Only Driven 2 Winters - Original Window Sticker, Keys, and Manuals Long before the common saying for a new and improved object was version 2.0, Mitsubishi was numbering each generation of their performance sedan. True to the term Evolution, this car, which is the 8th iteration of the top of the line Lancer, has seen a number of improvements from the Evolution 7. The Evolution lineup, known as the Evo by enthusiasts, started in 1992, but the US market did not get a taste of the Evo cars until the Evo 8 appeared in dealer showrooms. This car was purchased new by our consignor who is a car enthusiast, and has an appreciation for performance cars. The Evo 8 is a car that to many just looks like a small 4 door sedan that has a big spoiler on the trunk lid. However, eagle eyed enthusiasts know the true performance potential of the Evo, and will definitely spot the front mount intercooler, hood vents, bright alloy wheels, red brake calipers, and large carbon fiber rear spoiler which make the Evo unique. In the right hands, Evo's are known to put down some fast lap times at the track which rival Porsche's, Corvettes, or Ferraris of the same era. Finished in Tarmac Black, this car has a bit of a mean look thanks to the vented front bumper and rear spoiler. The exterior also features HID headlamps, fog lamps, jewel rear lamps (yes Mitsubishi calls them that), chrome tail pipe, and the carbon fiber clad rear spoiler. Misubishi used aluminum for the vented hood and front fenders to help keep weight down as well. The car currently sits on 17 Moda wheels wrapped in Dunlop tires, and comes with the factory 17 Enkei wheels which have Bridgestone Blizzak tires mounted on them. As this is a car that is performance focused, the interior is pretty spartan compared to what many may expect. Heated Recaro seats and a MOMO steering wheel are the only notable items inside the well kept interior. Otherwise, the basics are there; factory stereo, A/C climate control, power windows, power locks, and sunroof. Make no mistake, this car may have somewhat docile looks, but is a performance car that is built to handle well, and possesses a potent engine. This car is a bit of a rarity in that it is unmodified. The powerplant is a 2.0 Liter DOHC Inline-4 that has a Turbocharger worked in for a little extra boost in power. Approximately 270 horsepower was on the table, which is delivered to the ground through an all wheel drive system which has a viscous center differential that delivers power to the front and the rear wheels in a 50/50 manner. A 5-speed manual transmission handles gear selection. The Evo is such a fun performance car, which is sure to put a smile on your face, whether you are in the driver's seat pushing to get your best lap time, or driving to the store. Evo 8's are desirable cars despite currently being about 15 years old, and this car is even more desirable thanks to the low mileage, being unmodified, and having the original window sticker. Make room for this awesome car which can help you with the evolution of your garage, whether you are on evolution 2.0 or a much higher number.
