Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR FQ-360 by HKS

I bought the car on 6 December 2010, and sold it on 22 May 2023. The Mitsubishi Evo IX MR FQ-360 is the limited edition top of the range of the ninth generation Evo, and the successor to the VIII FQ-400. With a 0–60 mph time (3.9 s) quicker than a Porsche GT3 RS or a Ferrari F430, these Evos give supercar drivers nightmares. The Mitsubishi Evo IX MR FQ-360 is the successor to the Evo VIII FQ-400 driven by Jeremy Clarkson here, the IX MR FQ-360 producing less power, but more torque, and is easier to drive and allegedly quicker from A to B. Testing my ChilliBongo in-car camera here. Not my videos, but here is a passenger's view, and the speedo.
