History, development and general characteristics

In August 1995, the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III came out to replace its predecessors and was even more quickly produced than them.
The new Evo model translated in some power output increase and both aesthetic and mechanic small improvements.
5.000 Lancer Evo III cars were built in both GSR and RS versions, until production ceased in August 1996.

Body and Design

Like all Evolution models, the third series is a 4-door sedan as well. However, the Evo III was said to appear somewhat more sober than the previous models.
Most noticeable changes are the car’s new side skirts and its new bonnet styling that allows a better air channelling to the radiator, intercooler and brakes.

Lancer Evolution


Lancer Evolution was launched in 1992. Evo, as it is also known, it’s a high-performance version of the popular Mitsubishi Lancer. Evo debuted as 4-door sedan, but a 5-door hatchback version was introduced with the launch of the ninth generation. Intended only for the Japanese market, the high demand abroad turned the model international. Today, Evo is sold in Japan, North America, Europe, Australia, and Southeast Asia. The current series, Evolution X, will be kept in production until 2013.   more
