The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution was introduced in 1992. The car was developed to compete in the World Rally Championship. The first Lancer Evo was called the Evo 1. It had 4-wheel drive and produced 244 hp with a 4-cylinder turbocharged engine. The Evo VI before you is a special edition to commemorate Tommi Makinen winning the World Rally Championship for four consecutive years (1996-1999). This special edition features a different front bumper with 17” Enkei wheels and a titanium turbine that spools up the turbo quicker. The Lancer Evolution was produced until 2016, by then in its 10th generation. The very last Lancer Evo X was sold on eBay in September 2016 for $76,400, nearly twice the retail price of a "Final Edition" Evo, with proceeds going to charity.
