Evo, nice looks? They look capable and aggressive for sure, but they're not nice looking
4 wheel drive means transmission losses, which means less speed over power output, (although more traction off the line).
I like the idea of cars like this Rover, street sleepers, there was one going 'round Birkenhead for a while which was very quick, (looked almost stock too).
There's been quite a few quick rovers over the years, sure they have problems but they don't have the sort of budget that Mitsubishi have (nor all the technology that the Evo has), just goes to show what a bit of engine modding can do to a more or less normal everyday car.
