    Arrow 2007 Mitsubishi EVO X.

    Auto Express, UK: http://www.autoexpress.co.uk/news/59..._revealed.html



    It's a perfect 10 for Mitsubishi. Auto Express can exclusively reveal the Evo X ahead of its debut at October's Tokyo Motor Show. And to prepare the world for the rally bred saloon, Mitsubishi will unveil a concept version of the standard Lancer at next month's Frankfurt expo.

    Designers have exposed their plans and released an official picture of the new four-door (second image). But with the ninth incarnation of the Evolution only recently launched, it's a surprise details of its successor are being revealed now.
    With sleek, aggressive styling, the next-generation Lancer promises to be a genuinely attractive saloon. But the four-door will only be sold here in hot Evo X form. Cheaper variants are likely in five-door and estate guises, with all versions going on sale in the UK in mid-2007.

    The thrilling newcomer promises to represent a big step forward in design and engineering quality. With the benefit of a new platform, the Evo X will deliver a more extreme driving experience than its predecessors, and sharper performance. The firm is already working on an advanced all-wheel-drive transmission which it hopes will better anything future Subaru Imprezas can offer.

    Under the bonnet is a fresh 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, which will be turbocharged to give a minimum of 320bhp. Flagship machines are expected to boast more than 400bhp, surpassing even the hardest-tuned editions of the Evo IX.

    Re: 2007 Mitsubishi EVO X.

    I really like it....the front is reminiscent of the old Evo IV/V/VI (Mirage/Lancer) just edgier and more advanced/updated. The side with the flares is reminiscent of the a BMW 3 series profile...AND its supposed to be better then it's predecessors....I can't wait!!!!!

    looks more upscale.....lets just hope the price doesn't reflect that

    Yeah, I noticed the BMW 3 series side profile immediately. Very nice work. Looks good.

    Now that is a nice looking Evo. I hope it either looks like this or very similar to this. Yes, I like Lancer Evos....I always have. I still like the IV, VII, and IX the best.....but if the X looks anything like this, then it'll be my new favorite.

    The second picture posted looks gorgeous. Hopefully, the US replacement for the Lancer will be similar. I hope they make it large enough and give it a manumatic (and stay away from the toy ****************pit in the new Civic) - that thing could put Mitsu back in the game.

    I'm really not into this new concept of trout-style front ends.

    Thumbs up Re: 2007 Mitsubishi EVO X.

    OK people, that red one above, is a photoshop work based on the current EVO.

    However, the silver one, it's the OFFICIAL Mitsubishi sketch design, in fact, I decided to post a few more pics:









    Given a few more days, and we will see it in the metal, as this is what Mitsubishi will be showing at the 2005 Frankfurt motorshow.

    Great profile, unbearably hideous front end. Rear isn't doing much for me, either.

    Now, that front end makes a better statement than the current Mitsu front ends. Only if Mitsu is in better financial situation. Perhaps DCX will get a version of it!

    I like it. Short overhangs and aggressive styling.

    I agree about front end......but I don't like the hatch rear.....you can tell it's on that new platform with the dodge caliber, etc.....maybe DCX will get an SRT-4 version especially if mitsu leaves the NA.....I dunno what to think about the hatch...I always liked that is was a sedan(I actually preferef the photoshop red one)...but other then that....nice!

    Is the showing at Frankfurt to be the production ready or just a concept version?

    I love it, the front and rear fascias, the side profile, the roof - sweetness!

    The silver car is a real Mitsu concept, but not of the Evo X.

    Automobile Mag says this is an indication of the Lancer and the Evo X.
