This year's "Car of the Year" final on Dave TV announced that the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X has won the Sports category "Car of the Year". The new car was up against some very tough - and in some cases very expensive - competition, including the new Volkswagen Scirocco and the Porsche 911.
In a public vote the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X won out with its sophisticated, yet menacing looks, and all the power and handling to back up its rally-bred credentials. The panel of judges, including Mike Rutherford, Alistair Weaver, Ben Oliver and Nick Gibbs found that the car had "awesome amounts of power" and that the new Twin Clutch SST gearbox was excellent.
The viewing public seemed to agree as well, voting the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X into top slot ahead of all its rivals.Published 17 November 2008
