330bhp and dual-clutch SST for Evo X
20 May 2009

Mitsubishi has added the FQ-330 SST to the Lancer Evolution X line-up.

It is equipped with Mitsubishi's "Sports Shift Transmission", which makes it the most powerful Evo X to get the six-speed twin-clutch 'box. It also has an additional 36bhp and 22lb ft torque over the FQ300.

The extra power has been liberated by adding a high performance exhaust and downpipe, an intercooler piping kit, racing suction pipe, and upgraded CAT.

There is also an ECU remap and breathing kit, giving a total of 329bhp and 322lb ft of torque. Acceleration has been improved - 60mph is down from 4.7 to 4.4 seconds.

The car is available in Cool Silver, Orient Red, Lightning Blue and Phantom Black.

The FQ-330 costs £35,999, £3000 more than the FQ-300 STT variant.

    Off-road estate is now bigger, more spacious and available with torque-vectoring all-wheel drive, but is it enough to make its German rivals anxious?
