Mitsubishi is all geared up to launch its globally lauded Evolution X today. It’s notable that the company had confirmed the launch a few months ago, just that the date has been revealed no. The crazy spinning 2.0 litre force inducted motor of the EVO produces a mind boggling 403 horses and propels this baby to 100km/h from a standstill in less than 4 seconds. The engine will be mated to a five-speed manual and a 6-speed super fast twin-clutch transmission.
The engine of the EVO X employs MIVEC electronic valve timing technology. The EVO is quite capable of nudging past the 300km/h mark without breaking a sweat, but the car has been restricted to 250km/h for India.
[According to BSM, this Japanese monster will sport a price tag of Rs.49.95 lakhs, ex-showroom Delhi.
The FQ300, which the ‘lucky’ Indian market gets has a 2.0L engine good enough to pump out 280 horses @6500 rpm. ]
