Say Hello To The World’s Fastest Mitsubishi Evo

The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution VIII and IX are arguably the most potent Evo generations ever produced and utilize technology, including torque vectoring, which many current performance cars have only started to use in recent years.

Consequently, the Evo 8 and Evo 9 remain formidable performance sedans and have always been a favorite among aftermarket tuners around the world. While some look to improve not only the straight-line performance of the Evo but also its cornering ability, the tuner behind this build has focused on one thing; creating the world’s fastest Evo at the drag strip.

Installed with a huge turbocharger protruding out of the hood and a fully-built engine, this Evo delivers approximately 1,700 hp at the crank and recently stormed down the quarter mile in a frankly ridiculous 7.9 seconds at 185 mph (298.26 km/h).

Despite having an all-wheel drive system, the Evo squirms its way down the down strip and looks like a hell of a ride. The engine even revs to a staggering 13,000 rpm, creating what is surely one of the craziest Japanese tuner cars you’ll come across.
