An independent artist presented his vision of what a worthy successor to the high-performance Mitsubishi Lancer Evo sedan could be. At the moment, Mitsubishi has no plans to resurrect the Mitsubishi Lancer Evo.
There are rumors about the return of the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution, although the company has adamantly stated that it is not interested in reviving the powerful sedan. The automaker has repeatedly stated that the Evo is unlikely to return, although many fans of the model still hope so. Independent artist Raine Priscus has published his vision of what the successor to the Japanese legend could be.
After the disappearance of the Lancer Evo in 2016, Mitsubishi’s styling has changed significantly as the company focuses more on crossovers and SUVs.
Adapting this styling to a sedan has its challenges, although Priscus has done an admirable job integrating modern Mitsu’s bold front end design into the new Evo. Super-slim headlights, a small false radiator grille, a front spoiler and a dual-vent hood give the sedan a modern aesthetic.
The body of the car has thick body folds that add a sporty accent to the sedan. This is especially true of the line that extends from the front door and above the door handles to the rear fender. Rounding off the look is the massive rear wing, which has been a staple of the Evo’s design for many years.
One of the latest rumors regarding the return of the Evo dates back to 2019. It says the car will return with a 341bhp engine borrowed from the “charged” Renault Megane RS. Much has happened to Mitsubishi since then, and the return of the high-performance Lancer Evolution sedan seems highly unlikely.
