mitsubishi lancer evolution

One can’t deny that the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, or just Evo, is a huge part of automotive history. Aside from its good looks, it has cemented its nameplate in the world of Rally racing, which sparked a tremendous amount of following globally. It’s among the superstars of JDM (Japanese Domestic Market), so to speak.

That’s why the news of an Evo X Final Edition in 2015 broke the hearts of many, while some clung on to the hope of a heroic comeback. However, Mitsubishi is about to hammer the final nail in the coffin at the upcoming 2017 Tokyo Motor Show. The soon-to-be unveiled e-Evolution electric crossover concept will be the end of the high-performance turbocharged sports sedan from the diamond brand.

So, to those who have loved the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution since day 1, here’s a trihute to one of the greatest rally cars to ever roll the streets. Consider this as an ode to its undying legacy.
