Evo X

24 posts in this topic

I read in this weeks autocar, scooby sales and hugely reduced as people are waiting out for the new evo. Apparently people are all ready putting their names (deposits?) down for the new Evo 18 months before it is due to be released!

Do you think this is worth doing? Can you imagine there being a waiting list for the car when it comes out? If they make it a bit nicer inside I can see myself liking it!

Yep, the magazines have finally turned on the Impreza and calling it dated and crude. Strange how only a couple of months ago they had no issues with it and now its suddenly aged. I imagine a lot of that is to do with the interior and probably apathy towards the new nose. Its always been a fairly crude (but very effective) mechanical package.

So you're saying the new EVO 18 is only months away? grin.gif

Oh dear! I've fallen in love twice this week!! First with a Reef Girl and now the Evo X.

Plenty of pics of both exterior and interior here: web page

Both in red!

I'm sure that it will be mega fast but i can't help thinkin that it looks like someone who has been punched in the mouth....

....True. It's not going to win any prizes for elegance but plenty for raw power. Looks far better than any Ford ST, Vauxhall VXR etc imo.

nooooo no no i didnt mean it like that, the dodge doesnt deserve that advert, because it doesnt inspire that response

but seeing the evo x approaching fast in ur mirror surely would?

I went in to my local Mitsubishi dealer today and he tried to insist that he knew every Mitsi vehicle coming out in the next 2 years and he had never heard of the Evo Concept-X!! I left him to Google it and give me a phone call. Fecking dealers are all the same.

They can get rid of the silver/white trim for a start. Then make somewhere for the number plate so it doesn't look like you've attached it with cable ties and then, they can make the wing mirrors more in proportion with the car.

Then give me a free one for my constructive critism.

Oh dear! I actually dreamt about the Evo X last night. I was told they could ship one in for a test drive and that if I liked it I could have one next year (2007)....Then I woke up!

Somehow they've managed to ruin it, it looks so similar but it seems to have lost all the imposing stature of the concept... crazy.gifcoffee.gif

That Lancer looks 'orrible!! (IMO).

The Evo Concept X is quite a different car if I'm correct.

Auto Express have the first pictures of the production version. A bit toned down from the original concept but still aggressive looking. Interestingly it will be available with a paddle shift gear box. Auto Express Article

I wonder what the paddle shift is like in them. Mitsu never fitted a 'fly by wire' accelerator on these because they couldn't get one to work any better than the traditional cable method so if they have gone for a paddle shift I'd imagine its because they have made one that genuinely works well. Might make clutches last longer now!

Those production car version pics are really disappointing. The pics I posted earlier in the thread and in another thread in this forum, show a much better quality car imo. Even the paint job looks cheap by comparison. I don't doubt the car's mechanical credentials though!

"One of the best transmissions in the world"

Thats a brave statement if I ever saw one, have Mitsibushi really built a better twin clutch box that the all-mighty VAG Group??!

The new GT-R is going to have a dual clutch too. Wonder if its the same one as in the Mitsi...?

I would personally like to see an EVOX coupe for 30,000GBP....Any thoughts???

There is just something a bit iffy with a four door sports car IMO.

I'm nowhere near a mid-life crisis, no children, but technically the car looks a superb alternative to the 135i coupe and the S3, 330coupe, audi TT and is in the ballpark in terms of price.
