Import Tuner's latest cover car is considered a daily driver by owner Doug Parks. It seems the man was worrying too much about driving the show car he was building for Audiobahn, a WRX, so he purchased a new Lancer Evolution VII for the commute. Funny thing happened on the road to work though, Parks ended up overhauling the entire engine and almost everything else on the Evo. It's more show car than anything else with potential for 700 hp from the Garrett GT35R turbo. And don't expect Parks to carpool either, the rear seats have been removed in lieu of a body-brace kit by L-Con. At least the front seats by Cobra have been re-covered in suede by Stitchcraft. Just what you need for your trip to the office. And no, there don't seem to be any performance numbers yet.
