The Lancer Evolution VIII FQ330

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII FQ-330

 

As if the Mitsubishi Evolution VIII was not exciting enough and the FQ300 version left its drivers wanting more, Mitsubishi Motors UK has further 'evolved' the Evolution VIII to its latest, most powerful and well equipped form - the FQ330.

As its name suggests, it’s fast - its 2-litre turbo-charged engine delivers a mighty 330 bhp. A car not for the faint-hearted.

Based on the latest incarnation of Mitsubishi's highly successful rally-bred champion, the Lancer Evolution has become a cult car of the decade. Its name represents the ultimate in saloon car performance, combined with state-of--the-art technology and the reliability that is a hallmark of Mitsubishi.

The eighth manifestation of the Evolution was launched at the Autosport Show in January this year. It immediately set new standards in its class for performance and price and was available from Mitsubishi's nation-wide Ralliart dealer network and sold with a comprehensive warranty package.

Seizing the opportunity to develop both the car and the market to which it appeals, Mitsubishi UK launched the 300bhp FQ300 version by the time the Evolution VIII went on sale in March.

Immediately sales of the more powerful and higher specified model out-grew that of the unmodified Evolution VIII and in keeping with the car's ethos, Mitsubishi now raise the bar once again with the introduction of the FQ330.
