There’s no mistaking the Lancer Evo VIII MR (“Mitsubishi Racing” version) for anything other than a rally-bred sedan born to do four-wheel drifts around corners. And because the competition hasn’t been sitting idle since the first Lancer Evos hit the ground running, the rivalry that extends from street to rally stage has evolved (pun intended) the VII MR into a better car in every way. The huge rear wing, the vortex generators mounted to the aluminum roof (to lower the center of gravity), the suspension specially tuned to provide harder cornering without shaking your fillings out—they’re all specifically engineered to allow the MR to go harder and faster than the rally-inspired competition. Revisions to the turbocharged motor and all-wheel drive system have also improved launch and grip, turning out incredible numbers that are awfully close to high-end sportscars that don’t have four usable seats and a trunk. The Lancer Evo VIII MR’s ninja-like reflexes and nearly telepathic driver feedback add up to one of the finest entries in this exclusive club.
