    About the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V The name "Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution" made its first appearance at the 1973 World Rally Championships. After that, the Lancer participated on and off in rally activity until its return to the WRC in 1993.

    The reborn Lancer Evolution adopted a 4WD system, and was equipped with a 2L DOHC turbo engine, called the 4G63. Achieving a 2nd place finish in both the Indonesia Rally and the RAC Rally, the Lancer showed the world a glimpse of its speed. From the Evolution II in 1994, to the Evolution III in 1995, the Lancer was under continual development. In 1996, the Evolution III, driven by Tommi Makinen, won five races earning him a Driver's Title. Driving the Evolution IV in the following year, Tommi Makinen became a repeat champion. In 1998, the Evolution V made its debut in the 5th Catalonian Rally. The Evolution's most impressive feature is its wide body. With a blister fender on the front, and a fiberglass over fender on the rear, the width of the body was expanded to 177mm.

    Furthermore, by changing the shape of the front bumper and hood ducts, as well as by adding moveable wings and spoilers, the Evolution V was given even more punch. An electrically controlled active differential was adopted in the rear, as well as in the center and front of the car, ensuring high traction. The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V, driven by Tommi Makinen, showed the power of a champion throughout the year.
