2006 Mitsubishi EVO IX

The Evo 9 has been long awaited in the sport compact world. This new model boasts 287HP still coming from a 2.0L powerplant. The secret is the garrett turbo producing 19.5 pounds of boost.
The evo 9 has few visual changes from its brother the evo 8. Lightweight wheels and an aggressive stance complete this monster. 0-60 comes in under 5 seconds and the top speed exceeds 155MPH. This is one of the hottest sides straight off the shelf.

The 2006 Lancer Evolution features a standard two-liter DOHC 16-valve I-4 intercooled turbocharged engine, which is enhanced this year with variable valve technology (VVT). This Mitsubishi Innovative Valve timing and lift Electronic Control (MIVEC) system utilizes a VVT sprocket to optimize valve timing relative to the engine condition. This technological advancement, combined with enhancements to the vehicle's turbocharger, produces higher torque and better response for improved engine performance across the Lancer Evolution IX's full rpm range. The improved powerplant reaches 286 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 289 foot-pounds of torque at a very low 3500 rpm.

The Evolution IX MR features a rally-tuned fully independent suspension that also utilizes Bilstein" monotube shock absorbers. Full-time all-wheel drive with an active center differential (ACD) provides improved steering response and better traction. Three ACD modes are provided - tarmac, gravel and snow - to enable quicker controlled response for changes in road conditions. The Lancer Evolution also features front- and rear-limited slip differentials, and four-wheel ventilated BREMBO(TM) disc brakes to help control the beast.
