The new 2016 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Final Edition marks the end of the run for the fabled Lancer Evo. Only 350 copies will be available, and they will arrive at Canadian dealerships later this month starting at $49,498.
Mitsubishi took things to another level by giving the sporty compact a 2.0L MIVEC turbocharged engine producing 303 horsepower (up from 291) and 305 lb-ft of torque. A 5-speed manual gearbox comes standard.
In terms of design, the Lancer Evolution Final Edition sports forged aluminum BBS wheels, dark chrome around the front grille, a black-painted roof, and glossy black hood vents. This is complemented by a massive rear spoiler and Diamond White Pearl body paint.
The interior features Recaro bucket seats up front. Red stitching can be found on them, as well as on the steering wheel, shift knob, armrest, parking brake, and rear seats.
