Mitsubishi announced the details of its upcoming Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR
special edition which is making an historic return to help celebrate the
company's 40th anniversary in the UK.
The Lancer Evolution X has already achieved legendary status among fans thanks to its past rallying successes and this special edition will help push the boundaries even further with more power than ever before.
All vehicles will be fitted with a data recorder which is connected through the On-board diagnostic (OBD) system. This will record details such as driving style, performance, vehicle diagnostics, and present location. Details of the data will be available to both CCC and the registered owner of the vehicle. The fitment of, and reporting of data from this device is a condition of the vehicle warranty. A three year subscription to the service is included in the vehicle price.
Lancer Evolution will only be available in Frost White (W37) color.
Servicing schedules for the Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR will consist of an initial 1,000 mile oil change, with further service intervals at 4,500 miles or 6 months, whichever comes first. The FQ-440 is supplied with a comprehensive 3yr or 36,000 mile warranty.
"Mitsubishi Motors in the UK are pleased to announce that, as part of our celebrations of being 40 years in the UK, we will be producing 40 special edition Evo Xs. The Lancer Evolution has always been a halo model for Mitsubishi and this special edition is no exception. More powerful than ever before and with a very limited availability, it will be a 'must have' for all die-hard Evolution fans," said Lance Bradley, Managing Director for Mitsubishi Motors in the UK.
