The Lancer Evolution Final Edition has arrived in Australia, with only 150
examples on sale down under. In its tenth and final generation, the Lancer Evolution Final Edition delivers the highest
engine performance in the legendary Evo series.
Already known for its extraordinary performance, the Lancer Evolution Final Edition increases power to 226kW of power
@ 6,500 rpm and 414Nm of torque @3,500 rpm.
This has been achieved in part through the application of sodium filled exhaust valves which increases cooling
efficiency, allowing the engine to generate an even higher output and improving engine performance across both middle and
high rev and torque ranges.
Based on a design that powered Finnish racing legend Tommi Mäkinen to four straight titles in the gruelling World
Rally Championship (WRC), the turbo-charged and inter-cooled 2.0-litre DOHC four-cylinder engine delivers instantaneous
power and torque.
Consisting of a structurally reinforced cast-aluminium block, aluminium cylinder head and fitted with the latest
edition of Mitsubishi Motors’ innovative MIVEC variable valve-timing system, this impressive engine’s architecture
features a square design with both its bore and stroke measure an equal 86.0mm with a compression ratio of 9.0:1.
Previously used in the highly successful Lancer Evolution VII, VIII and IX engines, the cylinder head valves are
sodium-filled. The valves are hollowed out and then filled with specially formulated sodium. This achieves a weight
reduction and improved heat dispersion compared to standard valves.
The Lancer Evolution’s distinctive exhaust note is due to the systems free-flowing dual exhaust outlets. The stainless
steel exhaust manifold and turbocharger are located at the rear of the transversely-mounted engine and close to the
firewall which helps to improve weight distribution.
Lancer Evolution Final Edition comes standard with a short-throw, 5-speed manual transmission.
Performance is further enhanced by the use of world leading motor sport suppliers including light weight two-piece
Brembo® brake rotors up front, accompanied by Bilstein® shock absorbers and Eibach® springs at all four corners.
One of the most sophisticated and rally proven all-wheel drive systems ever developed for a production car, the Super
All-Wheel Control (S-AWC) system, working with Lancer Evolution’s superbly engineered suspension, provides performance
and tractability like no other.
The S-AWC system allows the driver to choose between three selectable traction mode settings – tarmac, gravel and snow
providing maximum tractability and performance in all weather and road conditions.
The S-AWC system is also complemented by the Active Yaw Control (AYC), Active Stability Control (ASC) and Sport
Anti-lock Braking (ABS) with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Limited Slip Differential to deliver a remarkable
level of traction and agility.
The Lancer Evolution Final Edition’s suspension features inverted McPherson struts up front, using Bilstein® shock
absorbers and Eibach® springs. Front suspension also includes a stabiliser bar and aluminium control arms. The Brembo®
brakes are lightweight with two-piece rotors.
Rear suspension is an independent multi-link low mount design with stabiliser bar with Bilstein® shock absorbers and
Helping protect the vehicle’s occupants in the event of an accident are Mitsubishi Motors’ patented next-generation
Reinforced Impact Safety Evolution (RISE) technology to help disperse energy from the cabin section as well as the fuel
system and a supplemental restraint system (SRS) with occupant sensors and a total of seven airbags: a driver’s side knee
airbag, two front airbags, two front seat-mounted side-impact airbags and two side curtain airbags.
The Lancer Evolution Final Edition also comes with a rear view camera.
Outside, new 18-inch BBS® satin platinum alloy wheels with gold centre wheel ornament, gloss black bonnet air outlets
and front bumper centre, radiator grille with dark chrome surround and unique two tone colour range with black painted
exterior roof enhance the Lancer Evolution’s famous good looks. A special ‘Final Edition’ badge also features on the boot
Premium interior appointments unique to the Final Edition model include leather steering wheel, park brake, shift knob
with contrasting red stitching, black headlining, black pillars, leather look floor console with red stitching and ‘Final
Edition’ carpet mats.
Recaro® partial leather bucket seats with contrast red stitching emphasise the Lancer Evolution’s performance
credentials. The colour multi-information display also features a ‘Final Edition’ greeting on start up.
The Lancer Evolution Final Edition has a unique two-tone colour range available in Starlight White, Tungsten Grey and
Red with a contrasting black roof and Phantom Black with a contrasting gloss black roof.
Each model will feature it’s own unique serial number plate – AU0001 to AU0150.
Mitsubishi Motors Executive Director Marketing Tony Principe said that the Lancer Evolution’s ground-breaking
technology will continue to evolve in future Mitsubishi vehicles.
“Throughout the last decade, Lancer Evolution served as a halo for the Lancer sedan range and the Mitsubishi brand
on the strength of its incredible rally heritage, state-of-the-art technology and sure-footed dynamics”.
“The Final Edition Lancer Evolution, delivering the highest engine performance in the history of the Evo series,
builds on all of the technology honed in the evolutionary path since the introduction of the Evolution I in 1992,”
said Mr Principe.
“While the Lancer Evolution has reached full maturity as a high-performance four-wheel drive sedan, Mitsubishi
Motors will continue to apply technology honed from the Lancer Evolution like Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control
(S-AWC) four wheel drive system, to other vehicles, as with Outlander PHEV.”
