At the 2007 LA Auto Show when we spoke to the Mitsubishi PR they told us that the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo GSR will carry a price tag around $30k while the Evo MR will start around $36k. Well, Mitsubishi has announced the estimated pricing for the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X and it seems like the Evo is going up market.
For the base GSR model with a five-speed manual transmission, pricing is estimated at $34,000. The range topping MR model with the new Twin Clutch-Sequential Sportshift Transmission begins at $39,000.
Officials say that these are conservative estimates at the moment and are hoping that the final pricing will come in $1,000 less for each model.
The previous Lancer Evo IX sedan started at $28,679 and went up to $35,189 for the MR trim.
The new 2008 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution GSR and MR are both powered by a 2.0 liter 4-cylinder 16-valve DOHC MIVEC engine that produces 295 horsepower and 300 ft-lbs. of torque.
