The Lancer Evolution is a four-wheel-drive turbocharged performance four-door based on Mitsubishi's successful World Rally Championship cars. Three models of the Lancer Evolution are available, the Evo RS, Evo VIII, and Evo MR. All come with a 271-horsepower turbocharged engine, four-wheel drive and a sports suspension. Practically ready to race, the Evos benefit from stiffened body structures. All are fitted with a special front fascia, a big rear wing, and a rear-window wiper, plus sports seats and special interior features. The Evo RS comes with 17-inch Enkei wheels and high-grip P235/45WR17 Yokohama Advan tires. In addition to the features on the Evo RS, the Evo VIII gets an active center differential switch and Brembo brakes with sport ABS and EBD, plus more convenience features. The MR Edition adds a six-speed close-ratio gearbox, 17-inch BBS forged wheels and other features. New for 2005 is an Evo MR named after the home-market club racing sedan Mitsubishi introduced in 1970.
