Our ‘History of‘ series of info graphics chart the development of some of the most popular and iconic cars in the world. The legendary Mitsubishi Evo is the 8th to feature in the series. To date we’ve covered the Nissan Skyline, BMW 3 Series, Porsche 911Subaru ImprezaHonda CivicFord Escort and the Volkswagen Golf.

The Evo and Impreza go hand in hand – you can’t really talk about one without talking about the other. Both are rally legends, both are a modifiers wet dream and both were ‘unicorn’ cars for a generation. In our post about the history of the Impreza I spoke about how you were either an Impreza guy or an Evo guy – You kinda had to pick a side! I was firmly in the Subaru camp because my Dad had one, but being brutally honest and despite the charismatic flat-four burble, the gold wheels and the exploits of Messrs McCrea and Burns I always secretly  thought the Evo had a bit of an edge over the Impreza.  The styling was more outlandish, the rear wing bigger, the magazine reviews always ever-so slightly better.

The Mitsubishi Evo has been a cult icon for car fans since 1992 but now the end is in sight.

With the arrival of Group A in the World Rally Championship Mitsubishi was keen to prove its technical know how in the world of Motorsport, but the regulations required a minimum of 2,500 production examples to be built. And so the legendary Mitsubishi Evo that would develop alongside a whole generation of petrolheads was born. Ten generations later the end is in sight for this iconic road and rally car. With that said, here’s our tribute to the legendary Mitsibishi Lancer Evolution
