Available in two specifications and with a top speed of 157mph, power output for the new Evo VIII is 276bhp as standard. However, for those customers who like a little more under the bonnet the FQ-300 performance package, developed in conjunction with the Mitsubishi World Rally Team, boosts power to in excess of 300bhp.

The Mitsubishi Evolution series is all about continuous enhancement using performance technology and the new Evo VIII delivers on all counts. Improvements on its predecessor include the addition of Super AYC (Active Yaw Control) and a 6-speed close ratio gearbox; extensive improvements to and tuning of the engine, suspension and aerodynamics; a stiffer body and extensive reductions in weight. The result - the new Lancer Evolution VIII reaches new dimensions of on-road performance and driving exhilaration.

The Evo VIII is the first generation to be given a 6-speed manual transmission. The 6-speed close ratio gearbox has been developed in order to maximise extra torque generated by the revised 4G63 2.0-litre intercooled Turbocharged 4 cylinder, DOHC 16-valve engine. The close ratio set up maximises engine performance throughout its entire range but with improved flexibility at low to medium speeds.
