Final Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Models Now Being Made

The 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition will be the last hurrah for the cult favorite sports sedan, entering production now, in limited numbers. This will be the last of the Evo cars to be produced, after ten generations of fun times and twelve years of sales in the United States.

The Final Edition is based on the current GSR model with some interior and exterior enhancements as exclusives for the Evo Final Ed. It starts with the turbocharged and intercooled 16-valve 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 303 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque. A five-speed standard transmission is mandatory. Lightweight Brembo two-piece brake rotors, Bilstein shocks, Elbach springs, and Super All-Wheel Control finish the deal.

The Final Edition model receives exterior upgrades including a Final Edition badge in the rear, black painted aluminum roof, dark chrome painted Enkei® alloy wheels, gloss black center bumper and hood air outlet and dark chrome front grille surround. Final Edition models will be offered in four colors: new Pearl White, Rally Red, Mercury Gray and Octane Blue.

Inside, a numbered plaque on the center console denotes each of the 1,600 units created. In addition, Final Edition models receive a black headliner, pillars, sun visors and assist handles, and red accent stitching for sport seats, steering wheel, shift knob, console lid, floormats and e-brake handle.
