Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution 5 (CP9A)
The first CP9A chassis type Lancer Evolution, the EVO 5 was built with Group A rally class rules in mind. Fender flares were added to allow greater track and wider 17 inch wheels, and suspension was completely reworked. An adjustable aluminium rear wing was now included, and Brembo brakes, Recaro seats and a Momo airbag steering wheel were included with most models.
EVO 5 power was now at 208kW (280hp) and weight was kept low true to the EVO racing heritage, making for a very quick car indeed.

This model is allowed for import
- Evolution 5 RS
The model intended for race use. Made 100kg lighter with optional aircon and power windows, no airbags, plus other changes. So strong is Mitsubishi's assumption that the RS is for race use it comes with standard Mitsubishi Cedia seats and brakes since for competition use these parts would be replaced according to the owner's wishes and requirements.
