Mitsubishi Evo X Tribute Video

Mitsubishi Evo X Tribute Video

The Mitsubishi Evo is dead… or is it? Rumored to have been axed by product planners, Evo fanboys and car enthusiasts everywhere were ready to pour out a gallon of 100 octane on the track in remembrance, but then company CEO Osamu Masuko spoke up. The Evo isn’t dead, he said, but is, much like Mitsubishi itself, at a crossroads. It won’t disappear he insisted, but instead will “evolve”; possibly signifying a less noble death for the hard-core driving enthusiast car.

When we first heard the news of the Evo’s demise, it just so happened that we had a new 2011 MR version of the car in the AutoGuide garage. Fearing the worst for our beloved Evo we set about making a video tribute to a car just as a serious winter storm closed in. As it turned out, that made for a pretty incredible setting for an incredible AWD machine.

    emotion invoking. On one side i wished there had been exhaust note and engine revs included, but i can appreciate why they were not. The Evo is a legacy that mitsubishi would be unwise to kill off. In a few years, they can reboot the eclipse with a 2.0L, and make it sub 3000 lbs…get back to what made them sell like hot cakes.
