The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III was launched in 1995. The primary idea behind the Lancer Evolution series was to create a car which could fully exploit the basic capabilities of a car (driving, tuning and, breaking), while retaining the reliability and endurance required for rally racing.
This third generation sees an enhanced engine performance and new exterior aerodynamics components which provide it with a powerful design. The front surround is peppered with air intakes, which not only looks good but also increases the discs and brakes’ cooling ability.
The 4G93 turbo engine has raised power by boosting its compression ratio from 8.5 to 9.0, optimizing the shape of the turbo’s compressor wheel, and expanding the exterior of the exhaust pipe to reduce back pressure.
These improvements succeed in squeezing out 266hp and 227.8 lb-ft of torque. The Evolution III was offered in a choice of the lightweight RS sports model and the deluxe GSR.
