2008 Mitsubishi Evo X unveiled

Scheduled to be presented at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show, here are the first official photos of the new Mitsubishi Evo X. Based on the Prototype-X, presented by Mitsubishi in this year’s Detroit Show, it seems that the sport sedan will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that packs 295 hp and it also features a new Mitsubishi four-wheel drive system.

Another new feature of the new Mitsubishi Evo X will be a Twin Clutch SST dual-clutch sequential gearbox. The car will also offer better handling and grip than the current Evo IX, despite being slower. (it goes from 0 to 62 mph (100km/h) in 5.0 seconds). More info when we have the official press release, meanwhile enjoy more photos after the jump.
