Why anyone would construct a Mitsubishi Lancer (learn: Mirage) is past us. It’s in all probability as a result of within the States, the Mirage was a penalty field, the automotive you obtain since you felt that you just deserved to endure. Underpowered, front-wheel-drive, and as visually stimulating as a cup of plain yogurt, the Mirage didn’t have something going for it. Internationally, nevertheless, the Lancer, because it’s identified, did have a scorching mannequin: the Evolution. With turbocharged four-banger energy and all-wheel-drive, the Evolution collection was the start of the rally rocket and the automotive that we’d see begin to take type within the 1990s and develop into it’s personal by the flip of the century.
Neither certainly one of these automobiles are precise Evolutions. As an alternative, they’re each mission automobiles that belong to Mighty Automotive Mods which have been labored on for a bit now. The blue automotive, dubbed as “2Sexy”, began life because the sort of body-kitted nightmare that you just noticed on the second Quick and Livid flick. It was stripped, reverted to largely inventory, and constructed to be extra of a observe assault sort of automotive, however after it’s first outing the engine croaked, so a later-model Lancer engine and different upgrades had been put in. The orange one, “2WISTED”, was cowl automotive inbuilt the identical vein as 2Sexy’s unique design…radical paint, obnoxious modifications, totally carried out inside, a monster sound system and the general feeling that we’d wanna retch. Is there a redeeming issue for both automotive? Sure…each of them are above the 300 wheel horsepower mark and each will transfer out. However Marty and Moog have a wager going between them. If we heard proper, the loser of a fan-built competitors goes to lose their automotive…completely. These guys have carried out it earlier than, with certainly one of Marty’s automobiles getting flattened right into a pancake. That’s some high-stakes stuff if we’ve ever heard of it.
One Lancer is constructed about the one manner we’d ever take one on, the opposite is the stuff of our nightmares. However which one is the most effective? And which one has a date with two nice huge slabs of metal that solely is aware of one job?
