Mitsubishi has officially announced the 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X. Available in RS ($26,134) or GSR ($30,473+) trims, it comes equipped with a “lightweight 2.0-liter DOHC MIVEC turbocharged engine” that produces 295hp and 300 lb-ft torque. Click here for more pictures.

We’re also especially excited about the new Twin-Clutch SST 6-speed automated manual (think DSG from Audi), though those that prefer a proper snick can still order a 5-speed manual, which is the only option on the RS
