2013 Mitsubishi EVO MR 0-60 MPH

MPGomatic.com takes another stab at the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution MR. We launch a 2013 Lancer EVO MR with the TC-SST twin-clutch automatic transmission. Lets call these runs somewhere in the 4.6-4.7 range. Could it have been faster? Surely. This was my first two, and *only* two attempts at launching this car. I can't afford to break anything, y'know? :) The 2013 Lancer Evolution MR is equipped with a turbocharged 2.0-liter MIVEC inline four-cylinder engine that produces 291 horsepower engine. I love shifting gears the old fashioned way, but the Twin Clutch Sportronic Shift Transmission (TC-SST) shifts faster than any manual trans on the planet. Mitsubishi's "Super All-Wheel Control" gets the power to the ground. Launch control to Major Tom. Sub five seconds? No problem. (this time) Test performed with traction control off, in S-Sport mode. Why did the revs hang after the first run? S-Sport mode is designed for the track. I should have upshifted earlier, but was momentarily distracted by some roadside wild life. Better safe then dead.
