Mitsubishi unveiled the Prototype X, a concept version of the upcoming 2008 Lancer Evolution X, at the Detroit Auto Show earlier this year. From these spy shots of the Lancer Evolution X testing in America, you can see that the production version will remain very close to the Prototype X concept.
The Mitsubishi Prototype X has a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine that produces 300 horsepower and has a 5-speed manual or sequential-manual gearbox. The same engine is expected for the 2008 Mitsubishi Lancery Evolution X.
The production version will make its official debit at the Frankfurt Motor Show in September, with sales to begin in Japan in November. The car will hit UK dealerships in February of 2008.
