<B>2003 Lancer EVO VII - Announcement!</B><P><B>Los Angeles, California<BR>January 4, 2001</B><P> <IMG SRC="http://www.mitsubishi-motors.co.jp/EVO/image/style_photo0.gif"> <P> <BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, Arial">quote:</font><HR>Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America, Inc. announced today that the Lancer Evolution, a rally-tuned model previously unavailable in North America, will be coming to U.S. showrooms next year. The announcement is sure to please enthusiasts who have hungered for the high-performance version of the popular new Lancer sedan. Last year, the Lancer badge, already renowned in global markets, burst onto Mitsubishi's North American product line-up to great reviews and strong sales. This compact sedan replete with big-car features lets customers know that a low sticker price doesn't require a compromise in comfort, fun, or durability. Evolution is a standout in the U.S. market's Lancer family. <P><B>Lancer Evolution: It's Coming!</B> <P>The magnificent Lancer Evolution will appear in U.S. showrooms in the spring of 2003. "The Lancer EVO is our chance to stir the blood of every enthusiast and build our reputation as a major performance player in this country," said Pierre Gagnon, president and chief operating officer of MMSA. "It will cast warm light on every product we sell. When we say we build spirited cars for spirited people, everyone will be listening." Building on the Lancer sedan's robustly designed unibody, Mitsubishi's engineers pulled out all the stops, taking "The Bionic Man" approach to reinvention of a stronger, faster and smarter performance car. <P>This unrivalled compact, super-sedan speaks volumes to Mitsubishi's technological prowess, and World Rally Championship winning heritage. Expect the Lancer Evolution sedan we'll see in U.S. showrooms to rumble with a 2.0 liter turbocharged, inline-four developing more than 250 rabid horses, gravity-defying four-wheel-drive handling, eye-ball displacing Brembo brakes and a sub-30K sticker price.<HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>It looks like my dream-car is coming! I will take one in black please. <IMG SRC="http://www.swedespeed.com/ubb/biggrin.gif"><P>-Drew<p>[This message has been edited by InDy (edited 01-04-2002).]
