Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X

There are times when you want to film the next “Fast and the Furious” by yourself and that is when you turn to just one car on this blue Planet

Dont think much, its the EVOlution X

Mitsubishi in the early 90’s thought of WRC as the way to arrive on the world stage, and did they not get it right

The Lancer Evo was born, and then started the cult phenomenon called the Evo Series

Car: The current one is the 10th Gen Evo which follows on the footsteps of the 9th

Design: Take a look at it, and it says Lancer. The more sharp features are the latest addition but it still does justice to the family. Sharp headlamps and new tail lamp cluster (which ironically is the most non Lancer looking part) Rim options are good as well. The large front grill segment adds to the aggression

Engine:- In line with the tradition of previous models,  2 litre Turbocharged inLine 4, producing a whopping 320 horses. Its hooked to a 6-speed twin clutch SST Transmission which is awesome but “I want a manual” fans get a 5-speed manual

The important part is the ever legendary stiff and robust all wheel drive system. And round it up with a fact : The Evo is still faster than a Porsche 911, also you get  racing seats to fulfill that dream

Bottom Line: A car not for everyone but for those enthusiasts who care least about Porsche and Lambo etc, but still race hard. Particularly a delight for the mods, and tuners

And that is the recipe for your Fast and Furious part 5. Bon Voyage

P.S. – Go for a RED

Mitsubishi Pajero (NEW)

Yes folks!!!

This beauty is set to burn the roads, and its not an Outlander or a Montero version, its the very PAJERO!!!!

Also, this is no concept which will just make it to the Mitsubishi showrooms across Japan..

It is set to arrive evrywhere

Looks:- This beauty instantly reminds you of those great Paris-Dakar Mitsubishi cars which once ruled the show & u might also recall similar looks form Colin Mcrae , Dirt or any other rally game u’ve played while growing up.

Heart:- Power will be delivered by two new set of engines as for the Pajero 2.5 litre (140bhp) and a 3.2 litre (165bhp). Gone are the days of the older 1.8 and 3.2

Interiors:- Straight from the Outlander (or that is the way it looks), but is still attractive

Appeal:- After a long pause in the world of SUV’s , or shud i say Softroaders (why did man create this genre), Come back to the orthodox way of going offroad, manual levers and all the old school fun in a new package

The real concern for Mitsubishi to take this step seems more to cut out the Toyota Fortuner than a in house development, but either way, we have options apart from the Outlander, which is gr8 news.

Prices yet to be announced…
