The base Starion was active in Group A and Group B regulation racing and rallying. As the flagship of the time, its competitiveness increased by expanding the tread in the blister fender and the displacement of this base. The tread expansion due to the blister fender used a progressive method that was also adopted in the recent Lancer Evolution V, and it can be said to be a car that shows high competitiveness for its model year.
The Lancer Evolution is the result of an evolution spanning 10 generations since the first model. The base model and engine have been redesigned for the X and this vehicle has changed most radically in the evolution so far. Its slightly larger body functions to increase its stability, and coupled with the newly developed S-AWC system and the twin clutch SST etc., it creates a vehicle that anyone can drive safely at high speeds. It's hard to reach its maximum speed due to the 4WD, but it's a car that can run intensely on any stage.
The last model of the 3rd generation Lancer Evolution. It feels more responsive in linear acceleration than ever before with the MIVEC mechanism added to the engine. Also, the front bumper, with a shape developed from feedback from endurance races, functions to help drivability so that it won't fail at any speed. The GDB-F is its contemporary rival.
Using an aluminum roof panel and a carbon rear-wing, this is a full-time 4WD machine where care has been paid to the center of gravity along with reducing the weight of the entire body. Equipped with electrical controls such as ACD and AYC, it has a 4WD that turns well. It's difficult to reach its maximum speed as it's a rally-based machine. The GDB-C is its contemporary rival.
The Group A homologation model that once won the WRC Drivers' Champion. With its good lineage as a base vehicle for motorsports, it's become a model that can satisfy anyone from beginners to pros. It has slightly less torque compared to the CT9A, but the driver can feel the acceleration and cornering that make use of the lighter body. It's difficult to reach its maximum speed as it's a rally-based machine.
The first model in the Lancer Evolution series where the tread was expanded to the Japanese-spec, normal- passenger- car size. Its basic car features are very similar to the same-generation Lancer Evolution VI, but its suspension is made to respond to slightly rougher surfaces. Of course, it's difficult to reach its maximum speed as it's a rally-based machine.
This is also a Group A homologation model that once had big success in the WRC. Its narrow body, which was classified as a small passenger car in Japan, belongs to the lightest weight class and allows the driver to really savor the intense acceleration. Due to its good acceleration, it's a car recommended for beginners, who tend to make mistakes. Of course, it's also difficult to reach the EVO3's maximum speed as it's a rally-based machine.
Mitsubishi's flagship model that was loaded with the latest technology of the time. The torque emanating from the 3 liter V6 twin turbo engine is intense. The driver must pay attention when braking due to its weight, but its stability in the ultra high-speed range is superb. It's a car suited for the maximum speed challenge even while it's 4WD.
