Mitsubishi's Concept-X, which the company unveiled at the Frankfurt show last year (and in a more refined form later at the Tokyo show), basically gave away the plotline of the next-generation Evo sports coupe. Now, a quick-fingered photog caught a test mule of the new Evo X hammering Germany's N rburgring. Sharing the new Mitsubishi Lancer platform with the new Dodge Caliber and Jeep Compass, the Evo X will get a new 2.0-liter mill, an improved AWD system and six-speed clutchless tranny with paddles. Clear!
