AUTOBLOG NEWS - - Mitsubishi has added a formidable new range-topping version of the Evo IX to its UK roster. This gives Mitsubishi a four-car Lancer Evolution lineup (http://www.mitsubishi-cars.co.uk/evolution/range.asp) in the U.K. now with the FQ-300, FQ-320, FQ-340, and now the FQ-360. The Ralliart-developed FQ-360 is a powerhouse, producing 366 bhp and 363 lb-ft of torque -- the latter arriving at 3200 rpm. The increased power is achieved through the use of a high pressure fuel pump, a high-flow catalytic converter, and a bit of ECU reprogramming.

No changes were deemed necessary to improve the car's dynamics. As such, the steering, suspension, 4WD system and brakes are all standard Evo IX fare.

Visually, exclusive Yokohama-wrapped 5-spoke Speedline wheels, a new carbon-fiber lip spoiler, and the roof-mounted rear vortex generator (like the one on the NA-market MR) identify the car as an FQ-360. Inside, a storage space in the center stack has been eliminated in favor of a Ralliart gauge pack.

The FQ-360 also boasts a full complement of driver amenities such as A/C, Recaros, power windows, alarm system, stereo, and 4 airbags. Their presence certainly doesn't hinder performance, as 60 mph arrives in just 4.1 seconds. Estimated top speed is over 160 mph.

Dealers are taking orders for the FQ-360 now, and its stated retail price is Ј35,504. Deliveries begin in September. Mitsubishi will officially unveil the car next week at the British Motor Show.
