2007 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X Group N WRC Rally Edition

Mitsubishi released the first informations about the Lancer Evolution X Group N, the WRC Rally version of the high performance 4WD sedan. The Evo X Group N will be used on the Japanese round of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).

The Course cars, referred to as the "Double Zero" and "Zero" cars, have to travel through the course before the competing vehicles, 30-minutes for the Double Zero car and 15-minutes for the Zero car, to check track conditions making sure that everything is ready. The Lancer Evolution X Group N as a course car will have the job of running the course ahead of the competitors to check the road conditions in order for the race to go smooth.

and yes the handling of a car is more important than the acceleration to a point

if you cant keep your speed up then the acceleration and top speed isn’t all that important

thats why cars like evo and GTR can beat super cars around nuremburg

yea true you cant tune every engine the same way you can a performance 4 cylinder. those engines are certainly built for the extra juice... but you could forge the cylinders.. it’d cost some bucks but then you could add all the power and the engine wouldn’t mess up... but that could cost around 10k or more on a viper just for the forged cylinders

Didn’t know about the Viper but the 0to60 bit is true. Besides this is a rally car where the 0to60 is only a minor factor.

But you can’t put turbos or modify every V8 or V10, like some of the V8s that you normally buy at the price of performance four cylinders because the engine walls won’t be able to handle the hp, in other words at full speed you will probably blow the head or completely rupture the engine.

one flaw with gorjup or whatever his name is... a viper is a 8.3 liter v-10...

not a six liter but besides that 0-60 isn’t everything... in fact maintaining speed with high lateral g’s such as what the evo is capable of is probably more important.

well in a race thats not just a straight line anyways....

the sti may win 0-60 but thats not everything... hell otherwise people would just put twin turbos on v-8’s and v-10’s and beat the out of every other car but the problem with that is those cars are meant for just that... acceleration and straight lines

And baddist, you don’t have to know who Iam. "That either makes you g*y or a kissa*s." that is what I meant on my former comment.

baddist, a slow selling car does not mean a bad car. You dumb piece of sh*t. Some guy named Tango said the car would sell well, not me, fu*k face.

And why do you always act like you have a poker shoved up your a*s every time I say something about badest? That either makes you or a kissa*s.

Oh, and just because a car doesn’t sell in the US does not make it a bad car. You see the sun doesn’t shine out of your a*s, there are other countries which have cars.

dont know who the f*** this ak47 is. he apparently doesnt know that mitsu is one of the slowst selling cars in the states..jeez come on for march they sold less than 9200 cars.

Badest and Thereal, you dumbasses. In case you forgot, this is a rally car where lots of factors are taken into account rather than the 0to60. Besides I doubt either of you can actually shift fast enough to achieve the speed whether it was 4.8 or 5 seconds.

Gorjup actually made a decent point unlike you two morons.

.....The Japanese i mean

i think u guys r loosin it u cant compare lambos to the or the wrx they r in a legue of their own

lets be fair guys. there are only three cars out there with proper street creds:the incomparable skyline gtr’s, the wrx’s and the evo series. the evo series are exceptional especially when it comes to winding roads courtoeusy of bilsteins.
And lets be honest, there are plenty of cars out there with bigger enginesbut absolutely crappy perfomances

gorjup the evo 6 actually goes 0-60 in 4.8 secs says so much bout ur supposed research go home an read up before u try to quote ur flawed facts

wat the heck u talkin bout all time pretender the STI is the king an everyone knows it wrx or nothin evo 4 dead

the evo looks gud but the STI is the all time pretender to the throne.all hail subaru

firstly as i said b4 lambo is a light weight incomparison to an enzo, veyron especially the slr and the S7 so wat u talkin bout? also sti doesn’t make a gsr model only evo does

the lambo is better than anythin and with a 8.5 litre engine it is better than an evo or sti gsr and all wheel drive

who would spend 30 grand on a car jus to make it fast thats just dumb, the sti is faster with it being stock

the sti would destroy this evo

evo x only goes 0-60 in 5secs that is slow if u didn’t notice my 93 supra even does 0-60 in 4.6 secs an since its an old model that shud tell u sumthin this evo an the evo 9 did 0-60 in 4.7 actually so the 9 is better than the ten

evo VI has 4.6 from 0-100 kmh. with 20000€ (30000 dollars) u can transform lancer evo 9 into a beast that needs onley 3.9 sec till 100kmh. @badestofthebad u think this is crap? japanese engineers got more than 300 hp from 2 liter engine! dodge viper has 6 liter engine and 500 hp imagine what would any elite european-asian carcompany do with 6 liter engine if chasis would be strong enough to hold on such power
