    Here comes the EVO VII

    LOS ANGELES, Jan. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America,
    Inc. announced today that the Lancer Evolution, a rally-tuned model previously
    unavailable in North America, will be coming to U.S. showrooms next year. The
    announcement is sure to please enthusiasts who have hungered for the
    high-performance version of the popular new Lancer sedan.
    Last year, the Lancer badge, already renowned in global markets, burst
    onto Mitsubishi's North American product line-up to great reviews and strong
    sales. This compact sedan -- replete with big-car features -- lets customers
    know that a low sticker price doesn't require a compromise in comfort, fun or
    durability. Evolution is a standout in the U.S. market's Lancer family.
    Lancer Evolution: It's Coming!
    The magnificent Lancer Evolution will appear in U.S. showrooms in the
    spring of 2003. "The Lancer EVO is our chance to stir the blood of every
    enthusiast and build our reputation as a major performance player in this
    country," said Pierre Gagnon, president and chief operating officer of MMSA.
    "It will cast warm light on every product we sell. When we say we build
    spirited cars for spirited people, everyone will be listening."
    Building on the Lancer sedan's robustly designed unibody, Mitsubishi's
    engineers pulled out all the stops, taking "The Bionic Man" approach to
    reinvention of a stronger, faster and smarter performance car. This
    unrivalled compact, super-sedan speaks volumes to Mitsubishi's technological
    prowess, and World Rally Championship winning heritage. Expect the Lancer
    Evolution sedan we'll see in U.S. showrooms to rumble with a 2.0 liter
    turbocharged, inline-four developing more than 250 rabid horses,
    gravity-defying four-wheel-drive handling, eye-ball displacing Brembo brakes
    and a sub-30K sticker price.
    Lancer Motorsports
    Mitsubishi Motor Sales of America, Inc. will showcase its resilience,
    technical expertise and competitive spirit with an expanded motorsports
    commitment for the 2002 SCCA Pro Rally campaign that will feature the Lancer
    and its wild Evolution derivative. With Rhys Millen behind the wheel,
    Mitsubishi Lancers will do battle for the championship of the SCCA's premier
    rally series in both the Open class with an EVO VII, and the nearer-to-stock
    Group N class with a modified Lancer sedan.

    Tuned Lancers
    In the spirit of this LA Lancer celebration, several modified examples of
    Lancer sedans are on display, and give testament to the compact sedans
    resounding acceptance by the growing tuner culture. Modern Image, Rhys Millen
    Racing, and Shawn William are responsible for these Lancer-based creations
    that show just what the vehicle can become with just the right mechanical and
    styling brushstrokes. Turbochargers, lowered suspensions, wild graphics,
    racing bucket seats, roll bars, and lots of attitude are the touches applied
    to this tuner canvas known as Lancer.

    Montero Evolution Concept
    A Lancer Evolution cousin, the Montero Evolution Concept, will make its
    North American debut at the 2002 Los Angeles Auto Show. This concept vehicle
    summarizes the visual emphasis on passion and driving enthusiasm that will go
    into every one of Mitsubishi's vehicles as part of the chosen direction of new
    chief designer Olivier Boulay. The production Montero's elegance is replaced
    by an inspired and urgent sense of race-ready passion in Paris-Dakar bred
    Montero Evolution Concept. The athleticism of the design is evident through
    the chiseled and expressive lines of the concept. Mitsubishi technology
    appears beneath the alluring skin of this concept with a 3.5 liter V6 MIVEC
    (Mitsubishi Innovative Valve Lift & timing Electronic Control) engine powering
    a Super Select 4WD system with AYC (Active Yaw Control) and an ACD (Active
    Center Differential).

    RPM 7000 Concept
    Also appearing for the first time in Southern California is the RPM 7000
    Concept. The RPM 7000 is a rolling exclamation point of a design that
    embodies, or rather screams of the sporty image and competitive rally spirit
    that is Mitsubishi. This vehicle takes the ideology of the wild Lancer Evo
    series, and blends it in an over-the-top styling exercise that merges S.U.V.
    with tarmac dancing supercar. More than just a concept bottled up by
    conventional "hybrid" or "crossover" labels, the RPM 7000 uses a
    315 horsepower all-wheel drive system to bring new levels of jaw-dropping
    performance to a vehicle that is also at home towing jet-skis.

    Jeez, I can't even spell persona.
    Good judgement comes from experience,
    and experience comes from bad judgement.
