1997 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IV GSR Turbocharged 2.0 from UK and Ireland
Crazy car. Good value for money if you find a good one
Windscreen washer sprays stopped working.
It eats tyres when driven hard.
Under heavy braking, the pads fade and braking is poor.
Air-conditioning packed up.
OK, I used to own a modified Nissan Sunny/Pulsar GTi-R, that was about 280bhp, 60 appeared in under 5 seconds.
It was seriously quick. But the Evo feels so much more stable. The handling is precise and extremely responsive.
In standard form the car was a joy, and with just a new exhaust system and air filter, the car feels so much more responsive.
The Evolution V is currently £3,000 more to buy than the Evolution IV. That's why I opted for the Evolution IV.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
