A road legal world rally car
To date, nothing has gone wrong. The car is still fairly new, but it still looks immaculate.
I don't expect the tyres to last much longer though.
My previous car was a Civic Type R, now that was fast and on a dry day it handled well with predictable understeer.
The Evo on the other hand is totally awesome, the acceleration is fanatical and quite addictive.
I've driven 400bhp Skylines and they are nothing in comparison. The 550bhp would take some beating off the line though.
Where the Evo really shows its colours is on the twisties. This car handles like nothing I've ever driven before. I've driven Escort Cossworths, 400 and 550bhp skylines and Imprezza STi's all of which are not a patch in the road holding department.

The level of trim in this road legal rally car is also great. Leather and suede Recaro's, Momo steering wheel and gear knob. Lovely.
Finaly, the brakes. Wow. Brembo's all round make stopping as easy as speeding, not that I would speed officer.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
