Mitsubishi is previewing its upcoming new Evo with two show cars: the Concept-Sportback displayed at Frankfurt and this Concept-X, set to be unveiled at Tokyo. While the Sportback is a hatchback, the Concept-X is a sedan and therefore even closer to the new Evolution we'll see in 2007. Built on a new platform codeveloped with DaimlerChrysler, the Concept-X has a 2.0-liter turbo four producing well north of 300 hp, a twin-clutch transmission, a further-developed all-wheel-drive system, and lightweight, all-aluminum bodywork. Best of all, the design leaves the current car's econobox roots far behind.
