Like its rival Subaru, Mitsubishi made a very big name for itself in international rallying during the 1990s. In order to do this, it had to build significant numbers of high-performance road cars – all variants of the Lancer saloon – which became the basis for the competition machines. The correct name for all these vehicles is Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, though they are generally referred to as Evos. They can be divided broadly into four series, but there were so many updates (some of them very close together) that officially they covered ten generations. Here is their story.
