After a very long wait, the world renowned Lancer Evolution has finally arrived in Canada. Koji Soga, President and CEO of Mitsubishi Motor Sales of Canada Inc. takes delivery in Vancouver of the first boatload of the all new 2008 10th-gen Lancer Evolution.

These “GSR” sports sedans are the first Lancer Evolution models ever to be offered for sale in Canada. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, is one of the world’s best known high-performance vehicles and these customer cars will be making their way into Mitsubishi dealer showrooms early in February.

Perhaps even more exciting is the fact that I will be amongst the first wave of journalists to drive the new car at its official press launch next Tuesday at Willow Springs just north of L.A. A review with photos will soon follow in Sun Media somewhere in Canada. Will let you know when I know.

In the meantime, in next Sunday’s Toronto Sun, some of my photos will be running alongside Drive section editor Annette McLeod’s review of the wicked awesome 2008 Audi R8 supercar. I wrote my own design-focused piece for the February issue of RPM Motoring Monthly. Go get your free copy.
