IF it is more powerful than a FQ400, coupled with it being a special edition, then surely the price will be north of the FQ400's list price of £50k??
You would have to be a die hard Mitsubishi Evo fan to be shelling out that level of money on one.

I guess we'll have to wait untill March then...

I can't see them having more than power than the FQ400 though.

Oh FFS, not SST. And white does nothing of me either! Lived with the SST box for 3 years now. Do NOT want another one. Flaky, unpredictable, dim witted pile of Getrag crap. My one regret over buying mine is not going manual.

Regarding the power, take that article with a pinch of salt. They've taken one part of the statement, "but also ensured the cars have the right standard equipment to deliver the performance we want" and are somehow translating that as the most powerful Evo ever? I'd take it to mean some leather, satnav and a few choice tuning parts. If it's an SST, there's no way it'll be over 360bhp. As for price, this needs to be no more than £32k, and wit hat least 330bhp+ The M135i has changed the market entirely, as has the A45 AMG at the upper end. Love the Evo as I do, there's no way it has the quality and residuals to be priced at A45 level, especially with the new Impreza STI only costing £28995 before discounts. Even a new FQ400 couldn't be priced at £50k anymore as the A45 Black Series will match it for power and cost less if rumours are correct.

My local dealer just emailed me a copy of Lance Bradley's (Mitsubishi UK) email to all dealers which pretty much confirms the above:

Dear All,

I’m very pleased to tell you that we have just agreed pricing and production for a final run of Lancer Evolution X, the 40th anniversary edition. There will be a total of 40 cars.



This now allows us to finalise our plans in terms of specification and retail pricing. We will announce full details at the Dealer Conference on March 19th. For those of you who have customers interested in this car you can now tell them that it will be going ahead, and that full details including pricing will be available on March 19th.



With only 40 vehicles available we expect demand to be high. We will advise you at the conference how to reserve cars. Please do not call your VSA to try to reserve a car until after then because they will not be able to do so.



Best wishes

Lance


All that I can tell you beyond the above is that all the cars will be in white solid paint and have the SST transmission


Please let ne know if you have an interest as only 40 cars WILL sell out very quickly indeed

Buying them all as SSTs was a mistake - Mitsi will never warranty that box on anything over 360 bhp, so it's immediately a big step down from the 4 year old FQ-400.

Will be intrigued to know what has changed on the basic car that we got as FQs (all of which were MY2008) and these new models which must be MY2014?

Couldn't they come up with a better colour than white for a special. You think they would have chosen a colour that wasn't already been used on the ten.

Indeed. Mine's on its second SST box after only 26,000 miles (box gave up at 21,000 miles).

Maybe the white will be a decent pearlescent? Like the Abarth 500s?
