolution III and IV), Legend of Speed 2 (Lancer Evolution V), the Japanese anime and live-action hit Initial D (Lancer Evolution III, IV, V and VI TME) and the manga Wangan Midnight (Lancer Evolution V and VI).

The cars is also featured in many computer racing games including the popular driving simulator Gran Turismo, with Gran Turismo 4 featuring over 20 variants, including racing models. EA's Need for Speed: Underground 2 and Need for Speed: Most Wanted featured the Evolution VIII, And the upcoming Need for Speed: Carbon features the Evolution IX. Rockstar Games' Midnight Club 3 also has the Evolution VIII. Taito's Battle Gear series, featured the Evos III-VIII, and also comes with Tuned versions of Evo III and IV from Initial D racers. The Evos often featured in several racing games imported from Japan, such as Kaido Battle series, Altus' Touge Max series, and Tokyo Xtreme Racer series and many more. The cars also became ubiquitous in the import racing Scene.

The Evo is also featured in the movie: Fast and the Furious Tokyo Drift. It is driven by the main character.

Discontinuation Edit

Mitsubishi stated that the Lancer Evolution would cease by end of March 2016, and the car-maker has chosen to focus on vehicles that incorporate electric technology. A "Final Edition" will be offered with special production number badges.
