Check out the hot new very very fast Evo

New Evo

Revv

P.S. It does 0-100kmph in 4.1 seconds. The Gallardo does it in the same time while costing 4 times more.

What a car!!!

Ive always loved the EVOs but this is something else. The specs are performance figures are awesome. Now if if only we could get rid of the limiter.. A high performance car car with great drivability and ground clearance , is really practical for road use. Gallardo 4 times more costly and less GC... I'd say I'd buy this to drive here anyday...

Cheers

Good mother of....The FQ330 is expected to BETTER the 4.4 second time of the GQ300! Whats more this car is selling more than the standard model of the EVO VIII. What I found really impressive was the fact that the chassis could handle the additional horsepower without any modifications. The European boys sure know their cars, whether its making them or choosing between them.

Mitsubishi is raising the bar higher and higher, dont you think its only a matter of time before an EVO IX or EVO X, which pulls in 400bhp? Subaru is going to have its hands full trying to come up with an equally competitive STi.

An EVO with 400 bhp or more would put it directly into supercar territory. Mitsubishi is ever so capable of doing that... Subaru isnt sayin anything now but they might quietly be cookin up somethin too

Well guys the Evo VIII is the last on the Lancer platform.... there wudn't be any EVO IX actually.

Keep ur fingers crossed, cuz the next high-performance rally derived Mitsu wud be one helluva road-machine. Meanwhile people... forget 276 hp and 300 hp EVOs... just drool over the FQ330 while it lasts.
