Lancer Evolution 8.5MR

Any news on the 8.5 MR? There is information on the Japanese Mitsubishi Motors site. But its in japanese, ahhaha. And anyone know if Mitsubishi is really going to discontinue the Lancer Evolution at 8.5? Rumors are that they are renaming the line Colt Evolution, but i am not sure, there are some pictures around the net.

That's the first I've heard of it myself, however, I think 'Colt Evolution' has a certain ring to it, dont you?

hahah, does have its own certain ring. But where will all the numbers go? Do we have to start at Colt Evolution I ??? The 8.5MR is supposed to be released soon, or has already been released in select countries. I am not sure. But it officially runs 300horses under the hood. With slightly better aesthetics, like a black and grey interior colour scheme instead of the ugly current blue and grey.

Once you hit 100 posts I believe it changes to CF regular. Once you hit 500 posts you can make it whatever you want.

I bought "Motor Trend" and they have some rumors surrounding the Evo 9, so I doubt they are stopping at 8.5. They also have and Evo 8 RS, which is stripped down to reduce weight, suspension is tightened, etc.
