Lately it seems like the only news coming out of Mitsubishi is related to tiny electric cars, so we’re extra excited to report the addition of a new model in the Japanese automaker’s lineup that will have car guys rejoicing. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution SE will debut later this year as somewhat of a cross-breed between the TC-SST transmission-equipped MR model and the more entry-level GSR. In essence it will be a GSR model, but with the dual-clutch transmission as well as the MR’s Bilstein shocks and rear diffuser. Also included will be the GSR’s cloth Recaro seats.

And now for the best part: the price. Official numbers haven’t been release yet, but the SE model is tipped to start at just under $36,000, which is about $2,000 more than the five-speed manual GSR and about $3,000 less than the current MR model.

Our Evo has arrived!
