Akshay that red eve you saw belongs to biren pithawala, the guy who was at the speedrun this year and did pretty well. You guys may not remember but the first time the speedrun was held at kharghar this evo was silver and he had crashed it before that, there was a big portion near the front wheel that was done up (the kind when you have to level the tin work and repaint it).

Yup. It got repainted after the SpeedRun. Looks hot now. Infact ive yet to see a hotter Evo than this one in person. And im saying this, after spending good half of my life in Japan.

Haha. Yup. I was following him in my car. We were on our way to Shivaji Park. He's got superb control on the car. I've yet to sit with a better driver as yet.

Here is a pic which was clicked around January this year.

Default Which EVO is this?

Which EVO is this? Spotted it at the Santacruz station junction on S.V.Road quite early in the morning, a few days back. Looked awesome, and the exhaust note at idle was nice too.

Either ways, it's got a dent on it's front left fender. Looks SWEET nevertheless.

May be it's the Evo VIII.
Look at the following pics and notice the front bumber. Now comparing it with what flyingspur clicked, it sure looks like an Evo VIII.
