2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII 4dr Sport Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
I have driven much more expensive sports cars, with more horsepower, better looking (maybe), more luxurious, etc., but nothing will deliver the same performance package that the Evo does. This is a machine built with one specific purpose in mind: highest level of performance by combining power with precise delivery and control. No car on the road costing less than 100k will give so much road feel, precise turning and confidence like the Lancer Evolution. This car tells you exactly what's going on from the contact patch level to the steering wheel. You can increase the power, handling, grip, etc., for less money than other cars. This is a car for the purist not poseurs!
Chassis and drivetrain.
Have a track delivery program like BMW! If people just knew what this thing can actually do in a professional road circuit.
