The Mitsubishi Lancer saw the light of day in the lower middle class in 1973. Almost precisely 5.000 units were produced in 1992 for the car or motorsport designed Mitsubishi Lancer Evo(lution) I, also the first stage of development with 250 HP. Due to an extremely large number of rally successes in the meantime nine (!) further development stages have joined them. Thus, the Evo X, which will be discussed here, goes in the race, with 295 series-HP from displacement of two litres.

Whereas, the middle part spanning the trunk lid and provided roof with indicated emergency hatch in matt red are kept in Black Brushed Steel. In the middle of the vertical part of the tailgate a raised Hello-Kitty-AK47 can be recognized on closer inspection. Notes above and behind the headlamps, the labelling of the doors must be observed, as well as the advice on the fuel cap and on the back „corners“ of the vehicle. Do not forget the warning next to exhaust. Absolutely eye-catcher is undoubtedly approximately 300 adhered „screw heads“.
