In spite of the fact that the Subaru WRX out-lived it, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo actually has a lot of fans. Furthermore, there's a developing interest for bringing in the models the US never got. Maybe obviously, the assembly enlivened all-wheel-drive execution car holds its worth well. Doubtlessly, that is on the grounds that models immaculate by Fast and Furious-propelled mods are getting more earnestly to discover. In any case, on the off chance that you keep up it well, a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo can be a shockingly solid presentation vehicle.

The main US-market Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution:

Similarly as with the past gens, it had AWD and a 2.0-liter turbocharged 4G63 four-chamber motor. For the Evo VIII, said motor put out 271 hp and 273 hp. That was more than the 2002 WRX, however somewhat not exactly the 2004 WRX STI.

Mitsubishi didn't simply add more ability to transform the Lancer into an Evo, however. The vehicle got a rooftop and vented hood produced using aluminum, Recaro sport seats, Brembo brakes, and a carbon-fiber back wing. In spite of a force shortage, JDM Cars and Driver positioned the Evo VIII in front of the WRX STI. Despite the fact that its inside was somewhat modest, the vehicle had "splendid controlling" and "clairvoyant dealing with."

For 2005, Mitsubishi likewise delivered the MR model, Car and Driver reports, which accompanied a couple of important updates. Rather than the 5-speed manual, it got a 6-speed. Bilstein dampers were incorporated, similar to a restricted slip differential and refreshed dynamic place differential. Motor yield was additionally improved, to 276 hp and 286 lb-ft.
