Mitsubishi has announced plans to offer the Lancer Evolution X FQ-440 MR in the United Kingdom.

Designed to celebrate the brand's 40th anniversary in the UK, the special edition is available exclusively in Frost White and comes nicely equipped with bi-xenon headlights and 18-inch forged BBS alloy wheels.

Interior changes are limited but the model features Recaro leather seats, a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel, GPS navigation and a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system.

Power is provided by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that has been equipped with an HKS turbocharger, high-flow fuel injectors and an optimized ECU. The car also has a Janspeed intake, an intercooler piping kit and a sports exhaust system. Thanks to all these modifications the engine develops 440 bhp (328 kW) and 412 lb-ft (558 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed dual-clutch Sports Shift Transmission which should ensure the special edition is an absolute rocket.

Speaking of performance, the FQ-440 MR has also been equipped with Alcon brakes, Eibach coil springs and a lowered suspension. There's also a data recorder which can record details such as driving style, performance, vehicle diagnostics and present its location.

Production will be limited to 40 units and pricing starts at £50,000 ($82,725 / €59,995).
