History, development and general characteristics

In March 2005, Mitsubishi introduced the 9th series Lancer Evolution in the Japanese and the European markets. A month later, the car was also displayed at the New York International Auto Show, marking the model’s entry into the North American market.

The Lancer Evo IX was produced in four different trim versions worldwide – the GSR (standard), the RS, the SE and the MR – each with a distinct level of performance. However, the Evo versions released in the United Kingdom fill up a different scheme: the FQ-300, FQ-320, FQ-340 and FQ-360 are the versions released for the Evo IX there, each one named after its horsepower output.
Mitsubishi suspended the Evo IX’s production run in  October 2007.

Engine and Transmission

Mitsubishi provides all the Lancer Evolution IX units with a 2.0 L Sirius engine with twin-scroll Turbo. This model is built with four-wheel drive system.
All the Evo IX trim level versions sold worldwide, except for the ones sold in the UK, deliver 286 hp and reach 155 mi/h (249 km/h), going from 0–60 mi/h (0–97 km/h) in 4.7 seconds. The strongest Evo version produced for the UK market, FQ-360, delivers 366 hp, reaches its top speed at 162 mi/h (260 km/h), and goes from 0–60 mi/h in 4.1 seconds.
The Evo IX can be given a 5-speed or a 6-speed manual transmission, according to its trim level.

Body and Design

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX is a 4-door sedan, although there was a limited edition station wagon version that was only sold in Japan and had 2.500 copies built.
The work that was done on the Evo IX’s bodyshell consisted on several styling upgrades that would further develop the car’s aerodynamics and its engine-cooling efficiency.

Trivia

In June 2006, “ConsumerSearch.com” elected the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution “best Aggressive sports sedan” within its Best Sports Sedans list.

Lancer Evolution


Lancer Evolution was launched in 1992. Evo, as it is also known, it’s a high-performance version of the popular Mitsubishi Lancer. Evo debuted as 4-door sedan, but a 5-door hatchback version was introduced with the launch of the ninth generation. Intended only for the Japanese market, the high demand abroad turned the model international. Today, Evo is sold in Japan, North America, Europe, Australia, and Southeast Asia. The current series, Evolution X, will be kept in production until 2013.   more
