    Evo X I've just driven

    There's a guy at work who's wife works for Mitsubishi and let's him drive any car he wants that they have on there forecourt, well last night I asked him if he could bring in the new Evo X for me to look at to which he said he would try.

    Tonight he rolls up in this and handed me the keys!!!! Told him I just wanted to look at it but he insisted I had a drive for 10 mins and see what I thought, now I wasn't going to refuse so have just taking it for a spin around reading and have to say I can't wipe the smile off my face!! Here's a pic next to my car




    Has anyone else driven one of these? I really do want one now lol

    Took a while to get used to the flappy paddle gearbox but otherwise it was awesome to drive! He did say it was ok to drive with my insurance so thought nothing of it, headed towards the majeski stadium up the dual carriage way and booted it, never expected it to pull as quick as it did lol

    Sorry that bit made me laugh. I could picture the scene ... officer pulls you, says you can't legally drive it & you reply, but i was told by my mate that i could


    Still, they look tidy. There's a nutjob who drives around here in a white Evo10 who really shouldn't be allowed to drive it.

    There's an even nuttier job around this way who drives a 350z who shouldn't be driving cars full stop.

    Fair play mate..... get him to bring one home every night for you.....

    anyways guys, he did not get stopped by the police.... Stop living in a land of what if's... fully comp will cover it.... or by the trade insurance... the police would not bat an eye lid..
