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.

24 Hours of LeMons Chicago: The Winners!

Jul 28 2014 10:36pm CDT | Source: Car and Driver

For the 24 Hours of LeMons’ fifth visit to the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet, Illinois, we started things off with inspections of some strange-O engine-swapped machinery on Friday, then ran one long race session that started on Saturday morning and finished at midnight. With the lack of a break between sessions, mechanical problems tended to knock cars out of contention for class leads but heightened a near-panic-stricken sense of urgency among the teams that wanted their ...

Suzuki Returns to MotoGP | Exclusive Inside Story

Jul 28 2014 6:36pm CDT | Source: Ultimate Motorcycling

Suzuki Returns from MotoGP Grand Prix (prototype) motorcycle racing has become alarmingly expensive over the last few years. It was never cheap, of course, but the combination of increasing levels of technical complexity coupled with the appalling economic conditions dealt MotoGP a series of nasty blows. The problem became so acute that, when both Kawasaki (in 2009) and Suzuki (2011) withdrew, the grid dwindled down to just 16 entrants at one point. Both ...

Five discontinued cars we’ll miss (and five we won’t)

Jul 28 2014 9:56am CDT | Source: Driving Canada

As the saying goes, nothing good lasts forever. It’s an unfortunate facet of life that applies to stuff like KFC’s Double Down sandwich, your favourite shirt and cars. Some nameplates have been around for decades, while others have their plugs pulled at some point due to slow sales. Yes, it’s the very reason why we’ve lost countless cars we’ve loved. Whenever it happens, a part of us hurts when we find out that the days of a car we love are numbered. Because it never gets any ...

Lexus GX has quietly more than doubled its sales this year

Jul 26 2014 5:25pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: SUV, Lexus, Luxury There are some things in this industry that we're perplexed by, like the infotainment system on our long-term Subaru WRX or why the Mitsubishi Mirage is allowed to exist, among other things. Let's add one more to that group, with the Lexus GX. It's not a particularly bad vehicle for a big, body-on-frame brute, remaining one of the only true SUVs in the mid-size luxury class, alongside the equally old fashioned Land Ro ...

2015 Mitsubishi Lancer

Jul 22 2014 9:31pm CDT | Source: The Car Connection

The 2015 Mitsubishi Lancer and Lancer Evolution both feel a little out of place in today's market. Where so many economy cars have stretched their style and available features into the realm of luxury and high-tech, these Mitsubishis remain tried and true econo-cars. But, assume that we're calling that charming or cut ...
