2005 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution RS 4dr Sport Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)

Review

This car is unbelievable (and underrated). To be fair I test drove a few cars (The STi, TL, Boxster, Cayman and my friend's M3). Out of all the cars, this car just blew me away. This is an enthusiast's dream. True it has a bare bones interior but who needs a stereo when you have 285 horses buzzing? Some have said that the 5-speed isn't as smooth as Honda's but it feels much firmer and won't feel like it'll snap off during power shifts. This car won't get girl's attention until you smoke their boyfriend's Porsche. If you want attention, buy an overpriced convertible, if you want performance buy an Evo. BMW's lying..THIS is the ultimate driving machine!

Favorite Features

The turbo, how it costs under $30,000 out the door (lucky me!), the firm tranny, how '06 options are standard on the '05 model, and its stealth. this car can run with cars that cost twice as much and only a few know what's under the hood q=-).

Suggested Improvements

Give it bigger brakes and a 4 point racing harnesses. Helmets and fire suits should be optional for the '08 model lol.
