The Mitsubishi Lancer EVO makes its final farewell, with the limited production Final Edition on display at the LA Auto Show. The most powerful EVO ever, only 1600 of them will be offered.

Sad but true, the EVO is over for now. But at least Mitsubishi is giving it a good send-off with a very special limited edition that’s a lot more than a few stickers and trims. And I’m talking about more power and handling hardware.

It’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four gets uprated to 303 horsepower and 305 pound-feet of torque. That power comes in at 6,500 rpm with the torque coming on around 4,000 rpm. The engine is essentially the same from the hardware standpoint, though it gets gets sodium filled exhaust vales to make it a bit more robust. It still does come with only a 5-speed manual, but has a short-throw shifter.

The suspension gets Bilstein shock absorbers Eibach springs all around and the Final Edition of course features Mitsubishi’s Super All Wheel control. Braking also gets a boost with two-piece Brembo brake rotors up front.

And all that power continues to go to the ground through one of the more sophisticated all-wheel drive systems out there for a car like this. Mitsubishi’s Super All-Wheel Control system offers up t three drive modes, “Tarmac,” “Gravel” and “Snow.” Though few owners are going to drive this car in the wet frozen white.

Special exterior touches are here which include all the expected things like Final Edition badging. Gloss black comes to the roof, bumper center and hood vent while some nice dark chrome Enkei wheels are set off with like accents at the grille.

Inside it has a blacked out headliner, window and door pillars, as well as the sun visors and grab handles. Red accent stitching flows throughout on the seats, steering wheel, and pretty much everything else you grab onto. And most importantly, there’s the serial number plaque which has your number from 1 to 1600.

Car number one however is spoken for, auctioned to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. The auction started on November 11th and ended Saturday, November 21st at the Coronado Bay Resort in California.

Pricing for the 2015 Lancer Evolution Final Edition starts at $37,995 and is based on the GSR trim grade. It comes in four colors New Pearl White, Octane Blue, Rally Red, Mercury Gray. With available accessory packages you can push the price to well over $40,000.

This is of course before the dealer adds their own profit sticker. And expect that. While Mitsubishi dealers aren’t used to high-demand vehicles and customers coming in for a hot product, most will want top dollar for the 2015 Lancer Evolution Final Edition. And they are on the lots, right now.
