Lancer Evolution Final Edition available in November

Lancer Evolution Final Edition available in November

A final run of Mitsubishi’s Lancer Evolution sedan will come to New Zealand this November before the model is withdrawn from sale.

Ten generations of Lancer Evolution have been sold across the globe during the past 23 years.

Some 30 examples of the Lancer Evolution Final Edition, built alongside 1,000 units for Mitsubishi’s home market in Japan, will be up for grabs for Kiwi enthusiasts.

“This Final Edition car is likely to be sought after as a collector’s piece” said Mitsubishi’s head of sales and marketing strategy Daniel Cook.

“Upgrades see the 2-litre turbocharged MIVEC engine’s revised mapping lifting power and torque to 230kW and 421Nm,” he says.

The Final Edition has a revised suspension, with high-performance Eibach springs and Bilstein shock absorbers, and the latest Brembo braking technology, plus S-AWC advanced all-wheel control.

It is fitted with full bucket Recaro front seats with red accent stitching echoed on the steering wheel and the shift knob for the five-speed manual transmission.

The Final Edition rides on 18-inch BBS forged alloy wheels and features a stand- out gloss black roof and commemorative badges inside and out.

Paint finishes are Tarmac Black, Titanium, New Silky White and Rose Red, and each car comes with a console-mounted serial plate reflecting its edition number.

“I’d suggest that with only 30 vehicles available, drivers who want this life-changing experience for themselves need to be on the phone to their Mitsubishi dealer very quickly,” says Cook.
