That's a great video. One of the best I've seen recently. Gotta love how 0-60 in 3.5 sec in a Mitsu sounds.

47K GBP @ $1.87 = $87,890

Still a bargain considering that it BEAT the ferrari 575 and gallardo and noble m12 around the track.

Also, that is not the same model we get. Same looking, but the engine is considerably more powerful there. Ours has 276 hp (which is measured at the flywheel) theirs has 450 bhp (which is measured at the wheels). I think the less powerful one is better considering the heroic amount of shifting you'd have to do to squeeze all that power out.

You can buy the one they were testing here. Its the MR version of the Evo. Its called the FQ400 overseas. They seem to like the horsepower in the title over there (IE Ford:ST170, ST220, Mitsubishi FQ271 and FQ400). I thought the MR went out for sale last month in the states?

EDIT: DID ANYONE ELSE CATCH HIM SAYING THAT THE CAR ONLY GETS 4MPG?!?!

Nope. here, MR just gets the electronically control center differential and the fancy body bits. Look it up on the mitsu website it comes with 276 hp.

yeah i heard the statement about the gas mileage, and i'm hoping he read the monitor wrong, because if that's the case you'd probably have to carry 3 or so gas tanks in your trunk to get around town.
