Mitsubishi unleashed their Lancer Evolution X yesterday in Japan, but its motor show debut will be in Australia late next week. The Australian International Motor Show (AIMS) receives the honour of being the first motor show to display the Evo X, beating even the Tokyo show to the punch.

"The 2008 Lancer Evolution is a complete performance package," Mitsubishi Motors Australia CEO Mr McEniry said. "It has a powerful new engine and also inherent user technology to ensure incredible flexibility and grip, and enhanced handling and dynamics."

AIMS might not be the first show on everybody's mind but they have been making a name for themselves over the past few years with international debuts such as the VW Polo GTI and the Holden Efijy Concept. This year AIMS will be first to display the Evo X, new Toyota Landcruiser, Volkswagen Touareg R50, Lotus Exige Sport 240 and some yet un-announced Holden and Ford concepts.

The model launched in Japan on Oct. 1 with price tags of JPY3.5mil.($30400)for MT, JPY3.75mil.($32600)for DSG and JPY3.0mil.($26100)for competition base. Although its styling is not elegant enough, I think this is one of the best value for money hot sedans in the world.
