History, development and general characteristics

Mitsubishi introduced the fifth series Lancer Evolution in January 1998 after a new class was opened at the World Rally Championship – the “World Rally Car” class. Here, the competing cars no longer had to meet homologation rules; they would only have to respect the Group A standards.
When compared to the previous Evolution models, the Evo V received several mechanical improvements. When the car’s production ceased in January 1999, 8.000 copies of the Evo V had been built.

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
