Feel like hearing the background score of TOO FAST TOO FURIOUS as I was reading the review and seeing the pics. Amazing Review. Its a sports car and hence it should have the traditional sports paint touch than the average sedanish colors. Ferrari red or Yellow would have done justice to make this a head turner even for layman who would otherwise miss this for a car with mods and overhangs. EVO Long Live!!!

Any observations to add from the point of view of a long term owner?

Great pics and video; simply awesome review. Stunner of a car! Want to see a few have the heart for this machine on Indian roads, and soon. The Motordrome guys in Mumbai say they've just recently sold one in town.

Ummm. The ORVM is smaller on the left side so that you don't hit it as you woooosh past things. It's even like that on the W124. Didn't realise that it was such an alien thing!

Edit - Great review.

I'd love to own one in a few years after one or two owners take a massive depriciation hit!

Is that the actual reason? I read up on some EVO X forum that the LHS mirror is smaller to reduce the blind spot. If Mercedes did it, and now Mitsubishi in their ultra-performance sedan, there has to be a logical side to it.

Well, it seems to be one of the reasons among many that I have found after going through a few MB forums. Here are the few other reasons:
  1. The path distance from the eye to the mirror is different for the passenger side & the driver's side, because you don't sit in the center of the car, therefore the dimension of the mirror would need to be different each side to get the desired viewed area. (Square mirror on the left gives a better view for parking etc as it gives a view down the whole side of the car whilst the wider mirror on the right works for overtaking or general driving as it has a wider field of vision.)
  2. Also it has something to do with how the when the cars are parked legally on the street, the LHS ORVM doesn't stick out onto the side walk. I can't give an inference for this as I do not know the parking rules of Europe etc.

Hi Viraat13,

Interesting points. Naturally we had discussed a few possible reasons, but to be honest, it was the variation between the two mirrors being sooo minor that made me question it here.

I like your 2 points above. I had never heard point #2, but it sure does sound like a likely reason for re-designing the LHS mirror housing.

Thanks,
R

To me point 1 makes more sense. The second is just an added bonus. (I assume that the cars have to be parked very very close to the pavement.)


Oh and it's too bad that India and Japan aren't gonna have a tax duties agreement like India and the EU. It would have been great to the the Evo priced in a more reasonable and affordable manner.

Default EVO X to be the last EVO from Mitsubishi

Mitsubishi plans to kill the EVO brand and concentrate on environment friendly cars. The company says that the EVO X will be the last Evo it ever builds.

Its very sad and shocking news for enthusiats like us, who look up to owing this increadible machine some day. For now, I feel depressed and very ANGRY and I must say its the worst decision Mitsubishi can ever make.

I took this photo at 2:57 AM in Kalina, so the car must be pretty quick

Glad to see one on the streets though. Must have just been delivered - given the lack of plates.
