Sometimes it makes me wonder why people go like “I want an EVO VI” or “I want an EVO IX” and so on and so forth. How about giving some love to the EVO that started it all – the Mistubishi Lancer Evolution I.
Featuring Mitsubishi’s legendary turbocharged 4G63 engine tuned from the factory to produce 247PS and 309Nm of torque, mated to the All-Wheel-Drive system from the Galant VR-4, all stuffed into the lightweight Lancer “itlog” chassis, this was the car that changed the game in automotive history, and was the beginning of one of the fiercest motorsports rivalries ever known to man with it’s competitor – the Subaru Impreza. If you wouldn’t consider that special, then I don’t know what will.
The owner of this car saw just that, and I’m sure that after local tuning house DZ Racing has whipped their magic on it, this car, as seen in the 2013 Trans Sport Show, has got more than enough to make the original Evo designers at Mitsubishi proud.
Having said all that, do you now have more love for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution I?
