The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution is a one of a kind high performance sports sedan that represents the ultimate in road licensed Mitsubishi vehicles. The Evolution showcases several outstanding technologies, including a 291 hp, 2.0 litre DOHC, turbocharged-intercooled engine; Super All Wheel Control (S-AWC), a vehicle dynamic control network that provides an extraordinary level of control at individual wheels; and the brilliant 6speed Twin Clutch Sportronic® Shift Transmission (TC-SST).

The TC-SST is an automated manual transmission capable of executing lightning quick gear changes with no drop off in engine power. It features both a console-mounted shifter and magnesium steering wheel paddle shifters and offers manual and fully automatic modes. By allowing drivers of all abilities to shift rapidly up and down through the gears, the TC-SST delivers satisfying acceleration while also returning superior fuel economy, due to its high efficiency power transmission mechanism.
