The April 2003 issue of Super Street mentions that the weight of a stock EVO VIII is a whopping 4,222 pounds!

As we all know, a stock WRX is only 3,085 pounds.

When I saw this machine today, and felt the strut tower brace that seemed to be made of iron, I had a feeling that it would be heavier. But not this much!

What good is an 44 extra horsepower when it's pulling 1137 pounds? :confused:

I guess these guys focus a bit too much on their corny jokes, and not enough on their typing accuracy or editing abilities.

On the Mitsu Motors site, it lists the MAX weight as like 4400 lbs. So that's what the suspension can handle before bottoming-out, I'd guess. No way it weighs more than 3400 curb weight.

Anyhow, the Evo doesn't look TOO much like a revamped WRX, now does it? :rolleyes: It does have style, though. And comes stock with Brembo 4-piston brakes up front, Enkei/Yokohama 17" wheel package, and 19psi turbo. Does that make it worth $5k more than a stock WRX??? Notsosher.
