A tribute to the last Mitsubishi Evolution

Earlier this year Mitsubishi announced that the 10th iteration of the Lancer Evolution would be their last. Japan’s rally car for the street is officially being phased out, with production ending in Japan, and we’re going to miss it terribly. But Mitsubishi are sending the Evo out in style, by releasing one last ‘Final Edition’ version of the car, along with a tear-jerker video to farewell the turbocharged, all-wheel-drive wonder as it rolls down the production line.

The ‘Final Edition’ will be limited to a run of just 1,000 cars, and is based on the GSR model with the five-speed manual transmission, but comes with performance goodies like Bilstein shocks, Eibach springs, Recaro seats, Brembo brakes, and more.

A sign of the times, Mitsubishi says the Evo “will be replaced in spirit” by a high-power, hybrid SUV. So in other words it won’t really be replaced at all.

For now, say goodbye to the Evo X by watching the final Japanese production video below – and be thankful Subaru still makes the WRX STI – but for how much longer?
