Mitsubishi’s iconic Lancer Evo sports sedan is in its tenth and final generation. The Japanese sports sedan will bid farewell with a ‘Final Edition’. While the U.S. market was alloted 1,600 units of the special edition, Canada will get only 350 units of the same. The GSR Premium trim level-based limited edition model is priced at CA$49,498.
Noteworthy exterior features include Diamond White Pearl paint colour, black painted roof panel, forged alloy BBS wheels, gloss-black front bumper centre and hood air outlets, dark chrome front grille surrounds and “Final Edition” badge at the rear.
The interior of the Evo Final Edition gets an all-black theme that is in stark contrast with the red accent stitching seen on the steering wheel, gear shift knob, front Recaro seats, rear seats, hand-brake handle, floor mats and armrest. The Final Edition models also receive a numbered plate bearing the production serial number placed on the center console just ahead of the gear shift lever. The multi-information display is also programmed to show a “Final Edition” animation reminding the occupants about the significance of their car.
The Evo Final Edition is powered by a 2.0-liter MIVEC turbocharged four-cylinder gasoline engine putting out 303 hp and 305 lb.-ft. (414 Nm) of torque. The only gearbox available is the 5-speed manual transmission. Dynamic performance and handling characteristics are ensured by the Super All-Wheel Control with active centre differential, active yaw control and drive-mode selector, front Macpherson strut suspension with forged aluminum control arms, Eibach springs and Bilstein shocks. Stopping power is guaranteed by two-piece front ventilated disc brakes by Brembo.
