Urban Rally Cars: Lancer Evo FTW

As the industry-standard Subaru WRX gets uglier with each iteration, and the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution continues to improve, the latter has now overtaken the former as the daily driver to own for fans of rally racing. A modern WRC car has a roughly 300 hp turbo 4 cylinder engine, all-wheel-drive, and a paddle-shifting gearbox, and the Evo is all of the above in a really handsome package. This is a seriously capable car in the $30K range, for anyone who needs to do a Scandinavian flick on the way to work every day.
