The 2010 Mitsubishi Evolution X FQ-400 is a high performance four door luxury car. You need to get your head around that shocker straight off the bat because it’s BMW M3 money and this, even with its whistles and bells, is still a tuned Lancer. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, colloquially known as the Evo, is a high-performance version of Mitsubishi Lancer, manufactured by Mitsubishi Motors. There have been ten official versions to date, and the designation of each model is most commonly a roman numeral.
The Evolution X FQ-400 features a Turbocharged Incline-4 engine with fuel injectors, stainless steel piping that delivers high performance. The capacity of the engine is 2000 cc and it delivers an output power of 430 bhp and 387 lb-ft torque at 3500 rpm. It reaches the speed of 60 mph in 3.7 seconds and the top speed is about 155 mph. The Evolution X FQ-400 features 6-Speed manual transmission and the gear shifts can be performed easily and quickly even at higher speeds.
The exteriors feature the automatic headlamps, mirrors and stylish body structure. The interiors feature the remote central locking, 30 GB hard drive, Bluetooth, DVD satellite navigation system, instrument panels, leather seats and sporty steering wheel. The Evolution X FQ-400 features 18-inch lightweight nine spoke wheels with Bilstein Shock Absorbers that ensure smooth and comfort driving. The wheels are wrapped with Toyo Proxes R1R tires and it features sealed disc brakes with piston calipers that give a good grip and handling of the car even at higher speeds.
Mitsubishi’s 4B11 receives four new high-flow fuel injectors, a new hybrid turbocharger that reduces lag, an upgraded intercooler to handle the additional boost and a full 3 inch stainless steel exhaust that spits the spent gasses out of a centrally mounted tail pipe. The result is a peak output of 403 HP and 387 lb-ft of torque. Enough thrust to move the FQ 400 from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.8 seconds.
Handling is improved because the chassis now sits 30 mm lower to the ground thanks to the new Eibach springs and Bilstein shock absorbers. The FQ wears stylish new 18 inch lightweight alloys wrapped in very sticky Toyo Proxes R1R tires.
