It doesn't take long to realize the Lancer Evolution is built for car enthusiasts. Under the hood, the compact sedan houses a turbocharged intercooled 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that pumps out 291 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque. In Edmunds.com testing, that engine helped the Lancer Evolution GSR sprint from 0-60 in an astounding 4.4 seconds. Do we have your attention yet?
2015 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Puts Elite Performance at your Fingertips
While its quick sprint capabilities are enough to get any driver's adrenaline pumping, there's much more to the Lancer Evolution's performance capabilities than straight-ahead speed. In its base configuration, it is equipped with six-speed dual-clutch transmission with paddle shifters, which sends power to the sedan's all-wheel drive system. The more advanced GSR trim utilizes a five-speed manual transmission.
The Evolution's speed and power are balanced out by 13-inch BREMBO® brakes, an elite brand often used on much pricier sports cars. It sits on 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels, which are wrapped in Yokohama® performance-tread tires. When you're pushing the limits of performance, you can do so with confidence knowing the Evolution has all the equipment to accommodate your need for speed.
