Say Hello To The World's Fastest Mitsubishi Evo

Say Hello To The World's Fastest Mitsubishi Evo

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII and IX are arguably the most potent Evo generations ever produced and utilize technology, including torque vectoring, which many current performance cars have only started to use in recent years.

Consequently, the Evo 8 and Evo 9 remain formidable performance sedans and have always been a favorite among aftermarket tuners around the world. While some look to improve not only the straight-line performance of the Evo but also its cornering ability, the tuner behind this build has focused on one thing; creating the world’s fastest Evo at the drag strip.

New, Never-sold 2006 Mitsubishi Evo Draws $100k Bid On Ebay

New, never-sold 2006 Mitsubishi Evo draws $100K bid on eBay

Today, in the "OK, guess it must be worth that to somebody" department, we note that a California car dealer has an eBay listing for a 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, still brand new and never titled, with nine miles on the odometer. Just another day on eBay, right, and just another car that didn't sell, was hoarded, or somehow forgotten in a barn? Not exactly. The top bid as of Wednesday morning was $100,100.

The Evo was a popular car (for a Mitsubishi) in its day, in a cult-of-personality way. And though its run ended with the 2015 model year, a quick inventory search shows there are still around 30 of them sitting brand-new on dealer lots, including the #0001-of-1,600 Lancer Evolution Final Edition, a $70,000 MSRP limited-edition car in Rally Red that a Brooklyn dealer is trying to move for $87,888. Most of the remainders are listed in the $30,000s, however.

Mitsubishi First High-power 638-nm Red Laser Diode With Built-in Lens

Mitsubishi Electric announces Industry's first High-Power 638-nm Red Laser Diode with Built-in Lens - FareastgizmosMitsubishi Electric announced today a high-power 638 nanometer (nm) wavelength red laser diode with build-in lens (ML562H84) offering an industry-leading 2.5W output under pulse operation. This is believed to be the industry’s first built-in meniscus lens. . By eliminating the need for an external collimator lens, Mitsubishi Electric’s new red LD is expected to lead to simpler optical designs, reduced sizes and lower costs for projectors. The light sources for projectors, conventionally mercury lamps, are being replaced with solid-state light sources that offer higher energy efficiency, a wider range of color expression and longer life.

LDs deliver especially high output power, low power consumption due to efficient power-conversion, an unmatched color range due to narrow spectrum, and superior picture quality with high contrast ratio. The new high power 638-nm red LD with built-in lens allows for the external collimator lens to be eliminated and contributes to simplification of the optical design, miniaturization and cost reduction for projectors. The new high power 638-nm red LD with built-in lens from Mitsubishi Electric will be launched on September 1.

1995 Mitsubishi Fto Is Straight Out Of Tokyo Drift

1995 Mitsubishi FTO Is Straight Out Of Tokyo Drift

In 2006, The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift brought into the mainstream a once-popular sub-culture of car tuning that saw vehicles fitted with the wildest chrome wheels, exhausts, paint schemes and interiors imaginable. This 1995 Mitsubishi FTO GPX currently up for grabs on Car Sales in Australia is one of the victims of that era.

Initially produced exclusively for the Japanese market and later exported to markets including the UK, Australia and New Zealand, the FTO was a popular front-wheel drive sports car that can now be purchased on the cheap.

Mitsubishi Triton And Nissan Navara Co-development Plans Already In The Works

Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara co-development plans already in the works

The next-generation versions of the Mitsubishi Triton and Nissan Navara pick-ups will be a product of the alliance between the brands, with the strengths of each to be played off against one another to create a sort of mutant mega ute.

But don’t expect a Mitsussan Triara or Nisubishi Navton… each of the vehicles will have their own distinct identity – even if they do share the same underpinnings and components, not to mention drivetrains and dimensions – when they’re eventually replaced.

Mitsubishi Small Suv A Must, Operations Boss Says

Mitsubishi small SUV a must, operations boss says

The Mitsubishi ASX may well play in the small SUV segment, and its new sibling the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross probably will, too – but the company reckons it needs an even smaller model to slot beneath those vehicles.

Trevor Mann, Mitsubishi Motors chief operations officer, said he thinks there's space for a sub-ASX model on the company's books.

Mitsubishi: 'old Product Is Hurting Us'

Mitsubishi: 'Old product is hurting us'

There's no hiding it – Mitsubishi has some of the oldest products on the market, and the company's global chief operations officer reckons that's his biggest focus under the stewardship of the Renault-Nissan Alliance.

Mitsubishi COO Trevor Mann told media this week in Sydney that he wants to see shorter life-cycles and more investment in research and development – meaning newer cars that drive up to the standards of the classes in which they compete.

Mitsubishi Operations Chief Says Large Suvs And Sedans Are 'dying'

Mitsubishi operations chief says large SUVs and sedans are 'dying'

Mitsubishi Motors is banking on SUVs as its future, but the company's operations chief reckons that even some of those high-riding models are on their way out.

Speaking with media in Sydney this week, Trevor Mann, global COO for Mitsubishi Motors, said the large SUV could be on its way out – meaning the Pajero Sport could remain as the biggest SUV you can get from the three-diamond brand when the Pajero (proper!) finally bites the dust.

2013-2017 Mitsubishi Outlander Phev Recalled For Engine Fix

2013-2017 Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV recalled for engine fix

The pre-facelift Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has been recalled this week, with 1654 units potentially affected by an engine fault which could shut off the petrol motor inadvertently.

Mitsubishi reports that improper engine software, electric vehicle (EV) software and spark plug specification are the cause of the issue, which could turn off the plug-in hybrid system’s petrol engine unexpectedly during use, limiting the vehicle to electric power only.

Mitsubishi Electric Develops Cyber-attack Detection Technology For Critical Infrastructure Systems

Mitsubishi Electric Develops Cyber-attack Detection Technology for Critical Infrastructure SystemsMitsubishi Electric today announced the development of a cyber-attack detection technology that quickly identifies network traffic that deviates from predefined normal commands in the control systems of critical infrastructure. The technology is the first in the world, as of May 17, 2017, to define the detection rules based on the normal commands for each operational state of the control system and to interpret deviations from the normal commands as attack. The cyber-attack detection technology developed by Mitsubishi Electric contributes to infrastructure stability by reducing the detection time and ensuring minimal influence on control-system processes that must finish within certain time limits.

The cyber-attack detection technology developed by Mitsubishi Electric detects ingenious cyber attacks disguised as normal commands targeted on critical infrastructure for electric power, natural gas, water, chemicals and petroleum without reducing the real-time control capability, which is expected to help ensure infrastructure stability. Real-time operation is ensured for the control system under our consideration when attack detection is in use because the technology does not involve a time-consuming matching process for suspicious patterns. Commercialization for electric power infrastructure is planned from around fiscal 2018.
