The one they showed at Detroit recently was apparently very close to what the production one would be like. Specs and everything.

It will basically look like the picture posted up.

Long gone are the aggressive & rally inspired looks best represented on the Evo 6. How I will miss it. To me,the look of the car must be first & foremost functional. The Evo's of that era is functional in respect that it was meant to be a family saloon car & the fact that it could kick a supercar like the murcielago's ass was a bonus. Therefore to me lies the appeal of the car. The new 10 looks like it's trying to be a sports car ala Aston Martin. What the Evo has become in short is a Saloon car chassis dressed in a sports car with a rallying engine. Therefore I say this is one confused car.

yup its gonna look like this..and this is a REPOST!!

In Detroit, Mitsubishi Motors hints today at the next generation of its iconic supercar, the much anticipated and all-new Lancer Evolution. Consistent with MMCs impeccable sporting credentials, its high performance engine, outstanding dynamics and sharp design will appeal to enthusiasts worldwide. As such, Prototype X also demonstrates the depth and breadth of the new Lancer sports sedan family, ranging from entry model (1.5 l in Europe) right up to the all-new Lancer Evolution, the range topping supercar.

Coming Soon: (R)Evolution

Heir of the Lancer 1600 GSR of the 70s or the Lancer EX 2000 Turbo of the 80s, the Lancer Evolution has lived up to its namesake by greatly improving with each successive generation since 1992. (Lancer Evolution VIII was the first to be officially offered in the European market).

As Prototype X demonstrates, the Lancer Evolution will soon make perhaps the largest leap in overall capability seen between two generations of this model. The next Lancer Evolution will offer major gains in handling dynamics and technology while maintaining the kind of thrilling turbo engine performance that has made the model a legend around the world.

Although clearly based on the new Lancer and sharing its distinctive shark-mouth grille opening, Prototype X features a unique front end, rear fenders and decklid. Making a maximum-performance statement, Prototype X looks the part with its boxed fenders, aggressively sloping hood with integral air scoop, 20-inch alloy wheels with massive brakes and the high-tech LED turn signals in the sideview mirrors.

Inside, the deeply contoured bucket seats are upholstered in high-grip suede-like material An electronic lap counter hints at the cars weekend club racer capability, while the red LED light band that spans the doors and the dash surface might suggest a customizing idea to future customers.

The user technology in Prototype X previews what will be available for the next Lancer Evolution. While not all design features and content seen on Prototype X will make it to the production vehicle, the overall design will carry through.

Next-Gen Power

The engine powering Prototype X and the next Lancer Evolution is a turbocharged version of the all-new aluminum 4B11 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC engine used in the 2008 Lancer sports sedan.

It will yield the highest power rating ever in a Lancer Evolution model. (Since development continues, final engine output figures will be revealed at a later date.) Significantly, the newest Lancer Evolution will have less differentiation from market to market than the previous generations.

The new models aluminum engine block is a significant 20 kg lighter than the iron-block 4G63 engine used in all previous models, which aids weight distribution. In addition, its orientation (exhaust located on bulkhead side) allows for improved placement that helps to lower the center of gravity.

Although the new Lancer Evolution engine block is lighter, it was designed from the outset for high-performance turbocharged applications. High inherent strength has been achieved partly through over-engineering of the open deck block, and the use of large water jackets and metal areas around each siamesed cylinder bore. The reciprocating assembly of the turbocharged 4B11 is capable of withstanding high levels of boost.

Automated Manual Transmission

Prototype X is equipped with the automated manual transmission with magnesium steering wheel paddle shifters that will be available on the next Lancer Evolution.

This new transmission will offer lightning fast, paddle-shift actuated shifting when desired, along with offering a fully automatic mode. This unit is not a conventional torque-converter automatic transmission, but rather a true auto-capable manual similar to that used on some of the worlds most notable performance models.

For stick shift purists, the next Lancer Evolution will still offer a conventional 5-speed manual transmission. With the 4B11 turbo engines stronger torque performance, a 5-speed will provide optimal acceleration response.

Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC)

The next Lancer Evolution, while still providing the levels of engine performance that appeal to this models loyal core customers, will expand dynamic capability with the new Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) system.

Combining intelligent full-time four-wheel drive with stability control, S-AWC is a further development of the advanced full-time 4WD technology first introduced on the new-generation Outlander SUV for 2007.

In Prototype X and the upcoming Lancer Evolution this next-generation system combines an Active Center Differential (ACD) with an Active Yaw Control (AYC) rear differential and Active Skid Control (ASC). The AYC rear differential has never been offered on a Lancer Evolution sold in the U.S. market.

The combination of all these technologies will help the Lancer Evolution make optimal use of its considerable torque and also ensure the highest level of dynamic capability and stability ever in this model. At the same time, the new technology will further enhance the exhilarating driving performance character that customers have come to expect from this model.

The next Lancer Evolution once again features its own suspension system, replacing steel stampings of the standard Lancer with race-proven forged aluminum components. Due to the high rigidity of the new Project Global platform, the Evolutions suspension can be tuned to provide a more compliant and stable ride than before without compromising handling performance a trait that is expected from a true world-class performance sedan.

With exciting performance* assured Mitsubishi will be able to equip the upcoming Lancer Evolution to be a markedly better car for everyday driving. User technologies introduced on the new Outlander and Lancer models will also be offered in the next Lancer Evolution, including a premium Rockford-Fosgate 650-watt (max.) audio system, HDD navigation system with music server, Bluetooth, steering wheel audio controls, and an automatic climate control system.

Mitsubishi is remaining tight-lipped about power and torque figures from the turbo MB11 for now, but we expect horsepower to increase to 320 hp from 286, while torque will climb to 325 pound-feet from 295. This power should enable the Evo to sprint to 60 mph in less than 4.5 seconds. More big news comes from the availability of a six-speed, dual-clutch transmission like Volkswagen's DSG unit. Shift paddles are mounted on the steering wheel, while a switch on the console delivers three different shift modes. For purists, a six-speed manual gearbox option will also be offered. The Evo X's most significant piece of high-tech kit will be the addition of Mitsubishi's Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC) technology. It begins with the most elaborate form of the current Evo IX's all-wheel-drive system, which includes Active Center Differential (ACD), Active Yaw Control (AYC) and Active Stability Control (ASC). S-AWC adds active suspension, active braking control and active steering to enhance the Evo's AYC for quicker steering response and faster cornering speeds. Simply superb In April 2006, we sampled an early Evo X prototype fitted with only half of the S-AWC package, featuring upgraded AYC and active braking control.

I guess this is what you mean by additional info right Dewa? hahhaaa 320HP and 325 poundfeet of torque! 0 to 60mph about 4.5sec. zerotohundred? well about the same time eh?

It's got active everything control, which in turn results in Passive Driver Control.

Might as well drive using the Force.
