The Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution V
Lancer Evolution V History
Mitsubishi Evo 5 Interior
The Evo’s Active Yaw Control (AYC) first used in the previous Evo 4 was upgraded in the Evo 5. A front helical limited-slip differential was added to increase optimum torque distribution, enhancing cornering performance and braking stability even further.
Under the bonnet the Evolution V also got an upgrade. Lighter pistons, a larger turbocharger nozzle, and other changes boosted maximum torque to 38.0 kg-m. A more powerful engine output meant the Evo 5 needed improved brakes. We added Brembo callipers, giving much improved braking. These new larger brakes called for larger 225/45ZR17 tyres to be fitted.
