    It's official, the EVO VIII (That's right: EIGHT) is coming...

    Mitsubishi recently announced that they will be unveiling the Lancer Evolution VIII at the FIA WRC of Finland August 8, 2002. The VIII will be exported to the US and we will never see the EVO VII.

    Mitsu updates the Evo nearly every year. If an Evo is very successful, it may last two years. Hey, it seems to be working. Ask Colin McRae!!!

    ya, those damn 5mph bumpers are just so that we have less insurance claims, and pay less for insurance. Here in Canada with our no-fault system we have 7mph bumper regulations. so even some cars (like the new thunderbird) have to be modified before comming here.
