Automotive media and car enthusiasts the world over have long considered the Lancer Evolution to be one of the best - if not the greatest - 4-door sports sedan of all time.

Slotting between the Lancer Evolution GSR and the top-flight MR Touring models is the exciting all-new limited edition 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution SE - the SE standing for "Special Edition," which borrows many of the best features from both models to create what may be the ultimate Evolution.

Key performance components carried over from the top-of-the-line MR edition to the SE version include the ultra-high performance suspension package that employs Eibach springs and Bilstein shock absorbers, two-piece Brembo front brake rotors with remarkable stopping power and Mitsubishi's lightning-fast Twin Clutch-Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) that allows for split-second gear shifts via either steering wheel paddle shifters or the shift lever without a clutch pedal.

Gone are the small (GSR) and large (MR) wings atop the rear deck lid; like the MR touring model, the new Evo SE makes use of a small, less conspicuous lip spoiler. Other highlights include brightly illuminating HID headlights and a choice of four colors - Graphite Gray, Wicked White, Phantom Black and Octane Blue.

Heated cloth RECARO seats and exclusive "SE" badging round out the Lancer Evolution SE's unique packaging, one that provides a very high degree of speed and agility in a visually more discreet and affordable package.

While remaining true to the core values that have made the Lancer Evolution synonymous with thrilling performance, the next-generation 2010 model offers new premium features and user technology options for a more refined driving experience.

The 2010 Lancer Evolution showcases the latest performance and handling technology, including an all-aluminum 291-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged and intercooled engine and the Super-All Wheel Control (S-AWC) dynamic handling system. S-AWC regulates the drive torque at each wheel by controlling a network of advanced dynamic handling technologies including Active Center Differential (ACD) 4-wheel-drive, Active Yaw Control (AYC) rear differential, Active Stability Control (ASC) and sport ABS brakes. A helical gear-type limited-slip front differential is used.

The 4B11 DOHC in line 4-cylinder engine, based on a reinforced cast-aluminum cylinder block, employs a direct-acting valvetrain for reduced weight and MIVEC variable valve timing is used on both the intake and exhaust camshafts. The rear-located (firewall side) stainless steel exhaust manifold helps improve overall weight distribution.

A shark-nosed front end inspired by jet fighter air intakes, a distinct wedge-like profile, and crisp and taut lines highlight the Lancer Evolution's signature face and profile. New for 2010 are updated larger side air dams, tail lamps with black extensions and a short pole 200 mm antenna. Its unique front end, aggressively sloping hood with integral air scoop and engine heat outlets, boxed fenders and 18-inch wheels impart the Lancer Evolution with the look of the street-wise sports machine.

The Lancer Evolution features its own distinct suspension system, including inverted struts in front and a rear multi-link configuration, with numerous forged aluminum components to help reduce unsprung weight. The 18 x 8.5-inch wheels (Enkei cast-alloy on the GSR and BBS forged-alloy on the MR) are shod with large (245/40R18) tarmac-grabbing Yokohama ADVAN asymmetrical performance tires at all four corners.

Adding a dash of even more comfort and civility, the 2010 Lancer Evolution features many new revisions for improved everyday driving. A new high-contrast multi-color LCD instrument meter enhances visibility while a leather-clad parking brake lever with chrome release button adds a premium touch. The MR model receives an additional premium touch - Phantom Black interior accents.

Reflecting the tastes of the ever-broadening Evolution customer base, a hands-free Bluetooth cell phone interface system is now standard as well as an MP3 auxiliary input jack for all models, while available User technologies include a Rockford Fosgate audio and navigation system with music server.

Standard safety features include an advanced dual front air bag supplemental restraint system (SRS) with occupant sensors, standard front seat-mounted side-impact air bags and side curtain air bags, plus a driver's knee airbag.

Three other Lancer Evolution models will be offered in the U.S. for 2010: the GSR with a five speed manual transmission; the Lancer Evolution MR that is equipped with a 6-speed Twin-Clutch Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) - an automated manual transmission with magnesium steering wheel shifter paddles and a console shifter - Bilstein shock absorbers and Eibach springs, two-piece Brembo front brake rotors, BBS forged-alloy wheels and HID headlamps; and the MR Touring model, more comfortably equipped for everyday use with a power glass sunroof, leather seating surfaces, heated front seats, rear lip spoiler, insulated front windshield glass and improved sound insulation.
