Mitsubishi has announced that their new-generation high-performance 4WD sedan, the Lancer Evolution X (10) is to be used as course car for the Japanese round of the FIA World Rally Championship later this month.

The Lancer Evolution X will run on Rally Japan in Group N specification and include various new features that have been developed in close collaboration between the Motor Sport Division/Technical Development Department of Mitsubishi Motors and Ralliart Inc.

Included in these new developments is the integration of the roll cage into the body of the car, with extensive reinforcements resulting in the car's strength and stiffness being drastically upgraded from the normal road-going version. Purpose-built components have been used for the running gear and brakes with specially-developed drivetrain parts featuring a constant-mesh close-ratio gearbox.

The exterior of the Lancer Evolution X Group N will use accessories usually found on all high-performance vehicles and familiar to all rally enthusiasts including sump-guard, floor guard with fuel tank protection and mud flaps. In the cockpit additional safety features have been added including five-point safety harnesses for the crew with bucket seats and a competition steering wheel.
