Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution information ( EVO 5 )

Lancer Evolution Information - EVO 5/EVO V

Mitsubishi really went to town on the EVO 5 exploiting many more of the Group A rally regulations. Body work and chassis dimensions were increased to the maximum allowed by the Group A regulations. The wider track meant the EVO 5 had to have flared wheel arches to cover the wider 7.5 inch OZ alloy wheels. The bonnet was now home to the largest bonnet vent allowed by the regulations and the rear wing now had two elements.

On the suspension side camber adjusters were now incorporated as standard and new inverted type suspension struts were now used. The EVO 5 also got a new power steering pump which saved a few kgs over the old design. The engine was again revised with new pistons, a new turbo, new intercooler as well as the cooling system allowing the extra torque of this car to be delivered reliably both on the special stage and on the road. Bigger Brembo brakes were used which included 320mm diameter discs and 4 pot calipers with 300m solid discs being found at the back clamped by 2 pot Brembo calipers. The RS came without ABS and came with steel wheels and the same brakes found on previous EVO's leaving it open to buyers to choose their own brake set up.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Information ( Evo 3 )

Lancer Evolution Information - EVO 3/EVO III

The EVO 3 was released in January 1995 again with 5,000 examples being available with these being bought up faster than the EVO 2. The exhaust systems was upgraded again for the EVO 3 as a new TD05-16G6-7 turbo was used, this along with a slight increase in engine compression led to a 10bhp power rise. Cosmetically the front of the car was opened up dramatically leading to a much more aggressive look. These changes gave much better cooling not only for the intercooler and engine but also for the brakes. To compliment the new look at the front new side skirts were adopted along with a new rear bumper and new, higher rear wing.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Information ( EVO 2)

Lancer Evolution Information - EVO 2/EVO II

Although the EVO 1 proved extremely popular there were many areas that were improved upon for the EVO 2. The EVO 2 went on sale in December of 1993 and had a production run of 5000 examples, these took just 3 months to sell out.

The improvements of the EVO 1 started with the chassis, the track and wheelbase were increased to give better stability and cornering performance for the road car and the rally car, these track changes allowed the EVO 2 to wear 205/60-R15 tyres without rubbing. The torsional rigidity of the EVO 2 was increased by 30 percent over the EVO 1. Engine power was increased by another 10bhp with the use of a redesigned performance exhaust system and an increases in boost pressure. The gearbox and clutch were uprated and the rear LSD changed meaning that the RS and GSR versions both used the same item. On the outside there was a lower front bumper and an extra element was added to the rear wing. The interior saw even more supportive Recaro seats. The RS now came with same Momo steering wheel as the GSR.

Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Information ( EVO I)

In October of 1992 the EVO 1 went on sale with 2,500 examples being available to meet Group A Rally homologation rules. The first 2,500 cars sold out in 3 days which led to Mitsubishi making another 2.500 cars. The differences between the normal road going Lancer and the Lancer Evolution were huge. The 4G63 powerplant was thoroughly updated with improvements being made to the breathing, turbo, fuel injection as well as the engine internals. A larger front mounted intercooler was installed which included its own water spray system.

Although these changes only gave the car an extra 10bhp the engine was well capable of handling more power. As would be expected with a rally car the body shell was extensively stiffened to cope with the rigors of the Safari and Acropolis Rally's. The EVO 1 came with a viscous centre differential and a limited slip diff at the rear.

The GSR version was the more focused version and this came with air conditioning, Recaro seats, Momo steering wheel. tinted glass, abs, electric windows and mirrors plus a 6 speaker car audio system. The body work also had to comply with the rally regulations which meant all the scoops and vents which would be used to full effect on the rally car were also present on the road going version of the Lancer Evolution.

The RS EVO was much more focused on the rally stage meaning that it came without ABS, air conditioning, the Recaro seats and the alloy wheels found on the GSR. Instead the RS came with steel wheels and the result of the systems being left off the RS led to a 70kg reduction in weight.

Lancer Evolution 1 Specs:
Engine: 1997cc
Power: 250PS @ 6000rpm
Torque: 228lbs/ft @ 3000rpm
Weight: 1240kg (RS 1170kg)
Top Speed: 143mph
0-60 mph: 5.1 seconds

BMW 5 Series Shots

Just showing off the BMW 5 Series which known as the Red beauty. Just look at how beautiful it is when you see it from far coming nearer and nearer to you just in a split second. Enjoy viewing. =)

This type of alarm should be installed by everyone!

Browsing through the web and saw this and wondering what is it although it has posted up quite a long time ago but I guess it will make us LOL when we see this. Caution: watch with speaker volume low. You will know what I mean later. =). So check out the video.

Subaru Impreza STI

Magnificent ride, Saw this ride when I'm having my breakfast @ Ara Damansara area and it just attract me so deeply. Subaru Impreza is always the car I always want to have one but this is totally different from the Subaru Impreza which is a sedan version I always admire. This turns out to be Coupe version, but the looks is not bad and it's still a Subaru equipped with Boxer Engine where its their trademark.
