Check this out

Modified version of the Evo 8, produced to "celebrate the 30th anniversary of Mitsubishi's entry into the UK market."

QUOTE (webwombat.com.au)

"The 405 horsepower (298kW) Evo is wild. Completely insane, if you like.

Able to outpace cars like Porsche's Carrera GT and the Pagani Zonda from 0-100km/h, the new FQ400 Evo VIII churns out 298kW @ 6800rpm and 481Nm @ 5000rpm...."



...46,999 is the asking price, which, at the time of writing, converts to roughly $117,000 in Australian currency, which is double what the stock Evo VIII costs just a tad cheaper than the Zonda, which fetches $1,200,000 here.

This has nothing to do with a Zonda. You really can't compare only by 0-100 and horsepower things. if the Zonda costs that much it's for a reason, basically we have here a overclocked Lancer with Ralliart racing parts.

This car is nothing but a tuned and warrentied car that is extrememly overpriced. I can do the same thing to that car for less than 50g.

And am I the only one that doesnt liek the AWD system of the Lancer?

No, can't say I'm a fan either. AWD drive means no burn outs, and in that f*cking thing you'd bloody want to. tounge.gif Other than that, it sounds and looks freaking awesome.

No, I like AWD in general, I just dont like the EVO's AWD system because of it torque split. The EVO has a a torque split of 50% to 100% front tires and a 0% to 50% in the rear. I like Subaru's system better becuase it gives torque split of 0% to 50% at the front wheels and 50% to 100% to the rear.

I have, however, pulled off an AWD burnout in a friend's girlfriend's Subaru Legacy. But it started off in gravel and ended quickly after I hit the road.

yeah, once you get traction in an all wheel drive, it will just jerk you, even if the vehicle doesnt have much power. i remember gunning it down a gravel road in my mom's buick rendezvous when she had it, hitting pavement, and it just grabbing the road. a friend of mine crashed his mom's maxima doing the same. he went off the road, hit a driveway, flew a way, bounced, then came to a stop. in the ditch about 300 feet from the driveway. the force knocked the mirrors off and set off the airbags. from what i hear, it was one hell of a ride.


and damnit, why dont they bring these things to north america sad.gif . i wouldnt buy one, but really wouldnt mind a test drive.

That Subaru torque split allows you to do a powerslide on a rundabout. tounge.gif believe me, tested.

Trust me, when you are driving a base Subaru Legacy with less than 200hp you are not going to be doing many burnouts.

BTW if anyone has ever driven one of them, can you agree with me that their auto trannies suck?

Evo's AWD is alright, they can get sideways relatively easily, especially with AYC. They do awesome hellies as well, it was an evo that held the record for the most consecutive donuts. the driver had to stop because the G's were causing g-loc!

It actually mainly uses off-the-shelf HKS parts wink.gif
