Brembo brakes and dual exhaust are two of the clues that identity this car despite its camouflage -- the Lancer EVO X, which is one of the most hotly-anticipated vehicles coming out in 2007 for the '08 model year. Mitsubishi's Concept-X, which made the auto show circuit throughout 2006, showed some new styling directions for the vehicle, including a more slanted front end, meaner headlights and gaping front fascia.

Minus the camo, this may be the vehicle we'll see at the 2007 North American International Auto Show, where Mitsubishi has announced it will have the first prototype version of the vehicle on its stand. We'll see in January for sure, as the bigger-but-lighter Dodge Caliber-based Lancer EVO X with a dual-clutch six-speed and new all-wheel drive system will be one for the books.

      The folks here @ autoblog are excellent, but thy've got this the wrong way around. The Caliber is built off a VERSION of the platform that Mitsu is using for it's next Lancer/Evo/Outlander. The new Lancer is NOT based on the Caliber, it is the other way around. Mitsubishi will not base their "halo" car on DC equipment, make no mistake. Platform sharing can be very specific or very broad in terms of what is actually "shared".

      I do not see much of the concept car any more. I hope it is not too bland. Mitsu needs a bold design to seperate it from the competition.

      I hope it will get the optional DSG type trans.

      Muhammed, worrying about it now doesnt make any sense. Wait for the actual car to come out before judging it.

      I strongly feel that Mitsubisihi made the wrong decision by aligning the new Lancer with the Dodge Caliber. It will be difficult to know for sure until final engine details are announced, but if the EVO will use a Chrysler-based engine (even witha Turbo), I can only see more buyers going to Subaru.

      I've always loved the EVO as well as the 4G63 series of engines. With this new version, I fear that Mitsubishi will kill off the EVO, just as they did with the Eclipse. One would think that they would have learned from their mistakes.

      Muhammed....you apparently don't read much on here as the engine in the Dodge Caliber was JOINTLY developed by Chrysler, Mitsubishi, and Hyundai. So, going on that knowledge, Mitsu is not using a Chrysler engine, and Chrysler is not using a Mitsu engine

      It has been verified enough times on different websites and fan forums that the platform is been developed BY MITSUBISHI NOT CHRYSLER! CHRYSLER is BORROWING the platform FROM MITSUBISHI.

      I strongly feel that You, Muhammed, are making the Wrong decision by not even knowing what is going on really. Don't worry Mitsubishi won't kill the EVO. We all know that.
