"With fender flares and more torque; the 5th generation Lancer Evo."
The Lancer Evolution series that had continued through the Evo I, II, and III took a major leap forward in May 1996. With the full model change of the base Lancer sedan, the true second generation of the Evo series, the Lancer Evolution IV was born.
The mounting position of the 4G63 was flipped around 180 degrees, and the output now reached 276 HP, with maximum torque also improved to 260.3 ft-lb. But the most significant change was the introduction of the electronically controlled AYC (Active Yaw Control), which now replaced the mechanical LSD in the rear differential of previous models.
Following thereafter the Lancer Evo V appeared in January 1998. This Lancer Evo V was given a bigger size class body than the previous Lancers, to meet WRC specifications.
While its rivals took full advantage of the WR car regulations which started in 1997, the Lancer Evo stuck to fighting on as a Group A car and the introduction of a wide body was an obvious necessity. The engines maximum torque was improved to 274.8 ft-lb, and some changes were implemented, such as using a helical LSD for the front differential, and inverted dampers for the suspension.
In January 1999 of the following year, an even more advanced Lancer Evo VI appeared. External differences with the V were minor, but the internals had thoroughly matured as a road going sports car, with a further refined engine and suspension.
The first anniversary model ever in the Lancer Evo series appeared in December 1999, based on this Lancer Evo VI. Commemorating the first 4 consecutive WRC championships wins ever by Tommi Makinen, the Tommi Makinen edition appeared in a limited production run of 2500 cars. This model was given a large front spoiler along with other special parts, as well ashaving a revised suspension stroke and quicker steering which were geared more for on-road driving. This was the final and ultimate model in the 2nd generation Lancer Evolution series.
