We will spoil the information of the 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. If you have been wondering about changes on the new super car, we will find out. Though the new series has got all of us excited, the fact that it will be the last offering from the company is just sad. Yes, it’s already confirmed that the series will step out of the game after the last model is released. We are yet to know what car will replace the gorgeous Lancer Evolution. The company just said that anything that would replace the series, it will break ties from all the models that have been released, meaning that it will probably look and perform brand-new.

It does sound exciting, even more because the production phase will not start until they get their act together and find the best technology for the new car. This last series has a couple of upgrades, like the side mirrors that are now heated. It also has new integrated turn signals. Nothing is groundbreaking so far, including the new drop cup holders found on the interior. Here’s more you need to know about the car. A new Special Edition model will be introduced. Is there anything that makes it special? Well, if you find the X FQ-440 MR any special, then you will feel the same about it. Both are said to have some striking similarities.

The release coincided the company’s 40th anniversary. The new car will be more powerful. Some sources assumed that it was a way to treat loyal costumers here in the US. If you live in the United States and happen to be a fan of the series, you will be more spoiled with the extra horsepower promised. The production number will be limited, probably in the range between 2,000 and 2,500 units. If the euphoria for this release matches what happened in the UK, chances are the car will sell out very quickly. What are the unique features of the UK models? The series has a 2.0-liter engine which generates a whopping 440 horsepower and 412 lb. Ft of torque.

Meanwhile, the special edition has a whale of great features, like Janspeed Exhaust System, an HKS turbo, intercooler piping & Janspeed intake kits, etc. The UK market was only served with only 40 examples. Those who live in the US are luckier because thousands of units will be distributed nationwide. But still, these numbers are nothing to brag about. If you do not quickly snatch one after the official release, you will probably get none. Once the series go on sale, you should quickly grab your own.
