The special model features a bespoke ECU tune, a new HKS turbo, Janspeed exhaust, a special air intake, and an intercooler upgrade.

As the name suggests, the FQ-440 MR produces 440bhp (324kW) and sends the power though all four wheels via Mitsubishi’s six-speed TC-SST transmission.

The FQ-440 sports a set of unique 18-inch wheels and sits 35mm lower to the ground in the front, and 30mm in the back.

Inside the cabin is a chunky pair of Recaro seats and Mitsubishi’s seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system. For those who’re into number crunching, the car is fitted with a data recorder that’s connected to the car’s diagnostic system.

Just 40 Frost White examples will go on sale in the UK, with an asking price of GBP50,000 (around AU$90,000).
