Mitsubishi has released the first official shots of the production Lancer Evolution that will debut later this year at the Tokyo Motor Show. The high-performance version of the new Lancer compact sedan will be a step up from the last generation. We don’t know much about what’s under the skin, other than it will feature “Super All Wheel Control,” or all-wheel drive, a 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine, a six-speed automated manual transmission and, of course, that crazy front grille. We can’t guess on horsepower, but the previous generation had 286 hp. Can they top that? Do they need to?
