The Mitsubishi Evo 9 was launched on March 3, 2005, in the European market. On the next month, this car was exhibited in the New York International Suto Show.
Lancer Evo 9 Specs and Feature
The car comes with 2.L or 1,997 cc with 4G63 Inline-four engine (comes with the MIVEC technology). Besides, the Lancer Evo 9 is also supported by the improved turbocharger design that boosts its power output at its crankshaft to 214kW; 287 hp and also 289 lb-ft (torque).
This car brings the Grand Sport Rally for some markets, Rally Sport, Special Edition and also the Mitsubishi Racing. Those types come with various capabilities and performances. Each model has unique subtleties especially in acceleration handling and also top speed.
However, the RS model excluded the standard feature that we find on the MR and SE which as power windows, a stereo system, rear wiper, trunk lining, rear wing as well as the sound insulation. This exclusion results in lighter weight more than 60 lb or 27 kg. All models come with the same fuel capacity as in Evo 8 with 14 U.S gal or 53 L.
Even though RL is the lightest models among others, the performance doesn’t outperform others. It is due to the lack of rear wing. Those three models get the same drag race that all of them are capable to be 97 km/h between 4.2-4.5 seconds and this can run to be 1/4 mile. It is very great to see the RS model was produced for racing. So, if you have such hobbies, then this car is not that bad to try. But of course, don’t expect the same performance as the current race models. It was made years ago with popular technology at that time. Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 is still such an amazing car since we still find Lancer Evo 9 for sale in California, Texas and other cities as well.
Let’s see the next generation of Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 10.
