The Lancer Evolution VIII is a pretty cool car from the factory. Bred from rally and tuner-friendly, that 4G63 engine under the hood will always have a place in our hearts. But it's hard to top a V-8.

This Evolution has been extensively modified into a top-level drag car capable of running eight-second quarter-mile times. It uses an LSX V-8 engine with a 91-millimeter Turbonetics turbocharger attached, but retains its all-wheel drive system. It has enough thrust to do all-wheel drive burnouts, and sounds wonderful.
