Held every year in Las Vegas, the SEMA Show is all about aftermarket parts, tuning accessories, and extreme modifications. This year’s event, to be held between November 3-6, 2009, will see an array of companies showing off myriads of custom made proposals. It goes without saying that Mitsubishi’s Lancer EVO will once again be one of the most popular subjects among tuners. We’ve still got about three weeks ahead of us before the show, but until then, hit the break to check out a dedicated high-res gallery with some of the customized EVOs that appeared at last year’s SEMA.

As is common this time of year, Mitsubishi has launched the 2010 model year version of the Lancer EVO X for the Japanese market. Changes for the new model year are limited to the beefier side skirts, the use of new plastics up front that are said to weigh 1.5kg or about 3.3 pounds less than those they replace, a new color LCD screen between the speedometer and rev-counter with more functions, improved insulation and some minor tweaks to the interior trim.

In addition, for the 2010 model year, Mitsubishi said that it is dropping the five-speed manual gearbox option from the top-of-the-line GSR Premium Edition that will be available only with the six-speed twin-clutch SST transmission. In Japan, prices for the 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X begin from 3,150,000 Yen (about $35,420 or €24,100) for the base RS model.

New Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X FQ-330 SST: 329HP, 0-100km/h in 4.4sec

slkz83 New Mitsubishi Lancer EVO X FQ 330 SST: 329HP, 0 100km/h in 4.4sec
The British always liked to fettle around with the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution and the tenth generation model is no exception. Now they have come up with yet another higher-power version of the Lancer EVO X that goes by the name FQ-330 SST. This F….g Quick (honestly, that’s what it stands for) combines the upgraded FQ-330 engine to the 6-speed Twin-Clutch Sports Shift Transmission. Under the hood, the 2.0-liter turbo engine benefits from a bevy of improvements.

These include an ECU re-map along with the addition of a high performance exhaust and downpipe, an intercooler piping kit, racing suction pipe, and upgraded CAT, all of which help deliver an additional 36 bhp and 22 lb ft over the FQ-300 SST, for a total output of 329bhp at 6,500 rpm and 437Nm (322-lbs/ft) at 3,500 rpm.

The result is a 0 to 100km/h (62mph) sprint time of 4.4 seconds, or 0.3 seconds faster than the FQ-300 SST, and a top speed of 250 km/h or 155mph.

In the UK, the FQ-330 SST is available immediately for order. Buyers can choose among four different colors – Cool Silver (M), Orient Red (M), Lightning Blue (P) and Phantom Black (P), all of which are included in the basic price of £35,999, which is £3,000 more than the standard FQ-300 STT variant.
Standard equipment:

Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC)
18″ Enkei alloy wheels
Brembo braking system, including 2-piece front brakes

VIDEO: Mitsubishi Colt Flies 100 Feet Into the Air, Lands on Building Rooftop!


This is one of those stories that has you scratching your head in bafflement and asking yourself ‘how the heck did this happen?’. Not that all of your questions will be answered, but according to reports from the German media, the 23-year-old driver of the late 1980′s Mitsubishi Colt (also known as the Mirage in certain markets) lost control of the car in the Bavarian town of Stadtprozelten and somehow used a nearby railroad embankment as a jumping platform to literally fly almost 100 feet (about 30m) into the air landing on the rooftop of a building!

According to the German police, the driver that suffered serious injuries from the accident was under the influence of alcohol. And while that may explain how he lost control of the vehicle, we’re still puzzled to as how he actually managed to fly onto the rooftop.
