2 Fast 2 Furious Mitsubishi Evo Hits eBay

Movie car turns up on eBay

If you're a fan of the fast and furious movie franchise, you could easily love or hate the second film in the series. The movie was called 2 Fast 2 Furious and is known for bad acting, rather cheesy cars, and a cheesy storyline among other things. Even though the movie was pretty bad, some of the cars used in the film were interesting.

One of the cars that was actually used in the movie was the green Mitsubishi Evo that Paul Walker drove. While most of the cars used in the film were base model Mitsubishi Lancers fixed up to look like the big dog Evo, the only actual Evo used in the film is now up for sale on eBay.

According to the auction description, the car has only 800 miles on it and is street legal. It has the questionable paint scheme seen in the movie and honestly really just doesn't look that cool. The car has been in a private collection since 2011 and is apparently actually fast. The car is a real Evo VII and the only thing missing from the film is the onboard computer and it lacks the blowoff valve sound inside the car.

Not Astron! Asterion! Photos Appear of Reported Lamborghini Mega-Hybrid Set for Paris Debut

Sep 29 2014 2:09pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

In the early 1970s, Lamborghini was setting the world on its ear with the futuristic Countach and their Italianate take on the AMC Marlin, the mighty Espada. Mitsubishi, on the other hand, was working hard to integrate twin balance shafts into a modest overhead-cam four-banger. The result of these endeavors? Old man Ferruccio bailed on the company he founded in 1974. The company, though it became an ’80s-bedro ...

Goo-Net: Best Kei Ever Edition

Sep 26 2014 9:04pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

I have not made my love of the Mitsubishi Minica Dangan ZZ-4 a secret here. It's a monster. The combination of a 660cc 3-pot with 5 valves per cylinder that revs to 9500 rpm and the computer-controlled AWD system that later appeared in the Lancer Evolution stuffed into a car the size and weight of a lunchbox produces the only thing that could out-rad the kei-sports trifecta of AZ-1, Beat an ...

Ever wonder how to really pronounce Japanese automaker names?

Just look at the endless debates over whether or not to say the final 'e' in Porsche (which you should in terms of correct German enunciation).

Here's What It's Like To Own A Crazy Rare Mitsubishi 3000GT

Sep 25 2014 1:10pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Writing for Jalopnik certainly has its perks. For example, it allows me to have a comfortable breakfast in bed while hundreds call me an idiot for saying a Ferrari is a supercar. But on rare occasions, there emerges something truly special, in the form of a super rare '90s Japanese muscle car. Here's what that's like.Rea ...

VANCOUVER, B.C. – Two weeks to go until its debut at the Pacific Forest Rally in Merritt, B.C., and the first Scion FR-S rally car in Canada is still missing a few parts. Like seats. And doors. And there’s just the one gravel tire bolted on. Are the dynamic duo behind the upcoming campaign worried at all? “Oh, it’ll be done in plenty of time,” says mechanic and co-driver Nick Shtyrin, leaning back on ...
