The Mitsubishi Prototype X revealed at the 2007 Detroit Motor Show was a preview of the styling which appeared on the 10th generation of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution.

Although clearly based on the new Lancer and sharing its distinctive shark-nose grille opening, the Mitsubishi Prototype X features a unique front end, rear fenders and decklid. The Prototype X looks the part with its boxed fenders, aggressively sloping hood with integral air scoop, 20-inch alloy wheels with massive brakes and the high-tech LED turn signals in the sideview mirrors.

Inside the Mitsubishi Prototype X are deeply contoured bucket seats upholstered in high-grip Alcantara. An electronic lap counter hints at the car's weekend club racer capability. The technology featured in the Mitsubishi Prototype X previews what will be available for the next Lancer Evolution. While not all design features and content seen on Prototype X will make it to the production vehicle, the overall design will carry through.

The engine powering Mitsubishi Prototype X – and the next Lancer Evolution – is a turbocharged version of the new aluminum 4B11 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC engine used in the 2008 Lancer.

Prototype X is equipped with the automated manual transmission with magnesium steering wheel paddle shifters that will be available on the next Lancer Evolution. This new transmission will offer lightning fast, paddle-shift actuated shifting when desired, along with offering a fully automatic mode. For purists, the next Lancer Evolution will still offer a conventional 5-speed manual transmission. With the 4B11 turbo engine's stronger torque performance, a 5-speed will provide optimal acceleration response.
