Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X FQ-400 details revealed

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

The Mitsubishi Evo X FQ-400, the UK-only verson, is the revival of the 400 hp Evo. Designed by Mitsubishi UK and its race team builder ADR Motorsport, the new vehicle promises to be the swiftest and most costly Evo ever.

Its 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder turbo powerplant has been increased with revisedised ECU programming and a new exhaust to generate about 405bhp, although these figures have not yet been concluded by Mitsubishi.

However, what is significant is that it has an estimated 400lb ft of torque, which will make the car considerable more useful compared to the previous FQ-400, which was has the Mitsubishi Evo VIII as it foundation.

The car will be easier to drive, according to Mitsubishi, because not like the old FQ-400, it does not have a clutch for racing. The typical manual gearbox can take the energy, even though the vehicle will not be offered with the dual-clutch SST transmission.

The potency and torque will make the car to reach 60mph in around 3.5 sec, about 0.6 sec quicker compared to the Evo X FQ-360.

The vehicle received a new body kit with extra cooling intakes and openings, plus a bigger hood intake and cooling slots for the brakes at the rear. The brakes are also improved, with six-pot calipers at the front, and the car receives fresh 18-inch alloy wheels.

Of course, this comes at a price. It is reported by Mitsubishi that the vehicle will cost between $67,100 (€53,000) and $74,560 (€58,900), a $21,620 (€17,085) increase compared to the FQ-360. And the company is arranging to manufacture only 100 of these vehicles, although if the demand is substantial, they can build more.
