Mitsubishi Lancer Evo

By Brian Long




Description

The definitive international history of one of the world’s most successful rally cars. Covers every Lancer model - including all special editions, and Dodge, Colt, Plymouth, Valiant, Eagle, Proton and Hyundai variants - from 1973 to date. Includes a Foreword by Shuusuke Inagaki, Mitsubishi's motorsport boss.

Synopsis

The Lancer name conjures up many different images. For some, it evokes memories of the first generation cars, introduced in 1973, which fought with the best on the Safari Rally and came out the victors. Others will remember the second generation models – especially the turbocharged versions, the original Mitsubishi wolf in sheep’s clothing – and who could not be aware of the Evolution (Evo) series, launched in 1992? Forged in the fierce heat of WRC competition and honed by years of continuous development, the Lancer Evolution is not only one of the greatest rally cars of all time, it is also a desirable high-performance road car, too. Written in Japan with the full cooperation of Mitsubishi and key staff members, this is the definitive international story of all the world’s Lancers, whether they carried Mitsubishi, Dodge, Colt, Plymouth, Valiant, Eagle, Proton or Hyundai badges, with special emphasis on the Evolution models.
