Situated between the GSR and top dog MR, the EVO X Special Edition delivers a hard-hitting array of MR parts for a less-than-MR price tag.
The goods carried over from the top-of-the-line MR include the ultra-high-performance suspension package that employs Eibach springs and Bilstein shock absorbers, two-piece Brembo front brake rotors with remarkable stopping power and Mitsubishi's lightning-fast Twin Clutch-Sportronic Shift Transmission.
Gone are the small (GSR) and large (MR) wings atop the rear deck lid; like the MR touring model, the new EVO SE makes use of a small, less-conspicuous spoiler. Other highlights include HID headlights and a choice of four colors: Graphite Gray, Wicked White, Phantom Black and Octane Blue.
Heated cloth RECARO seats and exclusive "SE" badging round out the Lancer Evolution SE's unique packaging. With an MSRP of $36,445, the SE is $2,000 more than a GSR and $5,000 less than a MR.
