Mitsubishi Lancer Evo Wagon 2006
There are some cars that, when I look at them, I feel like I’m living right now in the high tech, space age future that I used to imagine as a boy. In that future which was to me a kind of mix of Star Trek, Star Wars, and Blade Runner, I would be like Harrison Ford: cool, good looking, and fast. All the girls would be like Rachel: sexy, smart, and fast. And all the cars would be like the Lamborghini Countach: modern looking, muscular, and fast. They would have seats like imaginary rocket fighter plane pilot’s seats. They would look serious, and they would go like jets. Basically, they would be like this wicked black 2006 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution Wagon which we sourced recently at the used car auctions here in Japan.
The ninth generation of Mitsubishi’s rocket car has, is, what I imagined the cars of the exciting sci-fi future would have, and be: Sharp looks, sharp handling, and acceleration so sharp that it may bite you if you are not careful. (And might send you to jail, too.) Along with the Subaru Impreza WRX STi Sports Wagons, the Evo Wagon is the only station wagon so quick that caution is advised. Seriously, these are sub five second 0-60mp/h cars and you must take care when you touch that accel pedal. As I know from experience, it’s like this: You’re sitting there in your rocket wagon and you’re feeling a bit wicked. O.K., the light changes to green. First gear, accel down, clutch up, you feel the push, into second gear now…..and, Buddy, you’re doing 120km/h literally before you know it. And don’t gawk over long at that speedo because the world is rushing by outside and you are now that futuristic missile that I thought all the cool cars of the future would be when I grew up.
Yep, we are grown up now and the fast cars like the AWD Lancer Evo Wagon are here. And as a Japan-based used car exporter, we can now source you some very fine examples of this and other Japanese supercars for reasonable money and in good condition. And with Japanese super car iron like the Lancer Evo, Subaru Impreza WRX STi, and Nissan Skyline GT-R, you don’t need to worry about the Lamborghini reliability. But you certainly do have to watch that accelerator or a car like this Lancer imported direct from Japan is going to import you straight to the Big House.
Yes, the future came. And the cars? Well, some of them, at least, like this Evo Wagon, did turn out modern looking, muscular, and fast; like my dreams. The girls? Mostly they did not turn out like Rachel, which is a good thing as she always was a bit nasty, anyway. And me? I didn’t turn out like Harrison Ford; not cool, not good looking, but by having a car in the Lancer Evo / Impreza WRX class, at least I turned out to be fast. And if I’m careful with that accelerator pedal I can stay out of jail, too; and so can you, when you get your modern Japanese supercar direct from Japan.
