Sup guys. I posted this on ClubLexus and EvolutionM.net, and kooldino asked me to share it with you guys here.
On June 1 around 2:30pm, I was on the 605 freeway heading North, near Cerritos Auto Square. I spotted this weird looking EVO-VIII, the weird interior caught my eyes. RHD, some mechanical differences from EVO-VIII.
Before I merged onto the 91 freeway, I snapped a few pics with my trusted DC (I always keep it handy in my car now). Here are the pics:
Exterior of an EVO-VIII:
dual exhausts (small tips resemble the EVO-X concept dual exhausts)
new-Lancer looking interior?
RHD. Fake driver on the passenger side (or is that the driver side?)
Weird bulge on the hood.
It seemed like an EVO-X but with EVO-VIII sheet metals. We had a bunch of discussion over at ClubLexus and EvolutionM.net, and basically we've concluded that this is an EVO-X drivetrain mule. It is the same car that was tested on the Nurburgring last year.
