Lean and Mean; 470HP Street Driven EVO

We’ve featured a plethora of Mitsubishi Evolutions through the years on THE-LOWDOWN.com and thought we’d seen it all until we stumbled across Manuel’s Evolution IX.

Striving to be unique, Manuel has created a Frankenstein Evolution combining bodykit manufactures Voltex, Varis and Do-Luck whilst creating a custom set of rear fender flairs. Not happy with the USDM rear bumper, a JDM bumper was sourced and installed as a replacement with a Varis Diffuser added for the finishing touch.

The combination of parts surprisingly works well together with minimal customisation on the rear fenders to complete the look. The engine has been rebuilt and equipped with a Tomei 7960 turbo pushing enough boost for 470HP.

Manuel is already talking about changing the look of his Evolution and going down the widebody path. We’re excited to see what Manual comes up with next.
