My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

The very last Lancer Evolution will be auctioned off for charity by Mitsubishi Motors USA.
This is the vocabulary used to describe the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution over the past decade. Arguably the originator of the four-door sports car genre, the Lancer Evolution is applauded worldwide for its combination of power, agility and Super All-Wheel Control. And now, you can be the owner of the very last Evo produced.
Mitsubishi will be auctioning the last Lancer Evolution Final Edition…the US1600 car. To make things even better, all proceeds from the auction will go to Feeding America Riverside | San Bernardino and Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County.
The auction will take place on eBay beginning at 9 a.m. PT Thursday, September 8 and concludes Thursday, September 15 at 9:00 a.m. PT. The auction corresponds with national Hunger Action Month™, when Feeding America and member food banks ask everyone in America to take action and fight hunger in their community, all September long.
The beloved and highly revered Mitsubishi Evo is going out in style with the Final Edition model, which features a pulse-pounding turbocharged and intercooled DOHC 16-valve 4-cylinder 2.0L engine with 303 horsepower, making the Final Edition the most powerful mass-produced Evolution ever built. The car is available with a 5-speed transmission and special suspension tuning.
