2008 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X Brochure Leaked: Specs Revealed

|
While we’re waiting to see if Mitsubishi will unveil the new 2008 Lancer EVO X (high-res images of the production version here) at the Frankfurt Show next month or at the Tokyo Show in October, an official brochure of the Japanese-spec version has been leaked into the web revealing several details on the car. Most importantly, we learn that the Lancer EVO X’s new lightweight 2.0-liter turbocharged MIVEC*4 engine delivers 206 kw which translates to 280 PS or, 276 HP @ 6.500 rpm and a maximum torque figure of 422 Nm (311 lb.ft or 43.0 kgm) @ 3.500 rpm.

Comparatively, the 4G63 2L DOHC intercooled 2.0L turbo engine used in the outgoing Lancer EVO IX had the same output of 206 kW (280 PS) at 6,500 rpm, but a lower maximum torque figure of 400 Nm (295 lb.ft or 40.8 kgm) at 3,000 rpm for the 6-speed M/T GSR, and 407 Nm (300 lb.ft or 41.5 kg-m) at 3,000 rpm for the 5-speed M/T RS. Of course, since these figures concern the JDM version, we’ll have to wait to see what Mitsubishi has in mind for the European and US versions spec versions. -Continued after the jump

Albeit it’s virtually impossible to translate the 27 page long brochure, we managed to make out a few things including the fact that the Lancer EVO X will be available in Japan in two versions, the GSR and the RS. The GSR will be offered either with Mitsubishi’s new 6-speed dual-clutch gearbox (read more about that here) or with a 5-speed manual. The RS will be available solely with the 5-speed manual gearbox.
