After the pictures of the standard sedan released back in December 2006, Mitsubishi has finally revealed the next generation of the extreme Evolution version.
The design is basically unchanged from the Prototype X presented at the 2007 Detroit Motor Show and previewed in 2005 with the Concept X.
The name of the model for the Japanese market will be Galant Fortis ("fortis" means strong in Latin).
The X that follows the Evolution name indicates the 10th generation of the rally-inspired version.
From the official Press Release:
The Lancer Evolution X model features Mitsubishi’s S-AWC (Super All Wheel Control) traction and handling system, that integrates the control of drive torque and braking management with the four-wheel drive system to improve both handling and stability.
The new lightweight 2.0-liter turbocharged MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing) engine has an aluminum cylinder block and a 6-speed automated manual transmission.
The cockpit design is focused on the driver.
