Commerical time: Lancer fights on in China

November 16, 2010 in Commerical time

I always liked the looks of the seventh generation Lancer, especially when it became available in that awesome EVO package. I really have fond memories of seeing a EVO V up close during a smoke break in 2001 when one of the (shady) business partners of one of my former employers parked it right next to me. I can still remember that awesome sound, those awesome looks and that awesome smell of burnt oil! :)

Anyways, I’m drifting off a bit too much… The Chinese car manufacturer Soueast is building the seventh generation of the Lancer in license. In other words, you can still buy them!


There is also a sports edition with a restyled nose. Let’s hope the Chinese are sane enough to offer the EVO versions as well! :)

Itasha airbagged Lancer Evo V

I know: airbagged cars and Itasha don’t mix, but these airbags are a different kind of airbags: they replace the original item of this Lancer Evo V:
Airbags in an itasha Lancer Evo V
Airbags in an itasha Lancer Evo V

Yes, that’s of course the perfect airbags for an anime loving itasha owner! ;)

Just for the record, this is how the whole Evo V looks like:
itasha Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI
itasha Mitsubishi Lancer Evo V

Very nicely done, but not exactly my cup of tea! ;)
