Theory of Evo-lution

Mitsubishi’s theory of evolution was simple; take a standard model Lancer and turn it into a blisteringly fast weapon and keep updating it. The first Lancer Evo was released in 1992 and ten evolutions and loads of motorsport success later the Evo X was the final version. While it may have fully evolved and is no longer built, Turners Hamilton has a very nice example so you don’t have to miss out. Read on...

Beautiful Bargain

Alfa Romeo’s entry into the super-mini race has an air of sophistication and exclusivity that comes with the famous Italian brand. And while critics were quick to point out that the Mito was not in the class of BMW’s Mini in terms of performance and handling you could also argue that the Mito wins on looks and style.

Mighty Mouse

For the uninitiated, the Riley Elf is basically a Mini with a slightly bigger boot, more chrome and a bit more “luxury”. But despite the upmarket extras, the Elf is often seen as the poorer cousin to the Mini despite its cute looks and Mini driving appeal.

Is the FTO a Forgotten JDM Gem?

In the nineties, the Mitsubishi FTO was quite a looker with decent performance to boot. But over the years, as many got old and shabby, they are more likely remembered as a beat-up Japanese import with a space-saver on the right front, a WOF that expired years ago and a science experiment interior. There are few survivors but Turners Napier has this really nice one. Read on...
