The Evolution V was introduced in January of 1998, after WRC created a new “World Rally Car” class, which abided by Group A regulations but no longer had to meet homologation quotas. The aggressive bodywork included fender flares, hood vents, a deeper front chin spoiler, massive cooling vents in the bumper and an adjustable aluminum rear wing improved aerodynamics and gave the Evo V a mean stance. As expected, performance increased to 275 lb-ft of torque and 276 hp due to an improved turbocharger, bigger fuel injectors, lighter pistons and increased cam duration. Wheel size and offset were increased to 17” and ET38, respectively, to accommodate the new Brembo brakes, which used a bigger master cylinder.
