hhmm..talking about the EVO IX..v1p3r,wolf,gray,satan crazy and myself had been to see the car..well cant say much about it as we were totally floored..the silver colour suits the car the best..a few specs..well its the jap version,hence is running 286bhp mivec engine which the company claims to be the highest power to displacement ratio of any 4 cylinder engine in the world,generates 41.5kgm of torque @ 3000 rpm,0-100 in 5.9 sec,ACD (active centre differential),twin scroll turbocharger,AYC (active yaw control) among other features..

the cars are on display to gain some critical feedback for the launch of the new car called "CEDIA" which should be on indian roads by february 2006..

we did take some wonderful pics of the car,in addition to which we got the car started(its got a lovely and throaty exhaust note i must add),video recorded the revs climbing at insane speeds,video of the wonderful gear throws which are bloody short,we even got a few pics of the engine and also got to remove the air filter and check it out..whew..that was quite a lot(not to mention the quality of a few parts specially the plastics seemed to be a big let down)..will post the pics and videos shortly..well it would cost around 40 lakhs to import the EVO to india not that its worth at that price but thats what it costs through the legal dealership imports..

They claimed that??? The R1 and ZX-10R produce close to 180bhp from a 1 litre engine, that too in NA form. Also the Evo undergoes the FIA mulitpication factor of 1.4 for turbocharged engines...

SBK: 180 bhp/litre

Evo IX: 286/2.8 = 102.1 bhp/litre

Evo VIII FQ 400: 400/2.8 = 142.85 bhp/litre

The bikes win! What is Mitsu talking about?!

You do mean:

EVO IX: 286/2.0 = 143 bhp/litre

EVO VIII FQ 400: 405/2.0 = 202.5 bhp/litre

No I don't. I mean 2.8. The FIA specifies a multiplication factor of cubic capacity x 1.4 for all turbocharged engines, as compared to no multiplication factor for naturally aspirated engines.

Thus, 2.0 x 1.4 = 2.8

An Evo in the showroom is nothing - you should see it on track - phwoooor -it sounds and moves like sin . Read about it here:

My bad, slipped my mind. I realised my folly only an hour after I posted, but was too lazy to edit my post.

But, is the FIA multiplication factor used even while comparing road going cars? Or is just to provide a level playing field in motorsport?

And, is the multiplication factor 1.4 or 1.7? Lot of discrepancy on the internet.

well one difference is the alloys the ones posted earlier are running on BBS whereas the ones u have posted seem to be running on ENKEI's right..as far as the engine bay goes i dont see any difference to the car we had a close look at in bangalore except that cable which is running on the head though it doesnt make much of a difference..

@mclaren and nitroxx; please elaborate....except for the noticeably different (opposite) placing of the ABS pump (i'm guessing that means that the pic given by nitroxx shows a LHD EVO) and a silver pipe from the exhaust manifold of the LHD evo (which, again, methinks is a oxysensor or something), what's the difference..???

c'mon guys, don't keep me in suspense; please explain...

This is actually the 2006 edition if I'm not mistaken. Anyways, the car was awesome. The seats were awesome too. And the BBS looks much better than the stock Enkei wheels.
