Click the image above for more shots of Mitsubishi's Evolution X.

We're counting down the days before our departure to Japan for the Tokyo Motor Show, and as we mark each passing date with a red "X" it takes on a special meaning.

Car and Driver's initial review of the Mitsubishi Evolution X has already given us some of the specs, including the new blown two-liter's rating of 295 HP and 300 lb.-ft. of torque in GSR and MR guise. Now, Mitsubishi has released three images showing the JDM-spec Evo's exterior, and one pic that reveals what U.S. buyers can expect to enjoy while sitting in the new Evo MR's cockpit.

Check the gallery below for more.

      If they offer this with a spoiler-delete option like the curent car, I'm all over this.

      hee hee, it looks like an angry fat kid with tiny little feet!

        Especially if it skews radar beam reflection

      anyone notice the missing clutch pedal in the interior shot? or am i missing something?
        • 7 Years Ago
        Yeah, If you look closely at the gearbox, it's an AUTOMATIC!!!
        • 7 Years Ago
        The MR has the SST (dual clutch, DSG like) transmission.
        • 7 Years Ago
        DSG style gearbox, my friend.

      "...including the new blown two-liter's rating..."

      Hmmm, if we were car guys we might think this think was supercharged. Good think we are and know all the Evos are turbo charged. =)

      The only thing wrong with this car? It's not on sale yet.
      • 7 Years Ago
      I hope that the 5.0 sec 0-60 time posted by the C&D review isn't representative of the actual USDM car. Their review made the dynamics sound a bit depressing as well (compared to the old Evo).

      It makes me wonder what other designs Subaru has comming since their flagship is such a mess.

      VERY GOOD POINT.

      I've seen the new legacys, tribecas, and imprezas, so ugly, I'm afraid to see what's next.
      • 7 Years Ago
      That ugly huge box on the front (the grill) has got to go. I'm sure it won't matter to the boy racer fast 'n' furious crowd though.
        • 7 Years Ago
        You want them to get rid of the intercooler?

      First off... those comparing the WRX to the EVO are retarded... The STI competes with the EVO... and the latest shots of the STI on the track show a design way more performance oriented than the EVO. The STI's flares are twice as big as those on the EVO and the whole body screams performance... The Evo has a pissed off front end... and that's it.

      Tagg: Expensive? for cars that pretty much nothing the under the price of a corvette can touch? And they fit 5 people with a trunk and can be driven no matter what the weather? Why would you point out the observed gas mileage of the two and then point out Hwy for an Escape? There are more Escapes sold in 1 month than 5x the number of STIs AND Evos sold in a year. Which has a bigger negative impact? And it's not like the Escape has a gas guzzler tax anyway.

      Aman... we must be looking at different Legacys and Tribecas because the 08 models are pretty good looking.

      Sure these are fast cars but they are a little expensive if you ask me. Both the Evo and STi take premium fuel, get lousy mileage (previous gen both around 19mpg observed) and are essentially compact cars. Why do these get off the gas guzzling hook while a SUV that gets 20mpg (Escape non-hybrid) is blasted?

      On another note , I would love to have an Evo but would wish the STi on my worst enemy. It makes me wonder what other designs Subaru has comming since their flagship is such a mess.
      • 7 Years Ago
      What a great looking car! I can't believe how big Subaru dropped the ball with the WRX redesign and how good this Mitsubishi looks.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Actually the Evo line has one of the highest residual ratings in the industry. At one time I think it was holding at 72% of it's original price.
        • 7 Years Ago
        I completely agree. While Mitsu strived for a better car, Subaru degraded it's Impreza by creating an ugly Corolla with no new technologies, at least not in the mainstream cars.

        As on the Mistu, I wish they had good residual value on their cars so they could lease better, because thats what i do, i lease.
