Edmunds' stalking of Mitsubishi engineers' Evo X shakedown continues. This time, they've captured the long-awaited hotshot at Willow Springs, on the Streets of Willow road course, engaging in a few lukewarm laps to test the 2008 Evo's componentry. Apparently, the test session capped off a round of fine cuisine and four-star hotelling for the test crew. That and a few extra hot laps in a BMW M3 for comparison's sake. Tough life. Latest word is that the Evo will debut in Frankfurt, not Tokyo where it would likely be overshadowed by Nissan's new GT-R.
