Elder Smith Road – Lancer Evolution 5

Okay so I’m waiting for the cries of the Euro car fans, but I’m slowly coming to the realisation that I have a real soft spot for Evo 5/6’s.

The stance of this example that I saw the other night at Mawson Lakes is pretty much spot on, and it did look pretty mean with it’s extra carbon canards on the front bumper. But what outshone all of that was how it sounded – I’m not sure what’s under the bonnet but it had a lumpy idle to rival most rally cars, and sounded a delightfully ricer fluttering ’tishhhh’ wastegate sound with every gearshift.

      Keen spotting there! Yea I wasn't quite sure if it was a 5 or 6, I only got a real quick look at the front so I took I guess when writing this post. Has been corrected now. Cheers
