Mitsubishi is upping the stakes once more with an even quicker Evo VIII – this time packing 400bhp. The car is a celebration of 30 years in the UK, and will be limited to a UK-only run of 30 cars. Sales are scheduled to start around the end of the year, with prices between £40,000-45,000. Among the changes are new turbo and manifold, six-pot front brake callipers, and a new clutch and flywheel. Mitsubishi UK had looked at a 500bhp version, but the price would have shot to over £50k.
