Mitsubishi's made the long-awaited Evo X official in Japan, releasing a spec sheet on the JDM version of its Lancer of Lancers. With a new 2.0-liter MIVEC four and a new (or, in some cases, improved) set of AWD drivetrain components — including a new twin-clutch transmission (SST) — and running gear, the car that taught a generation of boy-racer types what "yaw" means will debut at the equivalent of $30,388 ($32,605 with twin-clutch SST transmission). A stripped-down, weight-reduced RS competition model will go for $26,042. No word on US pricing. The SST automanual will debut in November. The company says, as always, the Evo's development goal is "to make the car as fast as possible, while also making it as safe to drive as possible." Simplicity is good.
