Mitsubishi Lancer Edition R Is Aimed At Those Clamoring For An Evo XI

By putting an end to the Evolution line of performance cars as we know them, Mitsubishi basically told fans of the rally homologation special to take their business elsewhere.

Sure, the automaker promised to bring back the Evo as a crossover, which is as far removed from the Evo ethos as can be. Imagine a toned-down production version of the e-Evolution Concept with an electrified powertrain and that’s as close to a new Mitsubishi Evo we’re going to get.

The good news is that if you don’t mind someone else building you a Lancer Evolution, you might want to consider this rather appealing Evo XI body kit built by Polish company Dytko Sport.

Specializing in building parts and components for Lancer Evo rally cars, the firm decided to build a successor of the Lancer Evo X itself. Working with UK-based subsidiary Proto Cars, Dytko Sport created a body kit that fits the bill and incorporates Mitsubishi’s Dynamic Shield design language.

It fits the Lancer Evo X body quite nicely and could pass as an official effort. And even though underneath lies an Evo X, which isn’t a bad looking car itself, this one follows Mitsubishi’s new design language very closely.

Of course, Dytko Sport’s Lancer Edition R (that’s the official name) could use a little polishing around the edges. But the work that has gone into it clearly deserves praise. The car features a custom hood, unique bumpers, a roof scoop, wide-body panels and a massive rear wing and diffuser.

The front end is clearly better executed than the rear, which features similar taillights to the Jaguar XE. We don’t have any photos of the interior, but it seems to be rally-ready with a full roll cage, front bucket racing seats, and no rear bench. There’s no word on performance upgrades just yet, but the 2.0-liter turbocharged four should put out at least 280 PS (206 kW, 276 hp) and as much as 367 PS (270 kW, 360 hp), depending on the specs of the donor car.

    This render still looks like the old lancer but with updated front and rear facias.

    I’m surprised to see that the Chinese restyling fits an Evo-like bodywork way better than the original lines of this Lancer generation in question.

  • Gustavo Adriano

    Actually the tailights are from the E Pace 🙂

    Actually looks good besides the rear, not feeling the small taillights.

  • Dude

    I honestly love everything about the looks.

  • Bash

  • Kaido Alex

    Mitsubishi sucks nowadays, and this car ain’t cutting it.

  • The ‘Shield Design’ works quite well on this. Would like to see this Evo without stickers on it.

  • I think it’s a rather spot on, but yeah those Evolution nostalgia will haunt it.

  • Dennis Scipio

    Seriously?

  • Trackhacker

    This could of been the EVO 11 since it looks awesome!
