Even when receiving a midlife facelift in , that characteristic was not improved. Indian manufacturer Hindustan had a joint venture with Mitsubishi that started Therefore, in MHI sold U.
JDM versionthe American market version will have slightly more. Two versions of the car are offered in the U.
The other version is the GSR which has a 5-speed manual transmission system. It also features Mitsubishi's new sequential semi-automatic six speed SST twin-clutch transmission with steering-mounted magnesium alloy shift paddles. A five speed manual gearbox will also be available. Links to related articles.

Electronics industry in Japan. The Evolution VI received new bodywork yet again, with the most easily noticeable change being within the front bumper where the huge fog lights were reduced in size and moved to the corners for better airflow.
Yet another special edition Evolution VI was released in December The Evolution VII was based on the larger Lancer Cedia platform and as a result gained more weight over the Evolution VI, but Mitsubishi made up for this with multiple important chassis tweaks. The biggest change was the addition of an active center differential and a more effective limited-slip differential, while a front helical limited-slip differential was added.
The introduction of the Evolution VII also marked the first time an automatic drivetrain was included within the model lineup—the GT-A. Seen as the 'gentleman's express' version of the visually similar VII GSR and the RS2, the GT-A model was only produced in and had the following distinguishing interior and exterior specification: The most distinguishing feature was a smooth bonnet with no air-grills on it at all and the revised front bumper.
Although offering inferior cooling capabilities, the bonnet was designed to give a cleaner line through the air with less air resistance at motorway speeds.
Interior could be specified with factory options of a deluxe velour interior, full leather or the Recaro sports seats. The GT-A interior was different in that it had chromed door handles, a different instrument panel to show the gear selection and chrome edged bezels around the speedo and tach.
The GT-A also had additional sound deadening installed from the factory and the engine manifold and downpipe had been engineered to be quieter. The 5-speed automatic gearbox had what Mitsubishi called "fuzzy logic", which meant that the car would learn what the driver's driving characteristics were like and would adapt the gear change timings and kick down reactions accordingly.
Originally a one off model, sales were so successful in the U.
The new Evolution also sported chrome housing tail lights and head lights. The aluminium roof panel and other reductions in body weight have lowered the centre of gravity to produce more natural roll characteristics. However, the internal components for the American versions were largely stripped-down versions of the specifications for the Japanese Lancer Evolution VIII.
The American and GSRs are without the helical limited-slip front differential and 6-speed manual transmission. The US spec RS models, however, do have a front helical limited-slip differential. The boost, timing, and tuning are also significantly lower than its Japanese counterpart, allowing it to adhere to the strict emissions regulations of the United States. Starting inthe US model Evos were also fitted with a rpm limit on launching in 1st gear to protect the drivetrain.
Furthermore, the US versions of the Lancer Evolution VIII — were given bulkier rear bumpers than their Japanese counterparts to accommodate US safety laws in the form of the metal rear crash bar. All Evos have lightweight aluminum front fenders and hoods. The basic RS Edition does not come with power windows, locks, or mirrors, an audio system, rear wing, sound deadening material, map lamps or an anti-lock braking system. The MR Edition also received engine updates and reliability changes, the engine updates include larger turbo diameter mouth, updated cam profiles, lighter balance shafts and changed from single wastegate solenoid to dual solenoid.
Interior updates included black suede Recaro seats with higher side bolsters, carbon look dash trim, and MR badging on center console. Mechanical changes saw S-AWC rear diff changes, a larger oil cooler core, ion coated piston rings, reinforced cylinder head and 5 layer head gasket compared to the 3 layer. According to Mitsubishi Motors of North America info from evolutionm. In the production sales for the GSR was 7, which is the model year. In production sales for the GSR was 1, and for the RS was for a total of 1, for the model year.
In production sales for the GSR was 2, for the RS wasand for the MR was for a total of 4, for the model year.
Subtleties unique to each model accounted for variations in acceleration, handling and top speed. The RS excluded features standard on the standard, SE and MR models stereo system, power windows and locks, rear wiper, rear wing, trunk lining and sound insulation.
Although the RS is the lightest of the group, the RS did not manage to outperform the standard IX and the MR around a road course even if only by fractions of a second. This was purported to be due to the lack of a rear wing on the RS.
In a drag race, the three models are all about even. The RS model was produced for rally and racing teams who wanted a platform to build a race car from.
