Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR GSR CT9A
The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution (informally known as the Evo) is the Japanese brands leader games auto. Construct just with respect to the unibody of the trained Lancer vehicle the Evo is a rally roused turbocharged all wheel drive strong and finely tuned car. The number assignment of the model is most ordinarily a roman numeral and is going to transform into a X
Advancement models preceding variant V were the authoritatively endorsed models for Mitsubishis endeavors in the World Rally Championships Group A class and SCCA Pro Rally Championship. Keeping in mind the end goal to take after these principles the Evolution depends on the same stage as the Lancer however is a great deal all the more capable and the main real part in like manner between the Evo and the Lancer is the unibody. Nine road forms of the Evolution have been created from 1993 up to today. Development adaptations VI VII VIII and IX did not have to meet WRC homologation necessities.
The Evo was initially proposed just for Japanese showcases however request on the dim import market drove the Evolution arrangement to be offered through constrained sort endorsement in the United Kingdom and in different European markets from around 1998 (Evo VVI). Mitsubishi chose to trade the eighth era Evolution to the United States in 2003 in the wake of seeing the achievement Subaru had in that market with their Impreza WRX an immediate rival in other worldwide locales.
Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution History
The current 2006 Evolution (US market) incorporates a turbocharged 286 hp (213 kW) inline fourchamber motor and a fulltime all wheel drive powertrain. Variable valve timing is an Evolution first in 2006 coming as MIVEC (Mitsubishi Innovative Valvetimingandlift Electronic Control). Japanesespec autos were restricted by a honorable mans consent to publicize close to 280 PS (276 hp) an imprint as of now came to when of Evo IV in any case every era of Evos energy has stealthily developed over the promoted number with the Japan spec Evo IX having genuine yield of around 320 PS and different variants accessible in different markets especially the UK have official force yields up to 405 bhp (302 kW). Indeed even standard parts are considered tuned contrasted with different vehicles. For example the flywheel on ordinary autos weighs around 1215 kilograms however the Lancer flywheel measures an insignificant 6 kilos for snappy motor reaction. Sadly the Evo has additionally been advancing into a heavier and heavier vehicle with every era in face of harder overall wellbeing and outflow regulations.
The Lancer Evolution was novel among its rivals in the World Rally Championship in that it is a homologated Group An auto marginally adjusted to have the capacity to race aggressively against WRC class autos. They were effective in the WRC Rallies from 19961999 on account of the Finn Tommi Makinen for securing the drivers titles from 1996-1999 and the assistance of partner Richard Burns for securing the makers title without precedent for 1998. The Evolution however has now been supplanted by the Lancer/Carisma GT and the new Lancer WRC04 yet the Evo still contends in the Group An and Group N classes.
Mitsubishi presented the 2006 Lancer Evolution IX at the 2005 New York International Auto Show The 2 point 0 L 4G63 motor got MIVEC innovation (variable valve timing) boosting official force yield to 286 hp (213 kW) and torque to 289 ft•lbf (392 N•m) however genuine figures are essentially higher. The Evolution VIII initially offered in 2003 would create dynamometer readings of around 225 WHP and 225 ftlbs. WTQ with a flywheel power rating of 271/273 individually. The Evolution IX regularly pulls 255 WHP and 250 WTQ on a dynamometer a distinction of 30 torque not by any means contemplating the drivetrain misfortunes.
The Lancer Evolution IX models (RSIXMR) change in their execution abilities. Nuances novel to every model record for varieties in increasing speed taking care of and top velocity. The decontented RS is the idealists auto achieving 60 mph in a negligible 4.4 seconds contrasted with 4.5 for the marginally heavier IX and MR models (which have power windows back spoilers and Xenon lights). Weight reserve funds of more than 60 pounds give the RS an inconspicuously more keen taking care of responsiveness that offers it some assistance with shaving parts of a second off the lap times of the IX and MR on an indistinguishable course. The premium cost of the top model MR is not spent futile if velocity is a need as the MRs sixth forward rigging permits it to achieve 165 mph at 7000 rpm contrasted with 157 at 7000 in fifth for the RS and center situated IX models. (Note Data important to U.S. model particulars)
The IX keeps all the Evolution VIII MR treats like Bilstein stuns a 6 speed manual transmission vortex generators BBS combination wheels Recaro container seats Brembo brakes MOMO controlling wheel and an aluminum rooftop. Extra amendments from 2005 incorporate a closer apparatus proportion for the 5 speed an upgraded front end a more productive air dam (the most observable element are the two little oval pipes to cool the inter cooler funnels) and new back guard with a diffuser under surface to smooth out the wind current leaving the auto.
Each of the three models are accessible in the US. All models utilize the same 286 hp (213 kW) motor. All models utilize a front and back LSD (Limited Slip Differential) and an ACD (Active Center Differential)
* Standard/GSR changed 5speed standard model
* RS reexamined 5 speed aluminum rooftop gage pack negligible inside
* MR 6 speed Bil stein mono tube stuns aluminum rooftop gage pack
Three models are likewise accessible in Europe and Japan. Albeit all models utilize the same 286 hp (213 kW) motor the torque contrasts starting with one model then onto the next. The GSR produces 295 ft•lbf (400 Nm) of torque while the RS and GT produce 300 ft•lbf (407 Nm).
* RS updated 5 speed aluminum rooftop gage pack insignificant inside LSD and a titanium magnesium turbine
* GT updated 5 speed this is essentially the RS mechanically however with a percentage of the GSRs components (principally inside pieces).
* GSR 6 speed Bilstein mono tube stuns aluminum rooftop gage pack AYC (Active Yaw Control) and twofold racket radio (this is generally proportionate to the MR)
A 2500 piece constrained version Evolution IX station wagon was discharged in Japan not long after the cars introduction. It utilizes the back end of the Lancer Sport back wagon joined onto the car. Two trim models will be presented the GT with a six speed manual transmission and the GTA with a 5 speed programmed. Other than the station wagon back end updated seats and some little chrome plated trim pieces the autos inside is the same as the vehicle. There is some civil argument about whether or not the wagon will be acquainted with the United States and different markets.
Mitsubishi likewise built up the Evolution MIEV in light of the Evolutions IXs frame yet with 4 electric motors associated with the four wheels as a proving ground for the Mitsubishi In wheel Electric Vehicle (MIEV) cutting edge electric vehicle. The in wheel motors utilize an empty do not development to find the rotor outside the stator not at all like other electric engines where the rotor turns inside the stator The aftereffect of this is a lighter motor which interprets into lower unsprung weight in a framework where the motors are mounted in the wheels. Each inwheel motor delivers a force yield of 68 hp in this way giving an enormous joined yield of 272 hp similar to that of normal gas controlled Lancer Evolutions. The auto accordingly contended in the Shikoku EV (Electric Vehicle) Rally 2005.
