As far as I'm aware, Top Gear never even reviewed, let alone launched the 9 MRfq360 round there test track, with the Stig.

Anyone no if Top Gear actually ever did a lap in the MR, or was the 9 fq360 simply overlooked by Top Gear for some reason?

Interesting they went back to 360 Bhp on the IX for their top model as opposed to 400 on the VIII.

Why?

Why did Mitsubishi reduce the BHP, ditch the forged engine and monster Alcons on 9MR 360?

Surely this indicate's, Mitsubishi wern't happy with the 8 400.

Either that, or cost.

I wouldn't be surprised if they weren't, it wasn't particularly well received on a technical level. It's still a sought after and desired model but only for the badge\prestige, not because it's actually a good car. I think once the dust has settled the X400\x440 will go down as the best evos ever made.
